Talk about stress in a relationship these days in our economic troubles and you hit a goldmine. Ten million people out of work and no end in sight, companies still laying off, some just closing up for good, there just doesn`t seem to be any light at the end of the tunnel. Bleak times and it will last for a few more years. Some relationships will not survive this mess the country is in, they should be able to make it thru but people start blaming each other for the way things are in their lives and soon the resentment is so strong the relationship ends. No miracle cure for hard times, we just have to be ready when the market picks up.
I`m laid off and searching every day for a good job that has the benefits my last job had, nothing much is coming from my search. Lots of people in the same boat, money is tight and that makes it hard on everyone, just staying afloat is a miracle.
Keeping a relationship strong in times like these is hard but not impossible, we have to make sure we don`t direct our anger about our money situation at our partners, nothing good will come from it. Sometime in the future we will get back on track and this will all be behind us, for now we have to keep the faith and try to make it, keep in touch.
