Back in the summer of 2007, my husband was laid off for over 1.5 years because of the automobile industry collapse. He worked for 4 months (Dec 2008 - Apr 2009) and was laid off again by another company. Now its May 2011 and he is still unemployed (I guess that makes him unemployed for 3.5 years!!)
I do not believe in nagging at him because we are both adults. However, I am pretty sure he hasn't been actively looking for work. He's sitting around and waiting for his friends to hand him a job (that's how he got the previous jobs). I asked him to take some courses so that he can keep up with the industry (both of us are IT geeks). He kept on giving me excuses such as the courses haven't started or his friend's work might have an opening soon, etc.
I am getting really fed up and stressed out. To begin with,
