When and if I ever complete my education, my husband has planned to go back. Currently he is a Union Ironworker, which is a dirty and dangerous job, but pays the bills quite well. Matt has never been one to really "try" or apply himself in schooling (we've been together since high school, nine years). He has started his education, with one semester under his belt, but it is too hard for us both to go at the same time and pay the bills. My concern is, he doesn't know what he wants to do. He really loves History and Economics and was planning to persue a Social Sciences (Secondary) degree. There are so few jobs, though, that he gets discouraged even thinking about going back. I don't want him to give up and I certainally don't want him to Ironwork his whole life, he is already facing shoulder surgery at 25. I would like to give him some honest encouragemnet, but is there any to be had?
