How would you handle it if your husband suggested the two of you get divorced so that you could live on public assistance, making the money burdens lighter in your relationship? What would you say or do? I think this question has probably been posed before, sorry if it's being redundant. Opinions, ladies?

Yep exactly the reason out system is broken

Quoting MJP76:

Yeah... That's welfare fraud at its finest.

I'd say no because it's fraud. I would suggest one or both of us working another job, if possible, if it was that bad and money was that tight.

What do you mean? You would leave your husband if he suggested that?

Well, I spoke with him this afternoon and said absolutely not. I think he was disappointed. I just can't do something like that. It takes resources away from people who legitimately need it. I'm applying for other jobs. That's the way I'll be making income, not sitting on my ass and collecting a check, divorcing my spouse and having my sons watching the whole thing. I'll take a pass on that.

Never said I would leave. A person of that kind of character would not be in my life. It's a stupid idea.

Posed before? Seriously? I think that if I was married to a man who was that immoral I would welcome the divorce , move on and find a REAL man to marry.
