A rant on a whiny husband

My husband whines nonstop. He complains about everything. Sometimes
I hate his crybaby guts. He acts like he's got the weight of the world
on his shoulders and is too busy to be bothered by his wife or
children. Asking him to spend time with us or help out around the
house has become a tedious chore in and of itself. He has an excuse
for everything. He never acts like a man and takes responsibilty for
his actions. He sticks his tongue out at our small daughter when she
won't give him kisses whenever he asks. And then he whines at her. I
find that manipulative behavior toward a toddler disgusting. When I
say so to him he retreats physically and emotionally to punish me for
not finding his behavior perfect and charming. I'm very close to done
with him.
My dad treated my mom like a queen, and all of their kids were
treated respectfully and lovingly. How was I duped into thinking my
husband was like my dad, when really he's an ass?

At first I just thought "ha! ha! whiny husband!" but then I read about how he sticks his tongue out at your daughter when he doesn't get his way and now I'm all "that's messed up."

I'm so sorry. He does sound a bit immature. But the manipulative behavior with the small child is really not acceptable. If you could get into counseling and just bring up that alone I think a good therapist would guess the other stuff after a few sessions.

I think it might be time to end that. When you get to the point where you hate their whiney guts... Yep, it's time.

I had a friend who was married to someone like that. He pitched a fit if she gave her kids a birthday party, whining about "where's mine?" She was like, "Hello? You're forty?"

It got so bad he would compare the gifts she got him at Christmas to the ones she got the kids. Finally, she couldn't take it anymore.
