I definitely hear what you are saying, and family comes first of course - but he may be feeling that he needs to do these things to keep, for example, paying the bills? Wildly speculating here.

Continue paying the bills until he found another.
Yes. We are both looking forward to this conference. We've been through a very difficult period in our marriage, nearly ending in divorce. This is part of our recommitting and trying to repair and grow closer.
