    Yes and No. My last job I was working overnight shifts and he HATED it. He did not tell me to leave exactly, but he made it pretty clear that he did not appreciate it. Honestly? I did not like it much either. I quit, but mainly because I wanted to leave, his unhappiness gave me more of an incentive. We do not have that issue with my new job thankfully.

    I had been dating my husband about a year.  I worked 2nd shift.  It’s really hard to have a relationship, especially grow a new relationship, when you only get to sleep together half the night or see each other on the weekends in the mornings.

    He was honest, he told me that he didn’t know if it would work out if I continued to work there.  Not to mention he knew I wasn’t happy with what I made there and knew I could do better.  I did – got a job (this job) making $20k more, days, great benefits – the best being seeing him after work all the time!

    I absolutely love my current job – best job I’ve ever had!  The pay is fair, the benefits are unreal, and my co-workers are hilarious and supportive.  It’s a great corporate culture and I’m happy.

    However – Fiance got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that requires us to move to Seattle.  It was the hardest decision we’ve ever had to make, but he asked me to be willing to sacrifice my job to move with him.  Though it was bittersweet to give notice, I am happy to be able to support him, and hopefully he knows that I’m in this relationship for us and what’s best long-term.. not just for me. 

    My last day is Tuesday!

    My hubby hasn’t asked me to leave my job but he has expressed discontent when I suggested that I want another job (part-time). He strongly believes that will be detrimental to our relationship because we will spend less and less time together. He doesn’t want that. In a weird, twisted way, I like that he wants to spend time with me. But on the other hand, I know that I can do more. (And no, I don’t want to volunteer. Embarassed I rather make more $$$ and donate more.)
