I Wish to God My Husband Would Get Finished With His Dissertation and Defend His Thesis!g

 I am so sick of my husband being in Graduate School!  We moved here 8 years ago and he started this program straight out of undergrad.  We've suffered through the death of both of my parents, 4 grandparents, and had two miscarriages.  How much must we pay to get through this hell?  I can literally see the light at the end of the tunnel but it feels like the train is stopping AGAIN!!!  AGGGHHH!  I can't take it.  

My husband is brilliant and is an amazing teacher.  I can't help him with this.  He's teaching, he's working on an outside project and he's finishing his thesis.  

Can anyone relate to this?  Can anyone give me hope??  

I love my husband so much; but this is driving me insane.  I want to have a LIFE a real LIFE.  I want to make plans, be able to go back to school, have another child....MOVE on....

Is it possible for him to stop working for a while - even a couple months - just to focus on writing so that he can finish?

Has he finished?

I relate to your comment. <br />

But I am more concerned about him actually getting A JOB after this hell.
