TRUE CONFESSION: I'm Sick Of My Unemployed Husband

People have a lot of opinions about money.

In our “Money Mic” series, we hand over the podium to someone with a strong opinion on a financial topic. These are their views, not ours, but we welcome your responses.

Today, one woman discusses her deep misgivings about her marriage, why she resents being the sole breadwinner and how her dynamic with her husband affects their kids.

Money is emotional and sensitive, so please respect that each person makes individual choices. For things you can do in a similar situation to strengthen your relationships and talk about money, keep reading.

I can’t even remember when my husband stopped working.

And frankly, I don’t have time to think about it, between my full-time job and my fledgling business, volunteering at an after-school program to help teenagers prepare for the professional world and mothering two children.

But when I do think about it–when I think about all the times I come home to see evidence of his entire day’s activities cluttering the coffee table, or when I have to take our shared car to work and strand him at home because he doesn’t feel like getting up to drive me–I’m angry.

Why should he get everything, when I do everything? Read more....

  4. Put your pants on Ms. cry baby and support your family. Men have done this forever. Equality means time for you to stfu and deal with it. At least you don't have to worry about raising the mail man's babies.

    1. Really? Really?...shame on you please spare me. Men are babies, they want to have the milk, the cow and everything else. Then they want to be lazy! So, we are suppose to populate the earth, take care of HIS unwanted needs, cook, clean, deal with homework, teachers your growing children's emotional needs and what exactly are men/husbands suppose to do? what use have you if you can't provide?

    2. And what use are you if you eventually can't have children, sag and get ugly as you age. Cunt gutter-slut bitch whores like these are the reason why men should never marry. A maid and a prostitute are cheaper.

  6. Looks like there are alot of deadbeat husbands out there.

  7. Deadbeat husbands have a lot of time to surf the web and express their rage. It is unacceptable that the husband refuses to show his wife his paycheck. The couple needs counseling, and if that doesn't work, a divorce. Life is too short to live with a dishonest narcissist.

  8. If he is not working, he at least should be studying something to get a better job in the future while she works...

  9. I am in the same boat so I sympathize completely. I am tired of hearing the economy, the employer, the City is the reason he 'cant' work. I have always worked and will continue to, but when I have the flu AND go to work, board meetings, City Council meetings, and come home and still have to do the dishes and he is still in his bathrobe, crap needs to change. This isn't an equal rights thing, this is about a household raising a family and that responsibility shouldn't be put solely on one partner, male or female. Get off your ass and contribute.
