Why not get a minimum wage job… better than no job at all.

@weightwatchers152:  Could you try working for a tutoring company?  Like a Sylvan Learning Centre?  I know they only hire certified teachers (here in Canada).  That might get you more hours in any case, and you’d be doing something you already know how to do!

As long as you guys are in open communication about your finances and goals, staying home shouldn’t be something shameful! Enjoy this time before your engagment and marriage.

If you feel like you need to be doing something for yourself, then go out and work anywhere, even if its part time to give yourself some freedom and esteem.

Also volunteering is a great idea to get out of the house 😉

I just went through your frustration as Fi was unemployed for about a year. easier said than done but enjoy your leisure time, your education will not go to waste. Really no teaching jobs within traveling distance? wow! Our district has such high turnover it’s sad. What about looking into working with kids in another capacity, like being a director of an after school program? I worked many part time jobs with kids before I realized I wanted to be a teacher. Having your credentials and M.A. would make you a desried candidate. I understand it is SO much easier said than done though.
