Another RN friend files bankruptcy

For the 8th time in 5 years another RN friend files bankruptcy. Same story , husband unemployed. She works 60 hours a week while hubby seats at home doing nothing. Furthermore she pays his child support from his prior marriage $825 per month. She thought he was in school but he was blowing most of the money at the casinos. He has been to school for many things and none working out.

Each friend that has filed bankruptcy has pretty much the same story. Supporting a man that has a million excuses why he cant or will not work. He is in school, job pending, disable etc.... Please ladies be very careful. RNs are being specifically targeted by these losers. We work too hard to put up with this.

That's stupidity on her part. Sorry to be so harsh but if that was my husband, I'd make him leave and would quickly file for divorce.

Never think this cant happen to you. With nurses its more common than you think.

This did happen to me - although not the bankruptcy part. But I did file for divorce, did spend a lot on a lawyer and did end up a lot happier. The part that was difficult was getting him to move out.

Of course, we were married for ten years prior to the first spot of trouble and he had never been unemployed. But then he was, then I heard him literally refusing offers of employment on the phone and I could put up with it no more.

Now I'm scared. But a slightly different situation. He has been working his butt off as a truck driver the last 5 years, put me through LVN school and was now putting me through RN school.

He just got diagnosed with ankylosis spondylitis and has been enjoying his time off. I understand he's in severe pain, but I am worried of what's ultimately going to happen now...

I was encouraging him to go to school when I graduate and take my turn to support him, he wanted to be a respiratory therapist, but I don't think that'd be a good career choice now because of his disability.

This can happen to anyone, but only if you allow it. I work too hard for my money to support a grown dependent, and I have no desire for a "house-husband" or "stay-at-home spouse" at this time.

Tell me about it. Men need to be more responsible and we women shouldn't put up with stay at home men.

There is no way I would put up with a man who doesn't have a job, doesn't take care of the home nor the kids despite not having a job. This is probably the reason I am still not married. I refuse to be a doormat.

You and me both. It would be a cold day in hell I'd be working 60 hours a week and paying his child support while he sat on his ass doing nothing.

Not all stay-at-home men are bad people, and many are wonderful. Some men are legitimately disabled and cannot work, regardless of how badly they want to earn an income. Others stay at home full-time to care for the children because their wives have more education and earning potential. Some of these men stay at home during the winter due to the seasonal nature of their employment (landscaping, pest control, swimming pool maintenance, etc.). I have absolutely no problems with these types of stay-at-home men, although I cannot envision myself supporting one.

I personally have a problem with the men who are able-bodied, yet take no action as their wives struggle to stay above water. If the household requires two incomes to stay afloat, then both parties need to work.
