Hello guys, it’s Feature Friday! Every Friday I would be sharing a real life experience and situation of a reader who needs my opinion. If you have a situation that you need my opinion on, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Read the situation of the reader and my opinion after the cut. The names have been changed to protect the identity of the person being featured. Enjoy!
I am a newly wedded bride who is 5 months pregnant. I got married to my boyfriend after 5 years of dating on and off. During the on times it was great but the situations that led to the off times were usually quite dramatic. There were several times I thought we would never come back together but we always did and now we’re married.
Here I am married to a man I have loved for 5 years and even though I have known him for that long, I am still very excited to be his wife but I worry he is not quite as excited.
My husband is self-employed and ever since we’ve been married, he comes home by 10 or 11pm EVERY NIGHT. Sometimes he claims to come home early when he shows up by 9pm. And when I ask what keeps him out so late, he says he was attending series of business meetings with friends and clients.
Like I said, I am 5 months pregnant and the entire situation just weighs me down because I would hate to complain to him about it and make it seem like I am not being supportive of my husband’s business ventures.
How can I get past this? Is there a way around it? Please tell me what I could do to make things better.
I feel your pain as a pregnant woman who sits at home all day doing nothing, bored and having no one to talk to. All I can say is WELCOME TO MARRIED LIFE! This is just one of the perks that accompany marriage and being a housewife.
Given that you are pregnant and your husband is self employed, it is ideal and expected that he come home earlier than he does and probably also come home for lunch and all that but we have to give him the benefit of the doubt here.
Like you said, you would hate to be dogging him about not coming home early enough when he is actually out there working hard to seal deals that would be beneficial to your family.
Give him the benefit of the doubt FOR NOW! Sooner or later, those supposed meetings would pay off and you would all smile to the bank.
In the meantime, please refrain from putting yourself under any unnecessary pressure and stress during your pregnancy. If you over think things, it might take a toll on your pregnancy and we do not want that to happen.
So please sit back and relax at least until you have your baby.
