My husband gave me silent treatment for 7 days because I did not answer him when he spoke to me coz I fell asleep. He always does this but it never lasted so long. My daughter was there and even told him I was asleep. Then seven days later he decides to talk to me but still insist I was awake. I made peace for the sake of my 4 children. I am a sahm, so is financially dependent on him. Is a NZ citizen living in Australia so I can’t receive any assistance from the government.
Now he goes on like nothing happened. And I feel depressed and frustrated. What to do?
Have an answer?
Maybe you could start looking for a job once things open up again, or even working online from home. If he won't pay for childcare, butter him up a little "oh babe you work so hard, if I go back to work, I'll be able to take some of the pressure off you". Then take 10-15% of your pay packet and put it aside. Write it off as some kind of tax situation if he gets suspicious.
Regardless, I think you should reach out to a women's shelter, or even a GP, and tell them you'd like to leave him and need advice on what resources you can access. Even if he's not physically abusive, you can still ask for help.
I wish I could give you better advice, I'm sorry you have to put up with this asshole.
