Marriage should come first.
I mean that is what we have been told since we were little children. However, for many, that does not hold true and there is nothing wrong with that. Some people are inherently more career-focused than others and that is fine as long as their partner is aware of that. After all, marriage is full of compromises and you can’t expect one party to just lay down for you whenever you want.
It’s a give and take relationship. But most seem to forget this very important part. This seems to hold true for the following couple. While it may sound like the wife is the bad guy in this story since she is focusing on her career more than her husband. However, it is much more complicated than the title suggests. You can take a look for yourself by scrolling on below.
We start off with some background on what is happening with their jobs and the pandemic.
It sounds exaggerated but I know companies like these in real life.
I can understand why one would be worried about this very serious matter.
However, rather than talking it out with her and compromising on the situation.
He has decided that the job offer is even more important than their marriage. (Because, really, who thinks that you’re keeping your marriage after telling your SO to give up their career because of your much lower paying job offer?) –pcnauta
He decided to go ahead and accept the job.
Even if he does capitulate, their relationship will never be the same again. She now knows that she isn’t the highest priority in his life. And he’ll forever resent her for not backing down on the issue. –pcnauta
And I think divorce is inevitable.
People agreed that the wife wasn’t in the wrong here.
It wasn’t just a job but her whole career.
And she earns way more than him.
What does he want her to do? Stay at home?
It wouldn’t work out between them.
And now it is necessary that you process this information.
She shouldn’t have had to make that choice.
And respect is the most important thing in a relationship.
Some people even shared their own experiences.
All in all, this was going to happen, one way or another.
