My husband has recently been placed on gardening leave and has six months off before he starts his new job.
I had assumed that we would work on the house together, share chores and generally use the extra breathing space this will give us to have some relaxing times.
He now tells me that he wants to go travelling!
He's in his late thirties and we have two young children so by default that means I'll be on my own.
I am speechless with rage about this. His view is that he has worked hard (he has) and that he has an opportunity to disappear off for four months backpacking and he'll never get that again.
Kindly (I'm being sarcastic) we'll visit him for our summer holiday but apart from that he'd be off.
Obviously that means I'll have to work even harder as all the school runs/meals/chores/house etc I'll have to do on my own with no help from him at all.
He can't see what the problem is and this is causing some issues, can I please have some advice?
