Soooo my DH has been very frustrated with his job the last few months, he has taken some time off to give himself a break and relief, but when he goes back the frustation returns, I think him and his boss have not been seeing eye to eye lately. My DH has worked for his company for almost 12yrs and is salaried mgmt. He told me today that he has been thinking for a long time he may want to change companies, I was a little taken aback by this because I always thought he was happy with his job for the most part, i mean he has some bad days but he has always worked it out and went to work.
This time it seems different though I think he wants to leave for good, he asked me this evening to start researching online for new positions, I am not sure how to feel about this for several reasons 1. I am a SAHM with an 11 yr old and 4yr old 2. We are also about to build a home and it would be quite risky for him to change jobs at this time it would not look good to our lender. 3. My husband has only a two yr degree he literally worked his way up in his job he could probably find a similiar position and be hired he is a great employee and gives 100% but he may not like the new job much better, so the stability will be lost.
I am not sure how to address this situation with him, I dont want to come off being selfish as if I am only concerned about me staying home it is more than that this set up works great for us and he knows it, we both were really excited about the house and I just think he may regret it, but I dont want him to think I am not concerned about him, his stress level or not supportive of his choices!! I want to stand behind him but at our age I just think it would be scary to kind of start over on the other hand it could be the best thing that ever happened to us, so confused!!!. What would you do?
