Been with my hubby for going on 14 years,we have 2 kids 11 &3.I work full time outside of the home and my husband has been out of work the past 3 years. We struggle constantly to keep up with our bills with only one income. My job is stressful and I would rather be home more with my kids but thats just not possible with only one income. My problem is not only having to support everyone but my husband thinks I am a horrible person basically, he says my "comments" and opinions are simalr to people he hates. He wont look me in the eyes,lies to me,barely says I love you, and refuses to have anymore children, and refuses to go to counseling also. After 3 years of trying to keep us a float alone, it is difficult not to nag him about finding work. I really dont believe in giving up on our marriage, but logically I dont understand why I would not. Any advise?? ThanksAnswer Question

He is probably depressed. The man is wired to think he has to be the bread winner and to support his family. The fact that he is not doing it and you are is probably causing resentment. He is probably feeling inadequate and so you are getting the anger. My SO was out of work for 8 months but we were both open about the exact feelings and these are things he WAS feeling. I was feeling jealous because he was doing what I wanted to do and I was doing what he wanted to do so he was angry with me.

Does anyone else out there have a child that has a heart condition?
