My cousin got married a few years ago. She gave birth to a baby boy last year. After that, she has been looking after her baby and doing the vast majority housework at home. Her husband only takes the responsibility of giving financial support to the family. He always tells my cousin that he's truly exhausted after a whole day's work. So he needs to relax in the evenings. There's nothing much my cousin can do to change the attitude of her husband, because she and her baby probably won't have enough money to survive without him. Such dilemma makes her feel helpless and miserable. (Could you please correct my English?)

My cousin got married a few years ago. She gave birth to a baby boy last year. After that, she has been looking after her baby and doing the vast majority of the housework at home. Her husband just ('only' also works, but 'just' gives a bit more emotion to the fact he only works. It makes it sound a bit more frustrated, which fits the mood.) takes the responsibility of giving financial support to the family and not much else (once again, adding this little bit of feeling takes this completely good sentence, and makes it GREAT!). He always tells my cousin that he's truly exhausted after a whole day's work, so he needs to relax in the evenings. ('Truly exhausted' is perfect! Nice!) There's nothing much my cousin can do to change the attitude of her husband, because she and her baby probably won't have enough money to survive without him. Such a dilemma makes her feel helpless and miserable.
You're english may be better than you think! I understood the whole thing, so you have clearly come a long way to get here. I think just a bit of study on different ways to add extra emotion would take you to the next level. Great job, see ya!
