Our expert says:
It's probably just as well you didn't mention how much you are charging for the irresistible range of services you provide ; I suspect many readers, men and women, would be tempted to hire you, if they could. And surely your husband was joking, really clumsily, when he asked what you do all day : if he genuinely hadn't found that wholly obvious, he couldn't have enough common sense to hold down his current or previous job.
Maybe he's really tone-deaf on such issues : finding any of your actions "cute" is as patronizing as patting you on the head like a dog. Of course wives shouldn't be expected to be unpaid multi-tasking staff.
Costing your contributions properly would be a complex task. If you could get your old job back, would he be happy to give up his current work, and stay at home and do everything you currently do ? Hardly likely.
The question isn't is it WRONG of you to bill him for all your household labours, but rather : is it useful ? Maybe the gesture dramatized and illustrated your point, but is the issue really about exchanging bills and arguing about a pay rise, maybe going on strike ? Isn't it likely that the best resolution of all the issues raised here, will still need to be from calm, frank, sincere discussion between you ?
