I queried the number of jobs you've had in a short space of time as did @warwick2001 but you've never answered. Now there could be a perfectly legitimate reason for it but I did wonder if you're a bit like my brother, always flip flopping from one thing to another, his current dream is to become a dog groomer. It's difficult for us to get excited about his career ambitions because he never sticks to anything so I wondered if you were similar.
Good luck with it. If you have the "itch" I can imagine a repeat performance if you join the specials as it just won't be enough if it's a genuine dream.
I think your wife is probably ecstatic that she hasnt had to compromise at all her and she has broken you down to accept defeat. Just make sure it doesn't become a regular thing.
On the flip side could you imagine holding her back from her dreams.....
I'm not sure why you've had to resign from your current job, but I'm sure that's just because I can't remember all the details!
They were moved back into a civilian role whilst injured I think, so not actually their job anymore.
That's how I read it. Could have got that wrong.
Happy moneysaving all.
You probably didn't tell her cos subconsciously you know she would spit her dummy at you wanting to pursue your dreams. How much of a surprise could it have been, when you two are in a relationship, presumably discussing hopes, and dreams for the future
Now it has been twisted round in to YOU being in the wrong.
Your partner manipulated you at every turn here - to get what she wanted. It worries me that you have totally swallowed this rubbish
THIS IS NOT A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP
Honestly I am disgusted that a human who claims to love another, would rip their dreams away. People do not do that to people they love - they support and help NURTURE their dreams, even if creates some problems - you work with your loved one to overcome the obstacles to their dream NOT use any manipulative means necessary, tears tantrums and emotional manipulation from your kids via her
Your partner sounds toxic.
It's really very sad that this is the relationship, and the 1 life that the op gets.
It's not a dress rehearsal....
Children aren't tiny forever, he's going to join the specials now, get some experience and apply again in a few years when it makes more sense for the whole family, what is so terrible about that? After all loads of women have to wait till the kids are older before pursuing their careers!
