  • Have you tried to get a job? It may be easier for him to stay home and you to work full time.

  • You go find a job and let him be a SAHD. Or go to the PA office.
    Will family help? Or your Church?

  • Well it is hard for me as well because I have not had a job in over 5 years. We have had help from a church and my family has helped us so much that they are broke themselves. We are getting PA right now but it only helps with food. Thank god I am able to feed my children.

  • Start cutting costs! Cloth diapers are much cheaper. You can always put an ad on craigslist or in the grocery store that you will do house cleaning.

  • I had been a SAHM for 11 years when I left my ex and had to get a job - it doesn't matter how long you've been out of work, fast food places will hire anybody! I agree that it will probably be easier for you to get a job than your dh, you should have known that when you married him.

  • Cut off Internet service.

    Answer by Anonymous at 7:55 PM on Oct. 22, 2009

  • First of all I do not have internet service how the hell would I pay for it? You are real smart. I am not going to shoplift, and I knew he was a felon when I married him and he did have a job His job screwed him now we have nothing. All I wanted was some ideas of what we could do not people being bitches. I am looking for a job as well but nothing is working out for either of us.

  • If you are attractive at all you could be a stripper or escort. If you are not that attractive you could still do both just in the really bad part of town.
