OP, what kind of job did your husband have? If I may ask.

I wonder if he was threatened/bribed to accept or decline things and it got out of hand which lead to getting caught. Which then lead to being forced to resign.

Bee, please don’t let him walk over you. You’re better than that. You’re a working mother and a business woman, no doubt you’re a smart cookie. I realize you want him to see you as a supporting wife, but he’s not going to respect you if you don’t respect yourself. Right now, you owe it to yourself to get to the bottom of this or give him consequences for his actions.

He messed up somehow and was told to resign or be fired. Call his bluff and say “you should talk to a lawyer, the reason they fired you sounds totally unfair blah blah and tell him to request his personnel file. And report back as to his response.

His whole situation seems really odd.

Strange that he never mentioned being down at work or his thoughts about quitting prior to doing so. Crazy that he didn’t communicate these issues before leaving the workplace. So many loose ends.

I get that you want to be supportive and understanding because I am the same. At the same time the way he is going about moving forward seems a bit selfish, I feel like he isn’t giving you much of a say in how the two of you move forward from this which is just strange. Something seems off here.

I would ask questions and be more assertive in getting answers..

If he wants to come work for you, you have every right as his potential employer to call his previous manager and ask for a reference and discuss the circumstances of his departure.
