I'm pretty sure I may have posted about this a long time ago and if so I apologize for the duplicate topic, but I just need some advice on how to handle my spouse's CONSTANT barking of orders. Please do not get me wrong. I always do my fair share around the house and take the initiative to handle things that come up. What is happening, and has been happening for a long time, is that my spouse constantly asks me to do things. I cannot sit down for a few minutes or do something else that I am working on without hearing her yell my name and then "can you.." or "will you.." or "please do this.." or "I thought you were going to do..." It is getting so annoying. I don't do that to her. Am I a pushover for allowing this to continue? I feel like she's my boss and I'm her employee. I don't feel like marriage should be that way. It's hurting how I feel about her. I brought this up to her the other day to ask her if she was aware that she was doing this. She basically brushed me off. So things continue. I literally spent several hours out in the yard doing some cleanup yesterday and 5 minutes after I come inside to sit down and rest she comes over to where I'm sitting and asked why I was sitting down. Other times when I'm trying to have down time she's coming over saying we need to talk about another vacation. We just took a vacation last month and it nearly broke us. She asks every day and even gets to the point where she says I can't play XBox or watch TV until we have a plan in place. I just don't know what else to do. I feel like if I say no it's going to blow up big time and I'll be sleeping on the couch. Any ideas?
