Yeh I can see where he would find resentment but he hasn't actually said he hates his job and wants to find a more balanced work life.. He's not explaining himself. He is just lashing out at poor op. He's just winging about the problem and not finding a solution.. How annoying.. He has no problem solving skills.

There really is no amount of money that could convince DH and I for him to work away. It just isnt something I want to do.

OP im sure there is way more to this story or at least his side of it....i know my DH has at times been "jealous" when i was SAHM (mind u this was mainly on PPL or BB etc) but still the grass is always greener on the other side ..when im at home i used to envy the "free time" my DH would get at work and when i went to back i remember at times how much i wish i wasnt here but at home with my kids......clearly there is a LOT of resentment between you both...the email was wayyyyy out of line....someone once said to me that you dont really know your partner until youve had kids together and sometimes it brings out ppl's true philosophies on life....i suspect your DH has absolutely NO IDEA what it is like for you 24/7 alone with 2 kids 5 weeks at a time and or he really wants to change his own work situation...i hope thats what it is....if not youve probably got an uphill battle with him cos it could mean he is just a misogynist ahole....i guess the ultimate question is..is this a dealbreaker for you? and him? what would make him "Happy" one day a week, two days now or when your youngest is 2 or 3 or 4 ? clearly you feel like u missed out working when your oldest DD was younger and want to savour the time now...and the logistics of working (ie MIL, hours, no better off financially etc) dont cut it for you....good luck i hope you guys can work it out.

Problem is he's not saying saying that so op can only assume that's the problem.. Until he actually says what his issue is so it can be resolved. There's def something missing.
And of course money isn't more important than family.. Thank you.
