My new husband took a job, (not like the work he is used to) really close to our house. He worked one day and then called in the next and just didn't bother the day after that. What should I do?

  • tell him to get off his lazy butt and go to work or you will leave, my son in law is the same way.

  • Tell him to get out of your house and off to work. What's his problem? How can anyone decide to abandon a job after just one day? Sounds pretty lazy to me.

  • Sounds like he needs to think more about his family and less about himself. Tell him to get up and go to work.

  • well at this point that job is gone. so he has to go find another one. unless he has some kind of valid reason and they know about it. maybe he got fired and didn't tell ya. there are so many more people that are not lazy and would love to have that job that are out of work right now. he is lucky he got job.

  • What can you really do? Maybe he isn't ready to be married?

  • Remind him you have bills to pay and the job market is tight so he better no loose this job.
