Similarly no relationship can work if the two people in it don’t share their responsibilities. Therefore, it should be understood by both the partners that they always have to share the burden, and responsibilities.
It is generally seen that women always tend to be more responsible; at first they do so out of love, they think if they will take all the burden and pressures, it will make their partner feel good and love them more. Which, to an extent does happen, but what looks like a favor in beginning slowly becomes duty, and in that case you would not be able to say anything because you are the one who initiated taking responsibilities.
There are many ways to let your husband know that you want him to take his share of responsibilities.
Communication At The Right Time Is Must
First of all it is very necessary that you realize the importance of communication. Most of the time, communication gap becomes an issue, where you are not able to convey what you are feeling.
At times it can be really frustrating when you cannot vent out your feelings. The best way is, you choose the right time to talk, by right time I mean, when you know he would be calm and ready to listen to you.
Express Your Feelings
After you have done this, tell him how you feel and what issues you are facing alone. Say everything in a way that you make your point clear but also don’t accuse him of being irresponsible.
In some cases there is quite a possibility where your partner is hyper by nature, and tends to take everything otherwise. In that case, one would have to be a little chivalrous, because things wouldn’t work the straightway here.
Discuss Your Problem
If a woman is facing such problem, then she should begin making a leeway for excuses slowly, for instance if you are the one who always goes to pick up kids and you want your husband to take that responsibility then you should cleverly come up with some excuse at that very moment, but of course you would have to look for a genuine excuse that doesn’t look like you just made it up.
Take The Help Of Elders
Another way would be to share the problem with the elders of the house. At times your husband may not listen to you but if he respects his elders he would surely give an ear to what they have to say.
If after everything your husband still doesn’t understand your point, then you should take a stand for yourself and very firmly tell him that it wouldn’t work out this way and that he has to make a choice very clearly between taking responsibilities and running away from them.
