What does your husband do and how much does he get paid?

I hate my husbands job and he only gets paid $40,000 for fixing gym equipment. He travels gym to gym and meets different people. Then he comes home and brags about how great people look in the gym while I'm stuck at home with 3 small kids :(

  • He does me and gets paid quite well.


    Seriously, he is paid as my caregiver due to being disabled in a car accident three years ago. He also works part time as a cook in order to get out of the house a bit.... He really is paid quite well.

  • You should be happy with the 40grand he is making. I never made that working full time, with a bachelors degree!!!! And my hubby doesn't make that now, not even close. Why do you hate his job, you aren't the one working it. Not to be a bitch, but be happy he has a job and likes his job. He could be a lazy ass and bitch about working all the time or not have a job at all. If you are upset about how he is talking about other peoples bodies, if that is what you mean, then explain that to him.

  • My husband works in IT and makes 55K a year. That's pretty low for the job he does, but he's been with the company doing different roles for 12 years and it's worth it to have stable employment right now.

  • Really not cool to tell you how great OTHER people look! But many right now have no job. Thinking about everything you have to be thankful for, even the smallest thing may lift your spirits!!!
