Last night was the big 18th anniversary. I took the day off and we just relaxed all day together. We exchanged gifts, she bought me a watch and I bought her a necklace. We went to dinner and had a romantic evening. Despite the obvious hardship I love her and I couldn’t imagine being with anyone else nor would I want to. She’s as beautiful as the day she turned 18( Confused?remember we met at 14 lol.) She’s everything I could ever ask for and more. I’m ready for 50 more

Then you need to lie down & quit complaining.

We do have some things to fix. Unfortunately, 1 nice night doesn't solve everything

And within those next 50 years, we need to work on a lot of things.

Yeah, you keep telling yourself that. You need to work on them, she's happy as a clam.

I forget who raised the point on this thread, but someone asked about her plans after our son leaves. I grew curious and asked her about it straight up.

Me: Sweet heart, have you considered what your going to do with your time once ( our son) is out of the house, like, as a working and married man. Are you going back to work?
Her: No, I worked hard enough in my life.
Me: When?
Her: I carried around a baby for nine months, had a baby, waitressed AND raised it.
Me: Waitressing is work, carrying a baby and raising it is called parenting. You waitressed for 3 years. You haven’t worked in 16 years.
Her: So do we need the money?
Me: No, I was just curious about your plans.
Her: I’ll be a homemaker.
Me( trying to inject a little humor): Babe, that requires cooking, cleaning, laundry, actually making the home, not napping and online shopping.
Her: Very funny * eye roll *
Me: Let’s just get down to it. When he’s gone, you want to do nothing all day but watch tv, sleep, and either shop online or in person. Ideally for you there’s a cleaning lady involved. I’m guessing you’d like to live in Chicago or own a condo in the city for convenience. Am I on the right path?
Her: Yes, I’ve earned those things.
Me: Oh, do you want to trade places for a day I want to be a sloth too.
Her: I’m not a sloth.
Me: Let’s be honest, you’re the rare blonde haired Italian sloth. You’re one of a kind.
Her: Still doesn't change the fact that I'm not getting a job

Another fifty years of that sounds just great if you leave her, she'll have to get a job. She knows you won't that's why she's not prepping for that possibility.

I'm curious. Even with him still there, what is she doing all day? He is 19. Having a 19-year-old around doesn't exactly add a lot of work around the house for a parent, unless they are doing the 19-year-old's laundry, cleaning the 19-year-old's room, or cooking special meals for the 19-year-old. A parent shouldn't be doing any of those things for a 19-year-old. Maybe if the 19-year-old has the flu or something or cooking a special meal for a special occasion, but beyond that the 19 yo should be doing that for themselves.

And it doesn't sound like she's doing a lot around the house anyway.

Did she really call your son "it"?

Personally I'd tell her she has to get a job now, even with him still there.

If I leave her she'll remarry and do the same thing.
