My son is 34 and my husband is 54 and I believe my husband is jealous of all of my son's accomplishments. He served in the Air Force for 6 years, just completed his Masters Degree and recently was promoted to a well paid position at the United States Coast Guard. My husband has been out of work for 3 years. He came home from our vacation and called in and quit. He said he has been looking for a job but I don't believe he has been. This has caused a lot of tension between my son and myself because my son won't come over to my house because of my husband. He doesn't respect him for what he is doing and thinks he should be contributing towards the household. I retired the year before he quit his job and took a big pay cut. I only see my grandchildren if I go to my sons house. Then my husband seems like he is jealous because I'm taking time away from him. Any advice would be appreciated. I'm at my wits end. Thanks for listening.
