Young husband asleep on leather couch

Lazy Husbands, Hungry Kids...

Dear Pearls, Is it normal for wives of Visionary men to face homelessness? My husband has not worked at all for 2 years. Our car died and there is no money to fix it. Our savings are almost gone. We are very behind on our rent, and my husband has made it clear that he does not want me trying to get any kind of government assistance.
