And nearly every couple has asked those very same questions. Whether it’s one person getting laid off, while the other struggles to carry the weight of the their spouse. Or one person simply doesn’t work and never really had to during their marriage because times were good, and now all of a sudden the subject of finding a job to make ends meet is now surfacing.
