    My husband Roger is a selfish person. For one thing, he refuses to moov out of the city, even tough it is a bad place to rise the children. We inherited some moneys when my parents died, and it migt be enough for a down payment on a small house in a nearby town but Roger says he would misse his friends in the neighbourhoud. Also Roger allways spends any budget money that is leave over. Only a week ago, he spent the money left for the kids ' college to buy the latest Cadillac sports car. He spent the rest of the money on a luxury house in the mountains knowing perfectly well that I and the children get sik when we are in the mountains. Another example of Roger ' s selfishnesse is that he leaves all the work of care for the children to me. He never brings they to school or brings them back home. I remember the day our children were perform in Snow White at school. Roger didn ' t come to see them. Instead, he went hikking in Colorado with Karine once of his female friends. He never helps them do their homework, he watches soccer insted. And when it ' s bedtime and the kids want him to read them a story, he goes to his office and spends all his time on telephone making noise and preventing the kids from felling asleep. Finally, when we go on vacation, we always go where Roger wants to go. Last summer, he brought us to Las Vegas for a weekend because his last single friend was having a bachelor party. I spent the entier weekend in a hotel room with the kids. I still can ' t believe that he preferred Las Vegas to the Palm Coast of Florida where I wanted to go because our son had to participate as a finalist in a national spelling contest. We will never know if he would have won. Roger is the most selfish person I have ever meet. I just regret I didn ' t find out about his selfishness before marrying him.
