After reading your post I went and asked my hubby if he would feel emasculated or insignificant at any time... he assured me he wouldn't. I then told him to let me know if something does bother him. I did explain to him though that yes I've felt worthless and depressed, a bit trapped, ect since before i met him i was so used to being the provider(for my mother and sisters). He does understand how i feel and another factor for my decisions is that we do need the extra income. This has been and is an ongoing discussion with my hubby and yes he had expressed at one point that the thought made him feel a bit insignificant because he felt he was suppose to be the provider. Perhaps you just need to have a serious conversation with your hubby about this? Ask him how he truly feels? It may be that he.. like my hubby... feels that he is suppose to be the provider and take care of his family. Of course I did point out to hubby that with the way things are... and with three kids.. one income isn't going to be enough and he does understand that. I also assured my own hubby that i didn't think less of him nor would i. Perhaps yours may need reassuring? Maybe do some things such as massage his feet, bake him a pie or make him a meal or something to show him that yes you still see him as a man?
