Am I the only spouse who is about to have a breakdown if her husband doesn't get a job?

I am supportive, he works hard and just got his Ph.D. this semester from a top ten school.  It took ten years and this is year three on the job market and according to his committee he has a strong dissertation.  What does that all mean though if he doesn't even get one MLA interview this year?  What the heck do you do if you spent 10 years pursuing something that may not support your family?  We don't talk about it at home anymore but the air is thick and I sometimes don't want to go home anymore.  Any words of wisdom and encouragement appreciated.
