I've been with my husband for 5-1/2 years, married 2 years. He is the most clingy, needy man I've ever met in my life and tries to monopolize every second of the day while we're at home together. Obviously, I've asked him to lend a hand while I clean the house, make dinner, do yard work and he always responds with, "Relax! I'll do it later! Come spend time with me," which he won't do because I've been down that road before. He can't study with me (grad student) and I have tons of academic work to do and he can't (or refuses) to understand that just because I do it while he's at work doesn't mean that there's more to do after he gets home. Explaining my position gets me nowhere. Ughhhhh!
Anyone with rational and logical advice on how to handle this issue, please respond. Thanks!
