Am i the only one struggling financially with my spouse?
I've been married 2 years. My husband in that time has worked 2 months at burger king and 3 months at bass pro shop. He quit burger king because I told him to because he was miserable and I thought he could do better. He was fired from bass pro for downsizing reasons. He was denied being able to join the military. He says he's going to try the police academy now. I'm in the military and tired of doing all the supporting financially. Am I the only one going through this.

You married a loser, why did you think he would change? "I told him to quit burger king", jeez the guy cant even THINK for himself.

No, you aren't the only one. Whoever got my ex fiance when I dumped him after 3 years and him only working 2 months of that time is going through the same thing right now.

The police academy sounds like a great idea. It will be a stable job with benefits, etc, you should encourage him to do this. It is at least something that he can settle down into so he doesn't keep bouncing around in meaningless jobs.

The man is supposed to support the family. He should be doing that. The thing is that the economy is very hard in these days. When you married him I'm sure you knew what was up, and you married him anyways. Therefore (I hope you are not thinking of divorce) you have no excuse to divorce him. Make him get a job... More

And was he doing something better before you got married? Or did you think his employment status would magically change after he said "i do"? You married him obviously because you accepted him at face value before marriage.... don't expect someone to magically change after the wedding. It usually doesn't happen.
