we are together 24/7

My dh is not working this winter but will start again in the spring I am disabled and cannot how do we live together and be broke at the same time. He wants to watch TV and I want to do other things around the house but end up in his way. When we do have a little money his first thought is beer, well it is not my first thought!
How do I get us out of this rut?

  • My Dh is laid off every winter too buthe does stuff around the house (remodeling type stuff). Could yours do something like that? Could you get a PT job?

  • I could not be married to a man like that. I wouldn't put up with it but you cannot change him or get him out of the rut. He has to grow up all by himself. I'm sorry, I feel for ya, men just take so much longer to mature. I would work and make him watch the kids and tell him if he wants beer money he can get a job.
