So, a little bit about my situation. I have been in a relationship with someone for about 8 years. We actually left the church together so long journey.
Anyway, he has a criminal record, which makes it really hard for him to find work. I personally believe if he really wanted to, he would figure something out, but I understand that it's hard.
After much convincing, he is finally going to school for a field which is lenient about past convictions, so that is something.
Unfortunately, however, this summer, with all of his classes online, he still has not found any kind of work. He also will not clean the house, saying that it's too messy/it just gets messed up/he doesn't know what to do without my input. I would help, but I am working my @ss off to keep us afloat, and we are really struggling.
It makes me sick that he sees me struggle and work like this...and does nothing. I am at a point where I can't take it anymore and am thinking about leaving. I would like some advice. Perhaps this is due to how men are viewed in the church.
