I am at my witts ends here. My DH is unemployed, we have NO money. We are starting our own business, and he won't do the anything except play games online. I can't trust him to take care of the kids, because he is unattentive, and I have NO money to send them to daycare. When the business starts, I have to work all day and answer the phone, so getting a 3rd shift or 2nd shift job is out of the question. He did get an ecommerce account yesterday for the business, but thats it. We have been told to get out from the relatives we are living with, and I just don't know what to do, because I am pretty much the sole caregiver to my kids. I don't know if I should leave or not, and if I do my family is a good distance away. I just don't know if there is any hope left.

Sounds to me like you are doing it alone so why add his laziness to your already overloaded schedule. You would be ridding yourself of your greatest annoyance thereby making your life much less stressful. He either needs to contribute or leave. Give him a list of what is absolutely expected from him and make it clear he either does it or he's gone. Personally I'd just boot him now. Good luck with your business, hope it gets off the ground and is hugely successful.

I am so sorry you are going through this, you must feel so frustrated. Your husband needs to get a job until the business starts. Your with family and your husband is being non productive. If you were living with me I would kick your husband out and allow you and the kids to stay. You really need to have a serious talk with your d/h and hide his video games.
