Sorry to hear this. How stressful!!

Maybe FH could take a temp job just to have something coming in for now?  Maybe at a place that doesn’t suck TOO much.  Like Costco (I LOVED working there!) or maybe he could apply with a temp agency for some temp work? There are all types of temp jobs from office clerk to roofer.

I’m so sorry. How stressful! I don’t have any good advice, but just keep your head up, support each other and ride the rough time out. You WILL find something!

I understand exactly what you are going threw… my fiance and I lost our jobs the same day. I never quit without another job lined up but I couldn’t take it anymore and put my 2 weeks notice in, only to come home and find out my fiance lost his job. Its been about a month and a half and i am beyond stressed. I have been babysitting and doing promotional events on the weekends and he gets unemployement, so we get by. We have to book are venues and they require have down and a security deposit. I’m hoping one of us finds something soon or we won’t have a place to get married! The only advice I can offer is look on craigslist for odd jobs till you can find a job and cut back as much as you can.

Good luck!

@the futuremrslamkin: I feel your pain.  FI has been out of work for MONTHS (actually, since January) and I’ve been paying for everything.  EVERYTHING. It’s painful, but you’ll get through it.  Maybe HE could take a serving job or something?  That way, you’d keep your unemployment?  I don’t know what to tell you, other than (((HUGS))) … just keep cranking out those resumes.  Good luck!
