If your spouse/significant other had a problem with your job/career, would you quit for him/her?

Of course, I'm married to my wife, not married to a job,

Going through that right now. "Hubby" hates I work nights and weekends...oh well I need money.

It really would depend in what the issue was, how financially stable we were, and what the prospects for re-employment were in the area in which we lived.

It depends. If it was my dream career, then no, but we would be going to marital counseling. If it was just a job then yes, as long as we could still pay the bills or I had something else lined up.

This Chippendale gig gets on my wife's nerves from time to time but I remind her that it pays the cable bill and all is good again.

Can't really answer that. It would not only depend on what the nature of the problem was, but the answer would come only after a lot of discussion between us (my hypothetical "us"), & I can see it going either way... whatever was best for *us.*

My wife hates that I work on a boat but she understands why I do it.

My husband does not like my boss at all. He hasn't been around for a few months but if he insisted I would quit.

If they had a problem with my job, they would be my significant other. Accept me or find someone else

I would quit if the job was causing significant problems between us. For example, if my job was so demanding and stressful that I became a different person and could not or would not focus on my marriage, I would quit--even if I really loved my job.

That would depend on the reasoning behind him not liking my job. If I were a stripper and he was jealous of everybody else drooling over me the I probably would. If he didn't like my job because it meant that I had independence then I would be more

More likely to leave him than my job. And if he didn't like it for some moral or ethical reasons then I would probably be agreeing with him and already be on my way out of that job
