Have you asked him these things? I think we can internalize things about how our spouse might feel till we're exhausted and we still don't know if we're right or not.

The only things he would like me to do that I'm not doing is:

1. Be at the whim of his job

2. Not hate it when he jobs oversteps our family.

Are these things he's said. Or are they how you think he feels?

p.s. Was your husband an only child? Was his dad a workaholic?

My dad was. Still is. He can't stay retired if his life depended on it.
