I am considering taking a second job and DH says it's all about me being away from our kids as much as possible. I am trying to tell him is so we can catch up and afford Christmas, and have a little cushion but all he sees is that he will " have to watch the kids" more while I am gone. Kids are 2 and 7 (2 teenagers also, but they aren't factors in his thinking).
The job would be part time in addition to my full time job. It would require 8 hours on Sundays and 4 on Wednesdays after my fulltime job. I wouldn't see the little kids at all on Wednesdays. I hate the thought of missing a full day with them, but we could use the money. I could earn almost his income with this part time job alone. I've thought about suggesting he quit his job, but I dont know how that will go over.
His position now is "take the job, everyone always fucks me over anyway". He is very woe is me about everything lately and I'm sure he is depressed. Its been a rough few years for him regarding work and I know it hurts him that I make more than he does. He wont talk to anyone and literally makes himself sick stressing out over it.
Should I take the job?
