Would you rather be known as a person who has had a single long-lasting relationship and twenty different jobs over the past ten years, or someone who had twenty different relationships and one reliable job?
That sounds like my son that lives in your neck of the woods. It seems he has a different job every year but he and Jamie have been in a relationship for at least 10 years.
Sounds like my partner too. He has had a lot of different jobs but we've been together for 8 years.
I still want to go shopping with your partner. My son is a bear. And the main breadwinner. Jamie is going to the arts college.
How about both? Married for 25 years and same job for 27.
But, I pick love over job.
Married 40 years, my husband has had the same job for 38 years. And I've had the same job for five years.
That is wonderful!
Tough one. While I am very career oriented Ultimately I choose love. I always always wanted a family.
In a 22 year relationship, retired with over 25 years of service with a company.
Love is more important. Jobs will come and go. I've been with my husband for 21 years (married for 19). I've been a housewife most of our marriage, but have had 5 part-time jobs along the way.
Sounds like me.
My husband has had the same job for 13 years and has always been able to make more money than me. By not "having" to work, I've been able to stay home to take care of things.
My husband was a widower with 2 children when we got married. They wanted to be able to have a stay home mom. Then we had three more. He's a high school teacher so we never had a lot but we had adequate. I sewed from scratch and cook from scratch
There's no doubt in my mind that a stay at home mom IS a job and requires some serious skills.
We don't have kids, but we do have critters. Most of the stuff I handle is selling things on eBay or Craigslist. Getting parts for mowers, etc.
Too late I. Had both
The first answer describes my life over the last 41 years of marriage. I've changed jobs a lot.
I'm probably going to surprise people but I'd rather be known as focused in work. Love and marriage were great while I had them but it's great without them too. It's just different. And let's face it, a focused career is important.
I guess it depends on the woman. If she was a near perfect match for me I would choose love. Otherwise I would choose to get some variety with the women and a good job.
Love makes the world go round
This was hard for me to choose, but I chose focused in love.
Dammit I don't know the answer to my own question... :/
if political and I agree on something, it must be good.
