| | Husband Won't Earn and Says he is depressed
We have been married for 22 years. In that time, husband has earned enough to lift burden of me supporting fully our three children for about 3 years. He built up huge debts, which I finally managed to reduce by selling our house and buying in cheaper area hoping this would give him a fresh start. His behaviour was so poor that I thought he might be depressed and he went to doctor. Got diagnosis. Nothing changed, he still messes around the house all day. I have had a lot of job stress myself having been made redundant twice and am currently freelancing and running out of money. He refuses to find work, and does none of the things that might get him work like take a course. I am utterly sick of him, can't bear him to touch me, and it has badly affected my children. You might well ask why I stayed for so long, well children and lack of any family support are the answers to that.
Anyone have any ideas?
