Re: My husband moved back home and I'm in pieces.
I couldn't live under my wife like that either. I wouldn't feel like a man.
I'm with you. And I wouldn't accept an able-bodied man playing 'housewife' and being happy to let ME support him because he's too damned lazy to finish his schooling so he CAN work in his field.
But more so, he didn't even entertain the thought of working somewhere else just to contribute to the household and instead, made sure he had 'friends' to hang out with so he wasn't bored.
He sounds like an unmotivated 17 year old teenage kid who just wanted his mommy to support him.
OP, he chose to go back to California because he didn't like his new life on the East Coast. He didn't do it for the schooling because it was available to him where you live now, it would have just required some extra effort that he wasn't
willing to expend (but he had all the time in the world to hang out with his new friends).
I highly doubt he'll ever move back. I really do.
