I had the radio on at work yesterday, and the station it was tuned to was running it's advertising of it's morning crew's shows, and in one the clips, I heard them asking a question:
"Would you give up a great job to be in a relationship?"
I thought that was an interesting question. I'll be honest, I say "no". And here is why: First of all, I couldn't handle staying home all of the time, I would get bored. And, if it's a great job, that would mean, to me at least, that I like the job and like going to work. Second, what if the relationship bombs? Then I don't have a job nor a relationship...and that would totally suck. (and not in a good way either! )
I can't help but wonder how many people have given up a great job in order to have a relationship only to have that relationship end. How many would actually give up their job if their spouse/significant other were to ask/demand them to do so? Myself, if my s/o were to ask/demand I give up my job, I doubt if I would. Yes, I see it as security and as a source of independence for myself. If I were to be in a relationship, I would keep my job, I would most likely keep my accounts separate from my s/o, and respect that he would keep his accounts separate also. Maybe it's just me, but I see it that if one person asks their partner to give up a job, it's a sign of insecurity and a control issue.
So.......would any of you out there give up that great job for a relationship?
