Hello Sweetlori38 and Welcome to Mylot! I know that it must be hard for you at this time and your husband nagging you, surely doesn’t make things easier! I feel that you should sit and talk with him, not only to explain to him that finding a job is not easy but to also express to him your frustrations! Although he has been making good money for years now, he should be able to understand that you are both a team! His money is your money is your money and although you may not work at this time you do contribute in many other ways such as, taking care of what is needed in the household! It seems to me like your husband is too hung up on money! Well is that how he is? Although we all need to make money in order to survive the basic necessities in life, money should not shape our lives! The best thing for you to do is express your frustrations and hopefully he will leave you at peace, even if just for a while. No one can pick themselves up right after loosing a job, it is a process that requires patience. There are a few luck ones who find the right job the first time they go out seeking for one, but then there are others who take a little longer. Your husband has to be able to understand that because God forbid he ends up in your situation, would he be able to cope with your nagging? I wish you luck in your job seeking journey and hope that you will find something soon:) Just have faith and you will find happiness!

Actually being a stay home housewife is also a job. And this job is harder. You can't have a holiday, and you have no sick days. It's long lasting work. I think your husband can understand it well and appreciate your efforts.
