If you were asked to change you line of work by your significant other, how hard of a decisions would it be & why??? (Sometimes sacrifice is needed to see the bigger picture)

Well in a relationship there should be communication, compromise and change. Each should communicate their wants, needs and desires, come to a mutual compromise for positive change. In order for a relationship to flourish both parties must grow together and each should do what is best for each other, oneself and the relationship as a whole. There should be no question of motives or sacrificing to prove ones love. There should only be togetherness and support of each other dreams to further the growth of the relationship.

I always believe that with commitment, we will enjoy freedom. So, I find it quite disturbing that one would so much so, ask his/her partner to change his/her line of work. However, we might probably ask then, why should the change be made. If the reasons are valid and not of selfish nature (like it might benefit one party, not the other), then maybe you can consider it. That being said, sacrifice has a negative tone to it. If you feel, changing line of work is a "sacrifice" than perhaps you might not want to change job at all. Love, does not need sacrifices.

As you know I'm an Evangelist that preaches and teaches the Holy Word of God! I wouldn't , can't, and basically wouldn't be expected to change this because it is me! It would be impossible to change what I have become, as in God in Me and Me in God! There could be no seperation. He is my life and my life is in Him! If my Husband would ever entertain this sudgestion, he would realize the absubity of it and if He didn't like my profession he would definitely opt to get rid of me. Because I am who I am and always will be!:) God's Best! xo

i don't know that i would sacrifice for the happiness of another. life is not about sacrifice or giving up for another. relationships are not about sacrifice, but sharing in each others happiness.

That would depend on my line of work-and my significant other. It would also depend on why he wanted me to change my line of work. If it was the logical thing to do for the betterment of our relationship or our future-I would do it in a heartbeat.
