I want to know my rights as a woman who works and is the sole breadwinner for the family. My husband lost his job. And months before that he had bought a new house on a long installment plan. He couldn't find any job that pays enough to cover the house and living costs. The only solution we had was me going back to work as a nurse since I get paid more. And he would stay at home to take care of the kids. I'm fine with that. I love my job. But that agreement seem to be making him insecure. He tries to prove he's the man of the house by making childish arguments about trivial stuff. Like he made a huge fight once because he asked me to wash a shirt for him and I didn't because he wasn't going out and I needed to wash my own clothes because I was going to work. He stopped me from going out to work for no other reason than to prove that he's the man of the house and I should do whatever he says. Or asking me to bed after a 16 hours shift plus half an hour of commute and then making food for him and the kids. I was tired an all I wanted was to just sleep. When I said no he got angry and yelled at me and called me nashez. He makes proplems out of nothing. About food, about the kids, about everything. He also says the worst stuff about me to his family to make me look like a bad person which really hurt me because I'm an orphan and I consider his family to be mine. Despite everything I never once called him on his unemployment, or bad decision to buy an expensive house or his inability to financially support us. I know the situation is tough on him and it's making him angry. But It's tough on me too. I'm miserable. I don't want to divorce and break the family apart. I just want peace of mind and respect. I don't want to worry about fighting everytime I step inside the house. I want to be treated like an equal partner not a slave that works for him who has to obey or otherwise i'm a bad wife. How is it fair that I carry the family on my shoulders and yet i'm treated that way?
