solution to, do i pick husband or job

March 19, 2010 7:35am CST
so my husband wanted to leave again after we discussed before getting together that he'd never stop me from moving somewhere for my career. i work in the museum field and just got offered a job in antarctica for 6 months where he can't come with me. he doesn't really want me to go and said he'd eventually leave if i continue to do jobs like this. This is my first one out of the contry so it's not like i keep leaving him for jobs. anyway we talked last night and i told him nothing was going to stop me from living out my dreams. our solution is to take him as far as new zealand, there is a base there that i work out of half the time. but not sure how much time i'd have off to see him or how i will travel to see him wherever he stays. then i have to pay for his stay out there cause he doesn't work and his flight. well at least it's a start of a comprimise right

It is sad that your husband is always putting you into this position. I hope you figure out something. Although it seems like every time things do not go his way and involves change, he wants out. It is not fair to you or your child.

So, you are working, and keeping him? but he doesn't want you to take the jobs you want? I dont think he is the one in the position to make the conditions here. I wish you well in your relationship because you must love him a lot to offer this compromise.
