For the first time in our marriage--which is approaching 3 years--both my wife and I have full-time jobs. When we first married, my wife worked temp jobs while I freelanced. Then she was hired full-time while I continued freelancing.
In August, we moved so that I could take full-time job in Virginia. And my wife came to an extremely poor job market without any job lined up. Finally after a couple of unfruitful interviews, she was hired full-time in January for a position in the business office at my newspaper. This came about in a manner that was completely unexpected.
So now we’re both working full-time jobs, and we’re in the same building. It’s a double bonus.
I’m glad that after she left a great job with advancement possibilities, she can have this job, which will allow her to use her skills more--even if it’s not as cushy.Posted by JRC at March 6, 2004 02:10 PM
