How can I be more supportive of my husbands business?
My husband has become a part of a business called Market America. He is doing well for just recently starting out. I stay at home and take care of our 3 children. The thing is, is that he has meeting every Tuesday and Thursday nights and at least 2 Saturdays a month. When he is home from his day job he is on the phone or has people over talking business. I know he is doing this to better our financial stability but I am at the point that I think I am starting to resent him for it. He does so much with our family but he isn't really there because of "business" calls ect...... I do not want to fight with him. I want to be supportive but I also want him to realize that we are just important now as we were before and will be when he is successful. If anyone has been in this situation please tell me how I can talk to him to let him know I am behind him 100% but he needs to be behind his family just as much? Thank you.

Ok--men have inside them a drive to be the provider for there families---and yes this will cause resentment to build, but you have to realize that he wants to do it for you and the kids---He may not realized that he is spending so much time with his work--there has to be balance---a business of your own is a 24/7 job--...

One way to show him support is to get involved with the business. Not only will a family operated business help your financial independence come faster, it will bring the family closer together. Offer to take some calls for him. File some of his accounts for him. Show him you are interested... More
