I know this is not a new complaint, but I just have to get it off my chest.
Ladies, if all you do on your blog and Twitter and Facebook (and real life) is bitch about how stupid your husband is, how incompetent he is, how thoughtless he is, how unsupportive he is, how misogonystic he is, how bad with the kids he is?
I don’t feel one IOTA of sympathy for you.
Because here’s the thing. You married him. So, except in very rare cases, I figure one of two things.
1. You knew he was an ass before you married him, and you married him anyway. Maybe you were desperate to get married. Maybe you thought you could change him. Maybe you were pretending he wasn’t as bad as you thought. But you still married him.
2. You’re doing it as an act. Because along with the “bad mommy” & “drunk mommy” acts, the “long suffering wife of an ass/buffoon” act seems kind of popular on these here interwebs.
Either way, I’m just not sympathetic.
And frankly, I wish you’d stop it.
Edited to add: To clarify, I’m NOT talking about the occasional post/tweet/status update to vent. We’ve all been there. I’m also not talking about if you’re dealing with actual problems in your marriage and are blogging about them as you work through them.
