Sounds like a problem with the clutch. If it has gone out, then it does not matter what position the pedal itself is in. If you can shift it to all the gears with the engine off, but not while it is running then that would cinch the deal. If you & or your husband is not mechanically inclined enough to replace one, or know someone who is, then sounds like it is time to put it in the shop.
