My husband has a masters degree in his field, but we are desperately wanting to find a new job for him. We think the best option might be to change fields. These jobs won't pay enough for us to live on unless he goes back to school, which is something he's kind of always wanted anyway.
We have two young kids, a mortgage, my school loans, and insurance payments. Even, if he gets an assistantship - which I think he can - how do we pay our living expenses/bills? We live very frugally. We don't have cell phones, or cable, and we don't go out much. I don't think we can cut back in any other way.
I feel like this is a dumb question. People do it all the time right? Did you get a loan to pay your living expenses? Or did the spouse go to work. I don't know that I could get a job that would pay all of our bills now.
