My husband and I have been together for 8 years married for over 4 and he lost his job back in February of last year! His dad died back in Dec 2011 so he started missing work due to emotional issues and his boss let him go but he collected EI and gave me every dime well now his EI has run out and he still has no job but he has over 5 grand in savings! Since his dad died he feels now he is getting older and wants to finish things on his “bucket list”! one of those things is writing a novel, he has over 100 pages so far and seems to be very dedicated to it! He told me he has enough to pay for his share of bills till around April or May and if his novel fails he will get a job A.S.A.P only problem is I am 33 and want to start a family but will only do that if he has a secure job and income! Would you be ok with this? The house is only in MY name, my parents’ helped me buy it and we have a pre-nup so if we break up he won’t be entitled to the house! Would you let him wait until April or May to get a job because he will be still paying his share of bills? Would you give him an ultimatium because of my age? I told him he has until Jan 31st to get a job and he doesn’t seem to want to look and he says he is not afraid to be on his own! I told him if he doesn’t get a job by then I will have to call my lawyer and get a seperation agreement! Am I being unreasonable? I think he is depressed since his dad died but now I am despressed because of this situation!
