To afford the rental house he's living in, Timothy has to sell his appliances. "This is not at all what I had planned for our life," he says. "Does this feel like home? No. It feels like a place to keep out the weather and the bugs."

It's a feeling of failure in every area, and there's no end in sight," Amy says. "There's a definite chance I could walk away from this marriage."
