Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

He needs to get his act together

We have been trying to get ourselves out of being poor for a while now. I now have a really good job and he has a pretty good job. He can't stand his job because his dept is a mess though. We worked part time each for a long time to try to go to school and get ourselves out. Now that we both have FT jobs, he is making noise about going back to working PT and how we'll be "okay". Yeah if 125 a month as a buffer and to try to save with is "okay". I'm not going back to that shit.

He either gets his shit together or I'm done. He is 30 years old and this is fucking ridiculous. He has job hopped almost our entire relationship. It was fine when we were running around like chickens with our heads cut off because we got pregnant and didn't what the hell we were doing. But I'm sorry. I can't take it anymore. I want a stable relationship and a stable home. I want a husband who acts like a fucking adult. I know his mom & stepdad never held down jobs and when they did work, it wasn't full-time. But that's no excuse.

We all have issues at our jobs. But you suck it up and take care of your family. I'm going to be having this discussion with him when he gets home. He has an interview next week for a job that's FT and pays decent. I hope he gets it because I can't take this crap anymore.

 I would be so mad too. It is time for him to grow up, be an adult and take care of his family. Why would he want to constantly struggle to get by when he is able to make more money working full time. Makes no sense. I hope everything works out for you.

You have every reason to feel the way you do. Have you expressed all this to him though and if se what is his response? Hopefully he can land a good job and hold onto it. Good luck :)

That's why I left my ex fiancé. No stability. At all.

Good luck honey.
