Newlywed wonders if there are weekends on the ranch

By Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: My husband and I were married only three months ago.

We are both in our 60s. He has two children from his first marriage, and I have none.

We dated for three years before our marriage.

My husband has always enjoyed working, and he worked nonstop throughout our relationship.

I have asked him over and over to put aside some daylight time for me. I would settle for half a day on Saturday or Sunday.

He is a rancher and says there is no such thing as a weekend for a rancher.

He made a promise to me before our marriage that he would take time out for us. Unfortunately, since we were married, except for the honeymoon, there has not been any time for me on a weekend.

I am so very hurt. I've tried to explain this to him, but it falls on deaf ears.

He comes home at 6:30 p.m. and goes to bed at 9:30.

There is never any quality time for us. Is there any hope for our marriage?
