I will be honest I didn’t read the whole post but from what I did read sorry to say your husband needs to put on his big boy pants…. it’s called a job not a hobby for a reason. Most people don’t love going to work but they need to support themselves.

Good luck bee !

This man does not seem ready to help you build a life. I think you need to talk seriously with him about how his actions affect you as a family, about your goals and what his plan is. Tell him how much stress he’s putting you under. This is such a crappy situation and I wouldn’t have much patience for it… But then again, I’ve had a job since I was 15. So maybe I just don’t understand….

I’d be pissed for sure! He needs to stay at his current new job until he finds another one. That’s the only plan I’d be okay with.

I read it all!  I am… I don’t really know what to say. You don’t mention how old you guys are but the fact that you’re already married makes it harder. Honestly if you weren’t already tied together I would have said run run run but since that’s not so easy. I wish I knew what to tell you.

Everything about this is bad news.

I am assuming you knew about his laziness regarding work before you married him. Why then, would you expect that he would change after marriage?

There are many young people with a college degree asking “Would you like fries with that”. He’s certainly not the only person with a college degree who has to take whatever work they can find.

If he doesn’t like this job, he can look for another one- on his time off.  He’s not a baby. he is a married man- time to start acting like one.

Well, I read your whole post and I dont understand why you are with this guy. Im sorry if I sound harsh. It is okay that he wants to quit the new job. However, he has to find another full time job instead of playing video games? You said he just graduated, what is his major? What kind of job is he looking for? If he gets upset just because he had to park on the street, I can not immagine how your relationship is going to be when you both face obstacles in life.

On the one hand he does need to grow up and get working rather than being a layabout. On the other hand I don’t blame him for hating factory work. 

True story. I worked at both Tim Hortons and at a factory during my uni days. I lasted 2+ yrs at Tims (it wasn’t great but it paid the bills) and all of one shift in a factory. It was the 8pm to 8am shift working in a place that produces paintballs. I had to take huge, heavy trays of these balls out from stacked shelves and examine each paintball for leaks, seams that were not properly coming together etc. These paintballs were super bright fluorescent colours and by the end of the shift it felt like I had crashed and burned from a major drug high or something cause my vision took all the next day to sort out! I quit the next day.

Point of my story is that factory work is repetitive and can be very boring. I guess you need to ask him if he’s just being incredibly lazy or he genuinely hates it.

anon0668248:  how long have you guys been married? I can’t imagine marrying someone who you describe as “a very spoiled child.” What exactly is his field? I can understand why he wouldn’t be thrilled with working in a factory when he has a college degree, but since he has zero other options, it’s not like he really has a choice.
