My Husband Has Retired at 46
(Jhb, South Africa)
My husband of 16 years just resigned from his job, cashed out his pension and spends his days washing and ironing.
He is irritable and angry and open discussion about the situation is not an option.
He admits that he is depressed, but refuses to go for counseling, and when I offered to go and explain his symptoms to the doctor, he said he will not take the medication.
We have 3 young daughters and whilst I earn a decent wage, I feel resentful that all the money worries now fall to me.
