Almost 6 months ago, my husband took a lower paying job (40% paycut) because he didn't like his job. He had a job working for a medium sized city and had a specialized position that paid well and he had quite a bit of autonomy there. For over 7 years I listened to him complain about his job and I was tired of feeling guilty about him hating his job in order to support us.
Ever since he did this, we can't afford to pay our bills. I'm so stressed all the time as it is and now I will need to work full time as opposed to my 24 hours per week that I have been working. :mad:
Also, ever since he did this I've noticed that he seems way less stressed and I am way more stressed. He, however, does not take note of this- he is oblivious as in many things tied to emotions. What's done is done but I don't feel the same way about him- I think a job change is great if that's what he needed for his mental and physical health. But I'm so irritated that he didn't seem to think 40% would be this bad even though I told him that it would. Now that I'm going to spend less time at home with out kids- I'm even MORE irritated that it still doesn't seem to be sinking in. I'm bearing the consequence of his choice and I'm pretty dissatisfied about that. I want to just go on being bitter, and I'd even like to ask him for my own bedroom. I don't know where to go from here.:shrug:
