    I agree. This is great advice. I would definitely be doing this before you have another baby and even more work on your hands. I'm sorry but this is just a ridiculous, bordering on unhealthy, amount of time to be spending on a computer.

    Default Partner stayed on computer all day?

    I would definitely be sitting down and having a good talk with him about his his priorities. I think you will have a better idea where you stand. I think it's absolutely unacceptable that he didn't lift a finger to help you out with one thing on your birthday or make you feel special. Happy Birthday anyway, go out and do something special for yourself, you deserve it

    Happy Birthday OP!

    Grown men still play computer games? Whoop him upside the head with a firm "Grow Up!"

    That's very slack and time to tell him you're feelings about it all. Make sure you tell him you're worried about having another baby if he is still like this. You'd have to kick his butt out, as you would basically be a single mum.
    Happy birthday and I hope you get some nice me time today

    Cranky ahh no!! I'd be flipping furious!!! Seriously I would want to strangely him with his mouse cord!! Though his computer doesn't have a mouse cord

    I'm happy for DH to do things on his days off but not ALL day unless discussed first, because our weekends are usually family days or we are doing things to the house/gardens.

    It is bloody hard work looking after DD home alone whilst still making the house spotless and having dinner on the table every night. When DH is home I deserve help or a rest too. End of.

    I don't really expect any more then the above on birthdays, its just a day really but DH always tries to spoil me anyway.

    Have you tried couple counseling? I've read a lot of post about your relationship and I don't mean to be rude but its rather worrying how you get treated!
    I think it's past the point of you both being able to fix it alone without help.

    Grown adults playing computer games for hours on end need to grow up. Sorry your birthday was ruined.

    He's revolting.
    He treats you continuously like dirt. You don't need us to keep telling you this. Trust yourself in knowing that this behaviour is unacceptable.
    The sooner you leave the better.
    I hope you have the strength soon.

    I agree with waterlilly - sounds like its time for some kind of support in this?

    Does not sound like he will change. Doesn't sound like he's hearing or respecting you.
