Honest opinions please! I have a BA and a small business (for 14 years) but it has died in the last six months. DH has a higher degree and has been told that he will be laid off in March. He has been getting additional certifications recently with my full support because we are concerned about the economy and we have been planning for the layoff. He has also been doing phone interviews in spite of a broken leg and several positions look really good. But there's always that "What if?" Here's the thing. My qualifications are not strong. I have been doing the same thing with software in my own business for a long time and it is now obsolete. We have invested a tremendous amount in DH's education recently (over $10,000) because his company stopped paying for his classes. Last night I brought up taking a class for $300 so that I could start to get back in the game, so to speak. And he flipped out. Like cussing at me, flipped out. Because of the money. Does this seem right? Shouldn't we be more reliant on both of us instead of him, especially given the circumstances? Honestly, I think I know the answer but I'd love to hear from others in case I'm wrong.
