Hi firebirdlizant, if that's the situation, might think of start own business, not necessary for big business but start from something that small would help. The important is previously already have a good job, thus if spouse is still capable, then he/she would be able to got that again, thus why not using the time try to start something first. Who knows may be the business will change yours life and both couple have to work together to for the business instead of still working for people.

it relates my situation for my husband is almost 5 years having no permanent job, he applied different companies many times but they always said that he is over qualify. and he losses his faith to find a job to support the financial. we decided to go domestic for we think that will be the best to solve our problem but then we fail because the person who offered him will not help us.

I guess we might both have to get second jobs and start budgeting and really watching our money. We could also probably rent a room out of our house to someone for extra money each month. I'm not sure -- hopefully I will never be in this position! Best wishes.
