    Default Is he right?

    My husband works 5 days a week. He leaves at around 6:00am and gets home at around 6-6:30pm. He does Auto Electrical work.

    I'm a stay at home Mum. I have two kids DD is 6 and DS is 4. I homeschool & I'm starting up a small home business to help with money.

    When I ask my husband for help he says - "I work! I don't get to lay around and look after the kids all day" or "You chose to be a stay at home mum so you can do what you should be doing"

    When I mention anything about money - "When are you going to contribute to the family?" (Apparently looking after our children and educating them isn't contributing)

    When I have a bad period - "Everyone else seems to manage, why can't you?"

    Is he right? Because I chose to be a SAHM, should I do everything?
    Should he come home, sit on his bum and stare at his phone all night?

    He barely spends time with the kids.
    He only comes near me when he wants sex.
    He says he's tired but so am I!? Unlike him I don't get to stop everything at 6:30pm, have my dinner cooked for me and have someone clean up after me. I'm going non stop from the time I wake up until I go to bed.

    I really feel like he should help out a bit or at least spend time with the kids. Am I being unreasonable?

    TIA xxx
