If you were offered a great career opportunity that required you move far away, would you turn it down for a relationship? The tough choices some people face often come down to picking what is most important to you at the time. A lot of women who are single but want to be married may consider picking a man over the career. The hope is that they can somehow end up with the great man and the great career will still come later. What if it doesn’t, though?
I have a friend who turned down a position because it required a lot of traveling. Her boyfriend at the time said that it would be hard to be in what would feel like a long distance relationship. He even admitted that he was not sure if he could resist temptation while she was away! She now regrets this choice because her relationship didn’t last and she thinks her career would be further along if she had accepted the traveling job.
How do you decide between love and career? Would you relocate to a new city with someone you were dating if they took a job elsewhere?
