    established company. But his job is a dead end position and he makes about 43k a years. Benefits suck. I think he is feeling really down about his career, but I don't know If he really has it in him to change. Yes I work, but honestly the fact that he never got it together career wise has hurt us, we are forced to live quite frugally. I am thinking I have to give up the job I love and go into something that pays much better ( currently make 75k) so we will be able to save for retirement. I can't help but feel resentful towards dh. And I gt depressed when I think about all the sahms I know with their very successful dhs.
