He is working 6 days a week. He can't do more. You need to step up here. YOU need to make more money.

We have to use credit for our groceries and what we call "errand shopping". You know what being in debt is like. A lot of people are worse off, I'm not going to pretend that we're done for. But we're in deep enough to know what in deep is like. Our marriage is hurting, I bet money is in the reason somewhere.
Thread question: Thing is we don't have the money for marriage counseling. We went to a couple sessions, agreed that it "may" be helping but we can't afford to go back and find out. A long time ago we decided that we need to spend more time together out of the home. Dancing sounds like fun. There are plenty of dance lesson places around here, and it saved the marriage of a good friend of mine. But we don't have money for that, either. So we stay in our home wondering what to do, wondering if we should do it together. And sometimes, it really hurts. So, are there any words of wisdom around? Thanks lots.
