Our expert says:
These are tough times for getting and keeping jobs, but wise people realize that its also a reallu bad time to be over-fussy. To leave a job without another lined up to go to, is usually foolish. To excessively find fault, especially in an offensive and combative manner, rather than trying to solve recognized problems, is also a recipe for worklessness. And a guy who is drinking ) how can he afford alcohol ? ) is NOT looking for a job.
Maybe he has got severely discouraged and has given up, but he ought to recognize the needs of his wife and children, and put them higher among his priorities than feeling sorry for himself.
You may need to consider giving him an ultimatum, for the sake of yourself and the children - to shape up, and get a job - ANY job, top start with - and work and help to get things better, or to move out on his own and face a divorce. Encourage him to seek help and counselling from whatever source is accessable, but don't indulge in his apparent current plans to sit and wait for something marvellous to come knocking at the door. The needs of the children should be paramount.
