Thank you for choosing justanswer! You are right in that your husband has gone against a business agreement for more than a year and it is time to make a decision about his problem.
Yes it is his problem and he needs to come up with a solution. If that means selling the equipment, hiring someone who can help like a life coach or even have someone else willing to work with him he needs to decide.
You should set a time with him to discuss this and tell him he has a certain amount of time to decide what to do. You should not threaten to sell the hardware but say that there is a time frame and he needs to stick to it.
Let him know that you are prepared to divorce him if necessary if he cant take on the responsibility to make important decisions.that effect you and your mother. You get over this by telling him he needs to make some decisions in his life.
You are not going to allow him to squander the money your mother gave him. Not in an angry way but just as this was done in good faith and you support your mom in this.

Thank you Dr. Kappler for your quick response. I have already given him a time limit and it expired this summer. Still no action from him. I never mentioned divorce before. That is my next step. You are right he has to make a decision or I will have to make mine.
