[ - ] I worked two jobs for almost two years to build up savings, so I could take a year off work to volunteer with a local project but still be able to pay my half of the bills. DH's business is underperforming, so after he pays his half of the bills, he doesn't have any money to do anything else. When I realized I might not be able to count on him to pay his half, I picked up a couple of days/week of temp work, as my own safety net. Now he keeps asking if each temp job might go permanent, and whether I'm looking for full time work yet. Divorce? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

^And by "DH's business is underperforming", I really mean "DH is underperforming". He only puts in the bare minimum required to keep it running, so he can tell people "I don't work for someone else, I work for myself, I built my own company". [ Reply | More ]

I don't understand why he would be asking that. Did he not understand your plan? You need to be on the same page, but if you aren't, that doesn't mean you have to divorce him. It means you need to work on your communication skills, and talk more about what your marriage needs from each one of you in order to stay in a healthy place. When he asks you that question, what do you say? Do you explain things to him like you just explained them to us? If not, maybe you should try. [ Reply | More ]
