Re: Wife sits on her ass all day watching tv while I work 70 hours a week
Had similar issue with husband who lost job and got depressed.

He kicked into high gear for 2 reasons. One was he had bill obligations and ran out of savings. Two I made a Home repair, improvements, and desires list (most of which we had talked about already). Putting a list of things we needed but couldn't afford and sacrifices being made for lack of extra income painted a good picture and incentive.

Need to work with her desires and things that if she loves you would make you happy. Work together for a common goal, maybe a nicer house or luxury vacation if she works again. Women think differently and have "nesting" instincts usually. Keep that in mind :)

Should really talk to her about the kids thing, and if there's a massive difference there, you need help or out.

I don't recommend it, but I've known men to put most of their money into savings (secretly) and cut the budget, force wife into work this way. Retirement or college funds are valid reasons that might work openly.

Good luck

Talk to her OP.

What's the link between talking to her and a picture of a sleeping animal?
Your post doesn't make sence.

Talk to her about it - Tell her she is better than just sitting around at home all day...She might just be stuck in a rut...hf
 Quoting: showgirls1980


I tried...like I said I even tried to teach her yoga. She is iNto those ghost shows so I gave her Dion Fortunes book so she could see how things work...I don't think she read a single page. She has no ambition to do anything. Yes she helps with chores but sometimes half assed or only when absolutely necessary.

Re: Wife sits on her ass all day watching tv while I work 70 hours a week
it's one thing when there are kids to take care of, but no kids, no job, luxury car, tv all day ect...? WOW!
You will have a hard time pushing this one on her, as a precident has been set.

My wife stays home and does not "work" per se...
but...
We have 4 kids she takes care of, she cleans the house, does the laundry, cooks the meals, cleans up after, even mows the lawn and weed-wacks the yard... she does the shopping, and carts the kids around to various events in her 1996 Honda Accord EX. No pool, no luxury cars.
That is her full time job.
Mine is to provide and protect for our Family

It's all in your world perspective on what is important.

Kids would be different. The biggest issue is we built this life together, we both contributed to the lifestyle. Now I am left holding the bag. I never planned to have to do it alone.

Man, here's what I would do...

Sit her down and relay everything you are feeling exactly how you feel it. Don't sugar coat anything. Be completely honest with her and explain why these things make you feel the way you do.

Give it a couple of weeks to see if anything changes. Don't push it on her, just see if she does it on her own.

If she doesn't make an effort to change, then start looking at getting out of the marriage. Keep a record of what she does and doesn't do so you can relay that in the divorce.

Re: 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.
 Quoting: Angry Hierophant


Record her on camera for a few weeks so when you divorce you can show the judge the lifestyle she's used to

No. Bad idea. That's the standard for how you are to maintain her after the divorce.

OP, when you got promoted didn't the two of you decide TOGETHER whether she would continue to work or not? I would say that if you let her make that decision herself while you had to keep working, you share much of the blame in this. IF you are a married couple you should plan, not do everything instinctively.

You can't force her to change. You can only change yourself.

I believe u get what u are given and it's up to u to make it work. (U attract what you need to learn from in life and u can't escape it)

Be supportive, positive and take a look at what u can change in yourself.

Maybe your wife is depressed? 70 hours a week away from you is a lot even if that's all she ever does at home...

My wife works that much sometimes a week. Sometimes even more!

The thing is that it was impossible for me to find a job WHILE looking after our kid.

Out of boredom and under the pressure to pay off credit card debt (no thanks to expensive car repairs), I started looking around for jobs and found one on craiglist that's a full time job at the right hours where I could be home in time for my kid from school to help out with homework, etc.
