DH has had his heart set on being a real estate agent. Our local economy wasn't too affected by the real estate crash so he got licensed and set up with a large brokerage. He has had a lot of contacts but hasn't made a single blessed dollar since he started in March and it was a lot of money to get him going -- licensing, joining the National Association of Realtors, etc etc. I did some seasonal commission/contract work over the summer which got us by. Now that the summer is ending I am actively looking for work since we are financially tapped out. At this point I don't care if I am a Starbucks barista so long as we get some money coming in.
DH keeps saying "I should probably go get a new job" which is a good thing since his income was necessary before the real estate thing and we have barely been able to squeak by without it. However he hasn't. He isn't spending any time doing real estate work anymore either and instead logs lots of hours on World of Warcraft and argues religion on message boards all day. I know that he is not taking this failure well and I have been trying to keep my mouth shut. After all, who wants some horrible harpy nagging you about getting a job?
The only problem is we really really need the money and I would prefer not to borrow money from his parents to pay the bills. (We're not there yet, but it's dangerously close) Any suggestions? Advice from people whose spouses have been un/underemployed welcome!
