Retrenchment is a huge blow to most people. It is not unusual for people to become depressed after being retrenched.
This reader's husband was retrenched a year ago and he is not making any effort to find a new job. Their debts are mounting, but when she tries to talk to him about it, he says money is all she is interested in.
And now she has been retrenched as well. Things have now reached crisis point, but he still will not discuss the situation. All he does is to borrow more money from his mother.
