My wife is turning 30 and we are short on money as well. She has been getting very depressed. What can I do to bring her out of it?

Forget the money.. Sing to her, Spend time with her, Take walks with her, be roomaaaaaantic to her :). Give her hugs, and kisses, flirt like teens :). That usually cheers any women up when the man they love no matter how old or young still plays and spends time :) . Give her your presence.. that is the greatest gift.

I have depression and I understand what she is going through. The sad thing is that depression affects everyone in the family. What I do when i get depressed is I read a book, take a walk, do something to help clear your head and get perspective. Depression is an illness that sucks.

Have an economy night in. Cook something cheap but delicious, have a bottle of whatever you drank when you were poor students, light candle, sit on the floor and take it in turns to name the free things in life that are great, remember that love is free! It will be ok, tell her its fine, then show her how fine it can be.

Pick a flower, give her a warm hug, and tell her how much you love her and need her.

i dont think it takes alot of money to show someone you love them and are thinking of them..heck make her a homemade card from your heart...buy a bag of her favorite candy and scatter it over the bed..a scented candle..fix her favorite dinner...rent her fav movie...go and buy her an ice cream cone...anything small can mean something big sometimes...and i hope she has a very happy birthday :) and hope she starts feeling better also...
