Stay-at-home husband causing tensions
This remark to your daughter is your dead canary -- telling you the marital environment is too poisonous for you all to survive it. Take emergency measures, please, and soon.
Re: Adult Problems:
Be careful, too: You've demonstrated that if your partner isn't "partnering" as you need him/her to, then you shouldn't work through it with the other person directly -- you should grow resentful and snippy. Part of having a great partner is being a great partner.
That's fair, thanks. Or: If a partner is genuinely not being enough of one to make any kind of partnership possible, then the other needs to be a great advocate for what's right, in whatever form that must take.
