Well, since the first part was wholly hypothetical, I would imagine you are honked off that I suggested that you would count the person who earned themselves the ability to earn a degree without also working to be a failure.

Good to know. Because mostly it appears as though you are prepared to count a good many people as being far less successful than you see yourself.

Doubtful...I've lived outside the country and aside from that spent the better part of a cumulative year over the past 20 traveling to Europe. My degree gave me an edge in several areas on those trips, too.

And has no career. She'd be regarded as a risk by any large corporate HR department especially as a law school grad.

I'll be married on Sunday, so I'll wait to see if they tag on any additional offers of a housewife license.
Really though, we have a cleaning lady pop through for a reason. I am not, nor will I ever be suited for homemaking. The very idea of being stuck at home all day with cleansers and pot roasts is a bit too close to my idea of hell.
I'm just thankful that he can cook.
tranps--I came up in the 50s. The reality is that for a good many women being stuck at home all day with cleansers and pot roasts WAS hell. My mom was a stay at home AND had a cleaning lady. And when the whole scene really became clinically depressing she took up bowling one day a week and started helping at my dad's office--just to get out of the house.

Nonetheless, she was regarded as "just a housewife."

Didn't mean to cast any aspersions--just figured that since you had a fiance, the two of you have probably done some sort of cooperative economics to allow you some space to persue this unpaid portion of your career.

Wish you all the best with both the wedding and the research.

“Meh.”

Wow, you guys seem way more worried about my career outlook than I am.

Unless someone pretty extreme and unplanned for happens, I should be fine!

Assuming I survive the move, wedding and blind assessment. Which is looking less and less likely with every new crisis.

Well, there are two possibilities.
Take a listen and then report back on what you think.
Unlike you, I'll let the jury decide that.

Travel is one thing.

Living and working in another country something altogether different.

Yeah, I never want to disparage staying at home, some folks seem to really enjoy it. I just think I would go utterly batty. Good on your mom for finding something to get her out of the house.

Nah, we've both keep finances separate, which I imagine has saved no end of bickering. Also, merging finances always looks like a terrible idea, long term.

I thought you lived in Canada, as a child? Where did you work? Did you pick up a swish new language?

You can go back to any post of mine on this subject. I have never taken a side. If you find one that slants in one direction or another, it will be construed out of context of the conversation.

Grew up in Massachusetts. College in Maine. First real career job was for an energy company in New Brunswick, living in Fredericton for three years. As far as "picking up" a language, my mother was an Acadien...I grew up with French and used it from time to time in NB at work. I still have some proficiency, but nothing close to what I had 25 years ago.
