Sorry for the long post, had to provide some background before posting the current issue (Good thing is I can link to this thread whenever I need to post some background before sharing anything). Feel free to skip to "Current issue at hand" if you don't want to read the rest. Basic stuff: Married for 15+ years. Have a 14 year old. Husband has always been against me working right from the beginning. But I am ambitious and highly qualified. Took time off to work from home when my son was younger but now for the past 5 years, I have been working outside. Earn well though not as much as him (Could have earned much more if I had not taken the semi-break). Have built a good career despite his complete lack of support. He does not help out much at home and shows absolutely no interest in my career. Doesn't even ask how my day was at work or check if a major event went well, etc. I used to cook more when I worked from home but now, I do things as needed (If he is hungry, I cook + make something every weekend that he likes). Cleaning, dishes, grocery shopping etc. are unavoidable regardless of whether one cooks. As a couple: We also have some personality differences - he is the passive aggressive kind who will mope for days and go on silent treatment mode to punish others. He is egoistic and won't ever tell me that he appreciates me leave alone loves me. He is a "feeler" but only feels his own pain. Cannot put himself in my shoes ever. I am more like a volcano who erupts suddenly, vents and then gets on with life as if nothing happened. I am not particularly expressive or touchy-feely myself (more of a "think" person) and he keeps pointing out that I am not empathetic. Have fights at least once in two-three months about typical couples stuff like 1. He doesn't help out at home 2. Doesn't support my working 3. I nag 4. He doesn't connect with my family well but expects me to spend days at his place during our India trips....you know how all these go with Indian men. Overall, we are OK and try to get along most of the time watching movies and getting into some interesting discussions about life/politics/philosophy etc. but once in a while, he does bring up the D-word. Issue on hand: With the Covid situation, everyone is working from home and last week I was super busy. I had several calls and online meetings that went on for hours. I mostly served leftovers from the weekend and made some very simple stuff with rice that we ate for 2-3 days. Note that he kept saying he is just lazing around as the whole work-from-home thing isn't working for him, which means he could have stepped up and cooked too. Yesterday he tells me in the middle of another unrelated fight that he is upset that I barely cooked and made anything special for him the whole week! I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time. This is not a vacation for us; it is just moving regular work to the home setting. Despite him knowing how busy I was, he expects me to cater to his needs and adjust my schedule according to his requirements. I pointed out this to him and his reaction was that he never wanted a wife who works! After 15+ years of marriage he keeps saying this once in a while!! We are not talking right now. Staying silent is not my forte and at the same time, I am sad and disappointed by his expectations and complete lack of understanding that my career is something I cannot give up as it makes me happy. I also worry about the next couple of weeks! I am going crazy after just 5 days. I don't want to apologize and I also know that if I try to have a discussion, the fight will get worse (has happened several times in the past). Any suggestions or similar stories to make me feel better?
