Terrible exchange rate. But if you’re not going to use them elsewhere it’s better than expiring

My husband quit his very well-paying job in February to become a freelancer. I was fully supportive of this move because he was miserable at his job. He is hustling and trying to find work but it is slow. We are depleting our savings and I am stressed about our financial health and feel like retirement is getting pushed further out. I am struggling not to feel resentful. I don’t want to push him back into a career he hates but also feel like part of being an adult is making hard decisions.
