I was a programmer before but I stopped working for more than 10 years and now I want to go back to school to update my knowledge. I am just afraid that it will go to waste now that it's hard to get a job.

It's definitely not a waste of time. There are TONS of jobs in technology...especially if you aren't afraid to do contract jobs. I work in the IT industry and had no trouble getting a job while still in school in my field.

I got married, and my husband had a business so I had to help him out. Because of the economy we have to close the business.

No, its not too late. If you were a programmer, you have the right mindset for this. Programmers and other IT specialists are very much in demand. I say go for it.

If you were out of it too long , then it may prove harsh to cope up.But there are few trends in technology where a fresh mindset is required.The old theory is totally abondoned making way for improvished techniques.Any such area of study may prove to be a boon for the future. Here experience or past studies aren't counted but the expertise in new techniques.
