Before, my husband's income is not much. But he had much time to go fishing or going to coffee bar. Now, he can earn much more than before. But he must work very much. He usually feels tired and stress. I feel poor him. I want him always happy and healthy. But our life need money to care our parents and family. What could I do for him?

The easiest and the most direct way for you to help your husband is to earn more money yourself so that he does not need to stress too much. But we all know that working hard will never kill a person. It is the hobbies and the leisure activities that are mare damaging than work itself.

Maybe I should look for a part time job? I can have time to care my husband if I also work much like him?

You are right when money is more then tiredness is also more and not time for anything. I always trust on enough income but enjoy life because when we go near the God we cant go with money. So only for wearing cloth, eating and staying good life income but not run behind money money and money. My husband income is less but at least they spend some time with us.

I see. But my parents-in-law need money for their debts and their health. So, my husband must work much. He doesn't have any choice. I understand him. So, I feel poor him and love him much more.

Money is really important nowadays, I hope not but it is. What you can do to make him feel good and relax is to always prepare healthy dishes. Give him a massage once in a while. Always listen to him, sometimes stress is not only cause by physical exhaustion but does include emotional one. Just be there for him always.

That's the price of getting a higher salary. The more you earn, the more you're required to work. I don't think you can do anything to stretch his time. I guess all you can do is manage the house. Do the cooking, watch the kids, y'know.. be a good wife.

Maybe you're right. I try to finish all housework in order that he can feel comfortable to work and he won't worry about me.

Be a shoulder that he can leans on and find comfort after a long day work. A good ears to hears him out and cook for him his favorite meal. Don't worry too much, I believe your husband can handle it as time goes by. Tell him to stay happy and fill it with hope!

Optimistic is a good way. Thank you for your sharing. I think that you're a husband, too?

good day to you, with regard to your post, perhaps, you can lend a help to him by having an extra way on how to earn. in that way, you and your husband can help each other to get more earnings.

You're right. However, I can do anything at present. I'm an office staff. I can't earn much more outside my salary.

no pain no gain that;s the rule I'm a husband; it's already like finding water in the middle of desert; whenever I come home from a rough day at work, to see my children are happy at home; and of course it's like a "touchdown" to meet my sweet smiling wife.

So, I should try to smile and gentle with him, right? I always try to do all housework before he goes at home.

Working life is like that. Higher Pay higher stress. Nevertheless, hope that he will familiarise with his work and have good colleagues that are cooperative and work hand in hand to lessen the burden. Pray for him and hope for the best. Always bring joy to him when he is back from work so that he can find comfort at home.

Making more money surely means having to spend less than with your self or your family. And since most of us are in need of money to be able to bring home something on the table everynight, we must show our love and support to our husbands. Tell your husband that you do appreciate everything that he has done and has been doing for your family. And assure him that even though you spend time less, you will give him the quality time that he needs.
