kfeusse Posted September 18, 2012 Share Posted September 18, 2012 My husband isn't gone that much for his job, but about 6 times a year he is gone for 2-4 days depending on the reason. If he is gone 2 nights (part of 3 days) he rarely calls home. It's not that he couldn't , its that he doesn't make it a priority to do so. Am I spoiled to think it would be a nice thing for him to do...at least to let me know that he made it to his destination? He doesn't text...so that isn't an option. He doesn't check his email while he is gone, so that isn't an option. If he is gone longer than 3 nights, he might check in once. when I bring it up to him, he tells me that I shouldn't NEED him to call he is only gone x days. IT's not a matter of needing...but rather a matter of "I want to feel important and that he cared enough to call"... He is coming home this afternoon...do I mention this to him? Do I play his game and act like it doesn't bother me and just let it be? What do I do...if I mention it to him, we will end up disagreeing...we have been down that road before...and we keep hitting the same dead end. I know he loves me, I know he loves the kids...he is just with a bunch on men who he really enjoys being with and doesn't think it is needed for him to tear himself away to call home. So do I just let him have an enjoyable time and not fret whether he calls home or not? I can reach him if I do NEED him...and that isn't a problem for him....I guess, I just want to have the knowledge that he thought about me once while he was gone. Am I being petty??
