My lovely works like a dog, and has had several setbacks (mainly legal bills, and they are still going to grow until this family court matter is behind us). He wants so desperately to be out of debt, to get the mortgage paid down, and be able to have financial security.
Our divorces were completely devastating, and unlike my ex he willingly provides support to his family- long before any court order was in place- but the combination of our living expenses, his family expenses, and the debt has him furiously working round the clock.
I worry for him, he goes days without more than 3-4 hours of sleep, and worked literally all night from home *sigh*. He is also going back to school... He is going to kill himself if he keeps this up.
How would you suggest/nudge your SO in the direction of rest, without being forceful?

I would sit down with him and go over all of the finances. Make a plan on what can be paid the minimum amount and what needs to be paid the most you can pay. Set a time frame that is reasonable and explain to him that by doing it this way, he can pay down debt and take care of his families without working himself to death. Good Luck!
