Hi Brenda,

I lost my job recently and we are struggling to make ends meet.

My husband and I didn’t earn much before; but our combined salaries pushed us through.

My husband is very supportive and caring and takes care of everything right now.

Despite our relatives knowing the difficulty we are going through, they keep demanding financial support.

My husband is so strained and we are hurting as a family. Please help.

 

Hi,

In a marriage, it is the responsibility of the respective partners to manage the respective families.

Unfortunately, this means that your family is a “you” problem, and his family is a “him” problem.
