I am no longer working, I am now a part-time student and a SAHM. When I did work though, it was just that: work. My husband used to love his job, but he's been complaining more and more that he is unhappy. Obviously, this is not the right time for him to change jobs since they are not easy to come by and he knows that, so he's been putting up with it. It is seriously affecting our home life though. I notice he has much less patience than usual, he's aloof and "tired" all the time, and he is always negative about everything. I never liked working and being away from my kids when I was and I did hate going every day. I never let it affect me at home though. I know it's a stereotype that careers kind of "define" a man though, so do you think it could be making him that unhappy that he's in some kind of depression or something?

Why can't he look for another job? It is never a bad time to see what else is out there. There are great tips in the CafeMom Job Hunting Moms group: http://www.cafemom.com/group/102837
