I'd rather be poor and happy. Life is too short to have a soul sucking job where you hate waking up every morning.

Of course I'd take about any fugging job right now.

Trying to talk the wife into a change. She's been in her biz for almost 25 years now and is a COO with a pretty strong 6-figure salary. She hasn't been happy for over a year and she's exploring other opportunities, but I guess it's not to the point when she hangs it up.

Her current contract is up in August, so maybe she'll decide to not pursue a new deal and we'll move on. I'm not sure I should push her or let her decide for herself.

i would recommend that you let her decide for herself.

Make sure that she knows you support her no matter what her decision.

My wife was torn about 5 years ago when she was thinking about becoming a stay at home mom. She was a Treasurer for a Fortuen 500 company....with a strong six figure salary. She was burnt out from the rat race.
