  1. Tell him to get a job and a life,he has 3 boys,who will train them? Let him stop resigning and think because he has a hardworking wife,therefore he can always resign and come home to stay. And don’t always give him the impression that you are a man- woman,he has to work because he has responsibilities. You can put somebody in the shop and go back to your teaching job, so that there can be two source of income for you,it is well with you.

  2. Pls don’t allow him to run the shop, he will ruin the business, don’t be emotional about it pls Sister, you can have someone to run the business but PLEASE PLEASE AND PLEASE make sure you put a HONEST person I mean VERY HONEST PERSON, even if the person is your family member but no honest pls don’t put such people, put only HONEST person there oo. GOD bless you.
