I'm in a relationship with my SO. Have been for several years. We have one kid and one on the way. My problem is that I spend a lot of time building up my education, and working through my debt. I work part time for my parents at one job and part time at their other business. Ever since SO got laid off a year ago he only has one part time job. He hasn't even taken the time to look for another in the past 5 months. With a new baby on the way you'd think you'd be in more of a hurry to secure another job or if you couldn't find one, go back to school to try to get better jobs? I just feel like there is no effort on his part to work toward making a better life for our children lately. I'm nearly out of debt and could raise the children myself, and lately I feel like that's what i should be doing. I can't even talk to him about it because he won't sit long enough to discuss it.

I hate ultimatums, but sometimes there is no other option. You need to tell him that he needs to try and get a job before the baby is born. I understand the economy, and I don't know how far along you are, but he needs to at least try. He needs to prove to you and that baby that he is going to help take care of his family no matter what. If he decides that this is too much, then you are going to raise the baby on your own. If you still love him, he can find you after he grows up, BUT you mat realize that you are happier with out him. That's what I found out with my dd's dad. No matter what happens, take care of yourself and good luck. I hope he straightens out, and if not, I hope you ar happy no matter what.
