Managing work and marriage

My husband of late has been inundated with a lot of work. While I love his ambition, I feel there is a conflict between marriage and work brewing. All the burden of the house and even outside work has fallen on me, as well as the kids. I don't want to add to his worries but we're both unable to catch a break! Any advice?

  1. Its okay that he is ambitious but he should also extract some time from his busy schedule and spend some quality time with his family. I guess you should utilise the weekends. Go for an occasional dinner in the weekends or a long drive whenever possible. I do not think the schedule is that jam-packed to not consider these options. Just urge him to utilise the free time and if he does not comply then you take the initiative.*p**p* *p*

  2. Maybe something is pestering him at workplace or he is trying to run away from something, finding recluse in his work. You need to identify the same thing and try to eliminate the same for better indulgence. At the same time, as a male, he has every right to aspire for greater success, but not at the cost of personal relationships. You need to make him realize, but not through anger or frustration. By being a moral support, you can be a support pillar on which he can rely. This might be a rough patch for him. You just need to have patience and support him. *p*
