Recently wonderful Lori and I were ranting about couples where each one is waiting for the other to make a change. I said what was needed was for either one to say, “I’m Going to Grow Up; I Hope You Do Too.”
Yes, I’m encouraging you to choose to grow up regardless of what your husband does. But I want to tackle something more today. I hear women complain their husband is just one more kid for whom they care. I think some exaggerate, but I’ve seen some couples where there is way too much truth in those words.
So what do you do if you’re tired of being his mother? I suggest you stop. No warning, no ultimatum, no rant, just stop. Do what you would do if he acted like a grown up and let the card fall where they may. Treat him like an adult and let him figure out how to deal with it. If he complains, tell him you realised you were treating him like a kid and you’re working to stop doing that.
