The answer to that depends on so many factors.
The first one is - will he get unemployment?
The second - what are your housing costs? do you have an equity in your house?
Third - what is the unemployment rate in your area/field?
It can take a long time to save 6 months of expenses. If your expenses are 3000 a month - that is 18,000 dollars! That would take many people years to save. If I was miserable in my job - but could access unemployment or house equity I might quit anyways. Being miserable sucks.
I do think the smarter plan, if he can, is to look for work while still employed. It can be hard to find time to look for work while working full time - but this may be where you can come in (if you have more time that him). Most jobs are posted, and applied for, online. This can be done by significant others or in off hours (it is how my DH got his current job, lol)

Im not sure if he can get unemployment, I dont know how it works. He has a job "on the table" if thats what you mean. do you have to be working somewhere for a certain amount of time before being fired or laid off in order to collect?
