          "I’m Living In A 'Mancession!' My Lazy, Underachieving Husband Refuses To Get A Job!"

          March 07, 2016

          14088 title

          Chelsie says she’s frustrated because her husband, T.J., has not held a job in the two years they have been married.

          She says after working all day, she comes home and spends two to three hours cleaning up after T.J. and their baby, doing laundry, cooking and cleaning. Chelsie says she loves her husband, but she is beyond stressed feeling the weight of having to financially take care of their family all on her own – and says she can’t take it any longer!

          T.J. says that part of the reason he can’t get a job is because he has to watch their 22-month-old daughter while Chelsie is at work.

          After speaking with Dr. Phil, will this couple commit to making changes in order to save their marriage?
