I am so sorry, being broke and living with your parents is never fun, let alon for newlyweds.  Has your husband thought about going full time reserves, national guard, or active duty?  It might be a great option for you seeing as he has already been through all the hurdles.

I’m sorry that you are going through this. Financial problems are one of the worse things for a couple to bear in their marriage. With this economy, I haven’t heard of a single couple who hadn’t had a rough time. I’m in school getting my teaching credential and currently unemployed. Even though I love this profession, I know that I’m not going to be able to land a job soon. My husband’s entire department has been laid off and he’s the only one left. We live paycheck to paycheck and we hope and pray that things get better. I’m not writing this response for you to read about my problems but for you to know that you don’t have to feel like this. Is not your fault and this too shall pass. I hope everything works out for the best and remember that you may not have much, but you have each other.

I’m sorry you and your new husband are going through this. I had to re-read your post and I am still not understanding one thing. You wrote that your husband was deployed but was laid off from work shortly after he returned. He was laid off from the military? I didn’t know that could happen. Did I misunderstand what your wrote?

I agree with tksjewelry about him going into the reserves, national guard or avtive duty. Is this possible? If a minimum wage job is out of the question what kind of job did you have after high school? Could you apply at that company again? If you and your husband are in school is there any jobs at school? What kind of skills do you have? Could you use your skills to do something from home? I know I have a lot of questions but I’d like to help you and need to know more info so I can.

@anonymous3321: Oh wow I am so sorry. I really feel sympathetic! After I graduated college in May of 2010 I was unemployed for nearly 8 months. I finally was hired back at the company I had worked for before, only to be offered a temporary job in my field of study (graphic design). I thought it would be wise to take the temporary position as it was in my field. It was a 4 month position, and at the end, I was unable to get hired back at the previous company because they had already filled the position with their DAUGHTER. 🙁 I was then unemployed again for over 6 months! I finally have got a job though doing what I love in my field. I hope there is light at the end of the tunnel for you two – you deserve a break! I can tell you it got better for me (eventually) after graduation from college. Best wishes!
