Men Express Themselves
Millions are without jobs. And, when a job comes along, the issue of what sacrifices are necessary arises. - For those with work, the issue is often 'How much will I tolerate in order to keep my job? Take stuff home? Work extra hours for the bubble? Commute more? Relocate? Or...'.
So it is that couples often face the dilemma of what sacrifices need to be made. And what impact they will they have on the family... The spousal relationship. The children, if there are any.

you ask, 'if
my spouse and kids resent my spending time with them at the expense
of doing without the niceties of life?'.
-- If your family truly cares more about material things than your
health, stress, and family time together, then I hate to tell you
what you probably already know.
So, it's a juggling act. But, if you are only the breadwinner. And nothing much more, than why stay? Just a thought.
If you listen to Dave Ramsey, you know that he values not only living a debt-free life, but, most of all, living with a family that is committed to one another. I agree with him, here!
