In brief: Balance

Healthy living requires balance, your husband is a priority but work is important.
Staying without pay is a sacrifice, an investment if you see good things coming, but if not, give the time to your family, not the job.

In brief: Conflict Resolution

Does spending more time at the job offer a future increase in compensation? If so i would help your husband to understand this.
Your relationship with your husband should be of paramount importance in order to insure a long lasting relationship--so don't let the new job destroy your marriage. Explain to him the benefit of your professional relationships on the job and its importance as well.
