Jen:My husband just lost his job. How do I stay supportive during these financial times? You spouse has stopped bringing home the bacon? Thank goodness. Take it from me. Your trusty piggy bank. There is no need to go hot and wild about your husband's sort of commute to the couch every morning. Instead of worrying if you will pack on the post and playing the Pandage, excuse me! Worry about how you can be supportive without letting your relationship or your bank account suffer. Set common goals for yourself. So limit spending and maximize networking. Offer encouragement but don't nag or hover. Throw it down on your luck, potluck dinner. To emphasis the fact that your new social life is less about spending and more about relationships. And whatever you do, don't break the bank. Got a question, send it to StillLife@yourtango.com
