My DH graduated with his Bachelor's in December. We've been applying for jobs all over the country since October and were only able to find this dead-end job in a call center making barely over min. wage. He is a good man and is really good to me and our two little ones, but I am so frustrated and disappointed in him. Since January or before I have been the only one researching jobs and applying. He isn't doing anything except looking into joining the military. Really? Like somehow having him gone all the time and in harm's way is going to make things better.! He is not interested in going back to school for his Master's, but that's pretty much our only option at this point.
I am going to school online to finish my bachelor's and I'm about to start a very rigorous semester of 18 credits. I really need him to take over the job applying and he said he's sorry that he's such a disappointment. He told me that he loves me and he's just so sorry that he's been lazy and he'll try to do better. My fears are that he might do better than he's been doing, but it won't be enough. I realize the economy is really bad right now and it won't matter who is applying for jobs if the calls aren't coming.
To top it all off two close friends just got jobs within 2 weeks of graduation and are already working at top companies making at least 3 times what DH brings home. I'm just so frustrated with him and annoyed that nothing has been working out for us. Not a question I guess, just a rant and a vent.
