“Ladies, That Isn’t a Man”: Wife Calls Out Neglectful Men After Husband Works 13-Hour Day, Then Comes Home to Do the Dishes


“This man worked a 13-hour day in 90-degree weather and walked through the door and asked, “I’m home, what can I do to help you?” Yet, these are words I hear from him often.

He is not a “unicorn.” Men like these exist. The kind that wash the dishes after you cook, who do the yard work because he knows you hate it, who work 60+ hour work weeks and still comes home to play with his kids and give his wife a kiss, asking, “What can I do to help?”

Who gets up some nights to change the babies diaper while I get ready for a night feeding, who gives the kids baths and puts them down for bed, who spends his weekends with his family, who cracks a cold one once the kids are down and plays farkle and rummy with his wife.

Leader of the home, equal partner with his wife, provider, protector and hands-on father. I’m so glad I married this man and that he also acknowledges my hard work at home with two kids, nursing, cooking and cleaning. We take care of each other its 50/50 and we are raising our boys to be men, just like their father.

I see so many women cry and complain that their partner doesn’t help with the kids, bills, housework, give them any attention, etc, and my heart breaks when I hear “oh that’s men, or I just deal with it and suffer.”

Ladies, that isn’t a man. Make him do better or find better! If you got a good one that treats you like a Queen, then treat him like the King he is.

Marriage is a partnership, not a dictatorship. My husband and I both take care of each other and are very happy.
Thanks for all the love. Many blessings and happiness to all you Kings and Queens.”
