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?

I would nip and tuck my finances before I ever entertained an idea like that. I would suggest things like government back debt consolidation, nixing cable, eating out, and other unnesecary expenses.

First of all my husband would never put us in a situation where we would be entertaining the idea of government assistance.  A man that wants to use government assistance to help support his family is not what consider mate worthy.  So to answer your question, I would tell him to step up, or I am better off without him.

We wouldn't qualify for anything even on one income so he would never suggest it. I can't imagine any man suggesting such a thing.
