Over the years my health improved. When the twins were ten years old, we experienced an extremely cold winter. My husband now had his own business and he was working round the clock. Each night when he came home, he had his dinner and just collapsed in bed. I resented this as I felt I was running the household and looking after the children while he had only one job. He tried to make me see that he had to make the most of the situation to fix burst pipes as the demand will not be there once the winter is over. I refused to see his point of view. I would do stupid things to show my resentment such as letting his dinner burn as he was not home at dinner time.
After a time, he would stay at his parents’ house as his last job was close to them. Over the years, the tension between us was never resolved but the resentment was building and our relationship never did recover. Throughout the years, he always made sure it was ‘children time’ on Sundays although I knew he was tired.
