I have five-year-old twins. My husband and I tried for ten years to have a baby and finally were successful with in-vitro fertilization. We decided that I would stay home with the babies until they went to school. My old job is waiting for me but my husband insists that I stay home and take care of the twins. He even threatened to leave if I went back to work which is idiotic. I am tired of him trying to control me. This has been going on since he became the sole breadwinner. How can I convince him that it’s OK for me to go back to work?
This isn’t about you going back to work. It’s about your husband’s need to control. You are going to have to assert yourself and do what you feel is good for you and your children. If you give in every time he says jump then your life will be his not yours. Don’t let him bully you.
