We have been married for more than 10 years with 2 kids.As far I remember my husband hasn't been able to keep a job for more than 3 years. Recently he hasn't even lasted barely a year.Everytime a company lays off people his name is always first on the list. Now he is not getting any younger ..We are at the state of counting pennies while spening.Can't afford to get a house in a decent neighbourhood ,can't afford to send kids to a good school etc. With my meagre earning we can barely live on our money. He has done his engineering from the top 5 college in India and was a brilliant student.In terms of IQ he is in the top 10% even in this country.I have seen his review its always been above expectations and suddenly he gets fired/laid off.I feel he has a big ego ..and his people skills are bad. Something is not working out for him ,,he doesn't want to always have to listen to anyone but I told him whereever he goes he will always have a boss as he is not god.I am tired of his looking for a job over and over again ,the tensions in our life ,the bills having to pay .. In this economy I have to give up any hope of his getting a job. If I say anything to him he will say you leave me since I a failure and go . A relationship is not based on jobs,its based on love and trust and without him I will never be happy .But money is also very important . Otherwise he is a good man and a great father. No matter how much I explain to him he doesn't seem to change.He doesn't want to do a job anymore .I know he has a setback but give me some tips on how to give him hope. I am getting depressed and saying negative things to him all the time but I don't want to but can't help it. For the last 7-8 years he has been laid off/fired from every job.
