As a man I can tell you we can be self-destructive and also inflict pain on a loved one to try to make us feel better. Since we are falling a pit of crap, we often want our spouses or partner to fall in with us. The problem is we are so blinded by the problem(S) we face, we don't see the hand that is extended trying to pull us out. You have every reason to be dissappointed and upset. He sounds like a good man and needs to stand-up, dust himself off and go at it again. It's not over until you are being lowered 6 feet in the ground. He needs to know that he is not alone and when he feels that way, all he needs to do is look to the right and see his wonderful wife standing there...You two need stand tall, look each other in the eyes then look at that storm and run straight into together hand-in-hand...In the long run, he will remember your loyalty and remember it was you that believed in him. Beside everygood man is an even better woman!
Other than this, if it is that bad, definilty seek a Doctor. I think he is fine and needs to, I hate to say it, man-up. I am having a similar problem and am having to do a little readjusting myself. Good Luck STTA
