Why would you try and force your husband to join the army? If he doesn't want too then he shouldn't have too. Seems kind of a silly question to me.

I know i cant force someone but we never have money to take my kids anywhere. Were home everyday doing nothing because we dont have money for anything. I love my husband very much but i wonder is it really worth it to stay with him?

If I were in your shoes. I would decide how much I loved my husband and if I wanted to stay with him and accept him as he is or move on with my life and for my children since evidently you are supporting your family on your own anyways.

Unfortunately you can't force someone to change they way they are. Maybe he needs a reality jolt to man up as you say.

Maybe a trial separation would do it.

Well maybe that would have been a better way to have posted your question. It sounded like you were forcing him too and he had no interest in it.

If he is unwilling to change there is positively nothing you are going to do to convince him otherwise. So you need to decide if you want to stay with him as is or move on with your life with your kids and do it as a single mom.

Why would it sound silly to you if you don't know about my life? Maybe if you knew that he is always talking about joining and wanting to take the test but really its all talk. Hes been unemployed for 2 yrs and still doesn't wanna man up and take care of our family. I'm not forcing him but when is it time for him to change. I tried everything to get him to do something but he doesn't. Should i leave him or should i wait another 2 yrs waiting for him to do something.

Does he want to? You can't make someone do anything they don't want to do.

If he wants to then get him to apply. I really don't understand your question.
