Me & my SO have been together 5 years, we got together when I was 14.. well we always had a rocky realtionship but we always got through things & came out stronger at the end.. now we have a daughter & I'm working & he is not because he is in school which I was always fine with but he just makes it seem like he is the only person that has smurf going on, I feel like he just thinks about himself & I have tried working through things but nothing gets better.. I know we are so stressed out & I hope things wouldn't be like this once he works & we are more finacially stable but I just don't know if I can make it until then.. sometimes I feel like I just want out of our realtionship.. I have a place, I have a job, I have a car so I COULD leave but he has no where to go, no job, & pretty much nothing.. I was so upset & told him he had to leave the other day that it just wasn't working & then I found him crying in the kitchen & he was saying sorry & that he is just so stressed out right now & I just felt horrible.. I try so hard to be there for him & help support him & I feel like I dont get any of that in return & idk what to do..Counseling isn't an option right now because we have no money for it & my insurance won't cover it & he doesn't even have insurance & like I said I have tried talking with him several several times.. things get better than bam we are back to the old routine!
You're a baby, and have a lot of responsibilites, sometimes it easier to leave, then feel helpless like nothing is ever going to change, but just remember the grass is not always greener on the other side. I hope you figure things out and things start looking up for your family.

Yeah I mean if he had somewhere to go I think it would deff. be best to just get space but he has no where, his dads house is like an hour & half from his school & he would have no way getting back & forth.. maybe I shouldnt worry about him like that but its hard cause he is the father of my child & my SO of 5 years so I just feel stuck
definitely agree with counselling and trying to make things better.... im thinking the fact he was crying about it actually shows he cares too... Life IS hard and there are ups and downs in everyone's life and career... just sit down and make an action plan, take it day by day.
It was like that with my ex, he'd cry and make me feel like smurf so I took him back and the same thing happened again. I had to just cut him loose. After 7 years of the same smurf. I had enough. Good luck. They also have counseling.
