My hubby & I made approx same salary for 17 years [View all]

I was laid off Oct 11.

I have applied for over 60 jobs since, and there is one good chance 90 minutes from here. I have told him I would take it if offered, as the salary is what I made before.

Tonight he was ranting about expenses, even though we have refinanced the house (dropping the payment from 2k to 500), and cancelled cable. All bills can now be covered on his salary.

Tonight he broughtt up expenses and I said we havebdone all we can, let's wait til January when hiring should pick up to discuss it. He was furious.

He said there's the door.

It was bad. Did he only love me as long as I earned pretty much what he did? 18 years....
