Do you support your partner's career choice?
-- In general, yes, I do. My partner hasn't quite chosen exactly what he wants to do, but he is very adamant about studying science and working in a scientific field. He's very interested in neuroscience, but there are a ton of other things he'd love to pursue, too. He's at a point where there are so many cool things to choose from and he can't pick just one!
More general, what are you most proud of your partner for?
-- I'm very proud of my partner for his resilience to better himself as a person and succeed in what he's passionate about. He's been working hard to turn his life around since overcoming depression in high school and even since we've been together I've seen some big steps forward in that journey. It makes me so proud to see him grow and become happier with each passing day. :3
Have there ever been times in your relationship where you wish they would've made a different choice?
-- Not really. I couldn't really wish that when my partner doesn't know exactly what career in science he'd like to pursue.
Mine is perusing a degree in Aviation Engineering. I am very supportive, but he doesn't have much confidence in himself and it's disappointing. I find him to be extremely smart and talented. However, he doesn't see it.
And it kind of makes me want to bash my head on the wall too.
It can be hard to find something that holds my interest, but honestly, I'd take a job that I could tolerate and make a living in. There's always volunteer work for passions if you can't get a field in it. Might help him find something for himself.
My gearlfriend works in a library, and she loves her job. I would too....
My husband is getting his fire cards and emt 1 card. It's a tough job choice, especially with cutbacks, but it's what he wants to do. If nothing else, he could find a day job and then just volunteer at some stations until he finds one that will hire him.
i supported my partner through uni and when he finished i moved 200 miles from family and friends, quiting my own job to be with him.
it annoys me because he moans about things at work but i know thats just normal and that he does love what he does.
hes now supporting me through pregnancy as were expecting our first child.
