It definitely sounds like he has some needs that aren't being met. Do you go out with dates with your husband or is that just reserved for the bf and the husband just gets boring home stuff? Sit down with your husband and have some serious talks about HIS needs. Work out a new schedule, based on the current situation (this may have to change each month). As I read it, you expect the time with bf to stay the same and it's your husband that must make all the sacrifices when school, work, family or anything else gets in the way - that's extremely selfish on you and your bf's part.
I've agreed to the week-long break. I've talked with my husband to meet his needs better, too. My bf and I probably still have some residual NRE to get over, and I do need to consider my husband's needs more. I just thought I was doing so well...I guess I just got frustrated.
