I'm just about at my wits end here.
It's late and I'm tired and emotional so I am so sorry for the giant emotional wall of text I am going to dump right now.
I have been with my husband for just over 10 years and I am starting to break.
We are old fags, in our 30s, and I've known him for essentially a third of my life. I keep hoping it will get better but I am starting to finally lose hope.
I'm a stubborn asshole. When I want to have someone in my life, I usually do whatever it takes, but for the first time I am really starting to doubt my ability to stay in this relationship. It sucks because if it ends, it is going to be so messy. It's going to be so bad I can honestly say I will never want to date another man again after this.
He recently lost his job due to a really… strange series of events that left him helpless legally. He has been out of work for just over a month, but here's the thing. He is just so depressed he has essentially given up.
I got home today after working my typical 9 hour shift (a busy one at that) and literally filled out job applications FOR him while he watched cartoons.
I would be more understanding if this was a rare thing, but he cannot. hold. a job. Like, ever. Since we started dating when he was young, he was very immature. I helped him out essentially throughout our entire relationship, and embarrassingly enough my family did too at points early on. He has gotten fired from 4 jobs in the last 10 years, 3 instances being his fault.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
