My husband and I are arguing. I never spend any time with him. I say, he never spends any time with me. I have my studio, my blog, my likes, my junkin. He has fishing, hunting, and football. We like NOTHING the other likes! Okay, we can’t even agree on what type of hot dog to eat! Yep, talk about night and day.
He wants ME to spend time with HIM. NOT the other way around. I hate hunting, can’t stand going to football games, think shows about hunting and fishing on TV are stupid AND I can’t fish because of my health (allergies & riding in the boat would literally kill me right now). Would it kill him to take me to the antique malls around where I live every now and then (I’m agoraphobic to a certain degree and going places is always anxiety-attack inducing) or go to some yard sales? Take me to Michaels or Hobby Lobby? Hmmmmm?????
Have any of you ever experienced this? I read so much about how husbands are so supportive of their wives’ hobbies. Well mine isn’t. Insecurity? Jealousy? Probably both. But, it’s a two-way street. I tried the one-way street for over 18 years…….our marriage almost didn’t last. So it’s no more of that now that I wrestled an identity back (which he FULLY supported me doing!).
Sorry for the venting, normally I try to keep this blog upbeat, but it’s reaching critical mass.
So, chime in! Does your spouse think you’re ignoring him when you are in your studio? Does he want you GLUED to him 24/7 after even 22 years of marriage (yep, just this May)? Or does he go with you as much as you go with him? Inquiring minds (well mine LOL) want to know!
