Wife sits on her ass all day watching tv while I work 70 hours a week
On top I have health issues working to pay for all this shit. It didnt start out that way. She had a job and quit when I got promoted, assuming I would carry the load. I would'nt even mind if she did something productive, or even if we had kids, but rotting in front of the tube all day is disgusting. I didnt sign up for this. Thinking of confronting her - either help or we downsize, major. No pool, no fucking luxury car. I love her but feel like Im being exploited, its bad enough at work but I don't expect it from family.

I tried. Hatha yoga. If it does not provide instant gratification she loses interest.

Depends on length of marriage. If youve only been married a short time, odds are good there will be little or none at all.

See all that you just wrote?

Now, you need to man up and tell her exactly everything that you just wrote here as if she read it already. Communication is key. If you dont man up, the resentment you feel now will continue to grow into pure hatred. The situation will end badly. Ive been here. Ive done this. And, if you sit her down and have a frank but compassionate discussion with her, she may reveal something to you that you did not expect. She is withholding something. But, she is afraid that you will get upset. The irony in this is, only you can help her with this problem. But, it will take patience, compassion, love, and the ability to see beyond yourself to succeed.

Good Luck
...there is nothing to fear.
JUST DO IT.

If you work 70hrs/wk she is most likely lonely. She trades your time with her, for TV. Very simple.

Work less, and spend more time together. Oh and think about cutting the cable. That shiz is poison.

Good luck.

Not all states have alimony. Plus, of she has a marketable skill, that may knock her out of alimony.

You say you love her. Have you thought about lovingly approaching her and telling her that you feel as if your situation is unequally yoked? Appeal to the side of her that loves you. If you take an angry or mean approach, it could end up nasty because hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. If she were working would you still be working 70 hours a week? Explain simple economics, "I have to pay for my health issues, which means the luxury car has to go, or I'm going to require your financial assistance".

Consult with a lawyer, so that you know where you stand should you feel forced to choose the "D" route.
