From Dink to Alphabet Soup and Back: The Ebb and Flow of Career Choice between Partners.
Gelardin, Sally; Hochman, Alex
Achieving both career development and a successful relationship requires a give and take in career choice between partners throughout the stages of a relationship. Whose career takes precedence at different stages of the relationship? How are spousal career decisions today made differently than in the past? How can partners' career decisions be made in the future? Couples can help or hinder each other's career development and the general well-being of the relationship. The career issues with which couples struggle are presented, interspersed with research and activities that can be used by career practitioners to assist couples in managing career-related decisions.
