| | Re: Unemployed husband and Iím depressed
I wish I had more to tell you other then you aren't alone. My wife and I had the same issue. She quit her job back in Feb and hasn't worked since. Part of that is my fault. She goes to college and I wanted her to focus on that but it wasn't long before the bills started out growing my paycheck. I told her she need to find a part time job. 2 months later and she hadn't found one. She surfs Monster.com and thinks that the same as looking for a job. Needless to say it put such a strain on me I couldn't handle it. The stress of paying for everything while she sat home all day was too much for me to handle and I asked her to move out. In fact this very minute she is home moving her stuff out. Granted it wasn't all because of her lack of job. There were a lot more problems in the relationship then that. But no doubt the stress over these last few months were a big part of it.
The one thing I learned through all this is marriage is a team effort. No one can hold it together alone. If he's not helping you then maybe you need to look at the bigger picture. Why isn't he?
