It is rarely wise for a divorced couple to re-marry without working through couples counselling to be sure they have dealt with all the issues that contributed towards the original divorce.
You seem to be saying that this guy was never comfortable or skilled at talking about emotional issues - men often find this difficult. Counselling can help.
Its fair to expect him to work with you AT HOME, to deal with personal and family issues. I don't, however feel that it is fair to expect people to interrupt their working day for phone-calls or to respond to SMS about non-emergency and emotional issues - they're AT WORK, and should not be expected to stop work to respond to personal messages if the home is no actually burning down. You mention that you also work, but someone working properly in a real job, really doesn't have the time for this indulgence.
And you admit he has financial problems ( an independent contractor in these difficult times is likely to have such problems ) - and it isn't helpful to be cynical about this - he may be really good at hat he does, and may work hard at that - but like many independent business folks, he may not have the financial skills to ensure he gets properly paid for the work he does. Sounds like he's working as hard as he can to try to improve his finances - but maybe he needs some good BUSINESS advice to ensure he gets properly paid, and should stop work on projects where the pay is not guaranteed.
