Miserable and confused in my marriage
I'm so miserable in my marriage. I've been married 7 years. My husband expects me to cook and clean and take care of our infant daughter bc I'm the mom. He has the most ungrateful, lazy, entitled 15 yo son. He sits there and does nothing while I cook, clean, do the dishes, pick up after him, sweep, mop and take care of my baby. He can parent my child but I am absolutely not allowed to parent him. My husband gets mad when I ask him to bring his dishes to the sink. Not rinse them, or wash them, or load in the dishwasher. JUST put them in the sink. My husband manipulates me and turns every argument around to my fault. And if I ever ever dared to give him a taste of his own medicine, he flips out. He says I'm being tick for tat and petty. Even though he does that to me all the time. I only stay bc I desperately want my child to have a sibling.
I'm so tired of feeling so unappreciated and then being told I don't appreciate him enough. I feel like I could kiss his feet every second of the day and he'll never feel appreciated.
