Role Shift. Now I'm The Breadwinner
Q: My partner and I have shifted roles in our marriage. He has been the breadwinner for the past nine years but recently stepped down to pursue a different career. Now, I am the breadwinner; however, I now feel like I shouldn’t have to play maid, chef, lover, therapist to him when he is home. He always wanted me to understand his space when he was working but now he expects me to be the loving wife even though I’m supporting us as well. Any thoughts?
A: Ok when he was the breadwinner, were you working? I only ask to see if anything other than his desire to have space to find his path has changed his perspective. To me, it sounds like a conversation of value, respect, and space needs to be had. Relationships aren’t meant to be perfect, they are meant to evolve and while evolving, have crunchy parts.
