Had our first, fight I guess, since the therapy session. She was mad at me because I forgot to call to tell her I’d be late for dinner. It was a very unnecessary fight. I’m sure everyone on here can pretty much guess how bad traffic is from Chicago to the suburbs, it’s awful. So I get home and I’m met with, and I’m paraphrasing.

Her: Gee thanks for the call.
Me: Umm, what?
Her: You’re late, it would’ve been nice if you’d call to say I’ll be late.
Me: I’m sorry * I was being sincere BTW*
Her: Oh, well as long as you’re sorry it’s A-OK
Me: What’s your deal?
Her: You’re inconsiderate.
Me: No, I just had a lot of stuff I was thinking about
Her: Obviously your wife wasn't one of those things.
Me: Look, let’s just calm down and talk like civilized adults. You’re mad because I didn’t call to tell you I’d be late and this affected dinner right?
Her: Yeah we’re eating later.
Me: I’m sorry. I’ll call next time. Let’s not blow this out of proportion. No harm, no foul.
Her: better not " forget" again
Me: Aye Aye Captain-tress * salute*
Her: *eye roll, but with a smile so I’ll take it*

Actually, if I was preparing dinner, I would be upset, too. Does she normally have dinner ready about the same time every day?

She wasn't preparing dinner, she held off and waited. Yeah, usually it's the same time ever day

While I'm thinking about it. IDK how consistent I'll be posting starting next Thursday, I'll be in Mexico for his spring break( school is super late with that, but it's all good). I know some of you are wondering, yes, my wife is coming, Rachel isn't. I'm not " rewarding" my wife in any way, this is my son's vacation, not a reward for her. Anyway, the internet will be very slow I predict, but we'll see. I'm pretty excited.

So she waits until you're home to start fixing dinner? If nokt and you're only 10 minutes late, dinner should have been close to done already. What a cry baby.

I would not expect a call if my husband was going to be 10 minutes late. I would have dinner pretty much ready when I expected him, and 10 more minutes wouldn't make a big difference. That's just my $.02 on that.

10 minutes is not really even late - it's catching a couple more red lights on the way home. It sounded like you were over an hour late. She gets mad at that?

I think she really needs individual counseling.

Sounds like she needs to be dropped into a third-world country and try to make it on her own for awhile. She might be more grateful later.

She keeps bringing up that her life was ruined with a teen pregnancy. What exactly were her plans otherwise? Sounds like she didn't want an education or a career. So her life would have been to get married and have a kid. Isn't that how it turned out anyway? How was her life "ruined"?
