I know what you are saying. Between home stress and job stress, I had a break down once. It wasn't worth it in some ways, but losing my house and not being able to feed my kids would have been far worse. Sometimes you have to pick the better of two evils.<br />
<br />
If you have the savings, your fiancee will support you even if you have to listen to his complaints, or your parents/a relative/friend are willing to take you in for a while, the healthiest thing to do is quit. If you are out from under the stress of an evil job situation, you will have more energy and time to look for something else. <br />
<br />
That said, employers prefer to higher people who already have a job, and if you are out of the job markets too long, you may become unemployable. (Part of Americas wage slave system.) Some employers like to hire through temp services so they can try out the person before they commit. The nice thing about that, is you can find out if they are a company you want to work for before committing yourself. At the very least, working for a temp service will bring in some money while you are looking for steady work.<br />
<br />
On job hunting, it is who you know more than what you know. Something like 80% of hires are known by the employer or recommended by someone they trust. Ask everyone you know, if they know someone who is hiring. <br />
<br />
If quitting means you are on your own and your fiancee won't help, you are kind of stuck until you find a better job or a more supportive partner.<br />
<br />
Sorry I can't be more upbeat.

I'm kinda in the same boat. I work part time for a company I hate. But since I can't find another job in this economy, I stick it out. Don't leave until you have another job. You'll regret it if you do.

In some respects, the job market is improving. I was looking two years ago and found nothing. Now, I saw an opening and had an interview and got the job this week. <br />

I know it is the optimal situation to wait and get something lined up before quitting, but you know what's best for you. If this bad job is truly affecting your emotional, mental and physical state then it is a liability to you. Hopefully, you'll have some financial support from savings and family to get you through.
