My best friend's husband got fired from his job, not laid off, but flat out fired because he totally screwed up and cost the company about $10K. That was 6mos ago. He hasn't worked a day since then, nor has he even TRIED to find another job. Instead, he lays on the couch playing video games, eating junk, drinking beer, and bitching about how tired he is that the house is always dirty, the three kids are loud and in the way, and how she doesn't ever want to have sex anymore. He's gained about 20lbs since he was fired, too, and seldom showers. He's just gross in both looks and attitude. For some reason, though, my friend just keeps letting him do this. She works as a nurse with super long shifts and crazy hours and if the kids aren't at school or daycare, they're with a sitter. Her husband does absolutely nothing.
Would you put up with YOUR SO being a lazy bum like this, treating you like crap, and making your life miserable?
