Why would your husband need to ask for your opinion concerning his work situation when he already knows what your opinion is??

Because your opinion on his work situation is inflexable and not changing from week to week it would seem unnecessary and repitious to continue asking the same question.

I think your husband does consider his family. You have said, from his POV he is the glue that holds the family together.

Your husband has gone the extra mile for his family by, in good faith, looking for a different job that is more family orientated. I think he has found that. In this time of GFC I do not think many would have risked doing that.

Your husband should be given a lot of credit.
