He is a SE Regional manager for the company he works for FT. He is an investment partner in a bar/restaurant downtown ... and he is a Major in the Army Reserves. He will have his 20-years in w/ the military in about 3 years ... so then will likely retire from the Army as a Lt. Colonel or Colonel, which will be fabulous as far as retirement pay and benefits.

He just started his own company about 4 months ago, but he pays himself the same wage as he did with his previous employer.

My FI is the manager of a University Print shop and makes good money, he likes his job, but doesn't love it. He's passionate abouts sports and got a BA in Sports Admin. We had a converstation the other day about his dream job. He said that he wouldn't take it, because that would mean moving 8 hours away and he didn't want to sacrifice his families happiness for his... that sounds very romantic and nice, but I think he's scared of failing. If he ever gets an opportunity to do his dream job, I will do everything in my power to make sure he takes it. I want him to be happy and I know that I can get a job in my industry almost anywhere I go... I'm 32 and have been working in my industry 15 years, I'm made a name for myself in this industry! There is a possibility that he may get his dream job in the future... and I don't care if he takes it and fails (which I know he won't), but I can't live with the regret he will have if he doesn't even try!

Even at $75K he is making about 5 times what I do. That is SAD. I feel horrible because all of the money that we've put towards our wedding so far (and we're not done yet) he has had to pay. He has to pay for everything of mine except for student loans, credit card bills (i got myself into trouble with those damn things!), and gas. Everything else he pays for and i HATE it. I'm trying to find a job that I can make enough to pay off my credit card bills in about 12 months but it's a tough field out there!
Our goal is to erase our student loan debt and my credit card bills and then live off of his salary and put 100% of mine into investment stuff. (You can tell i know a lot about investment "stuff"). He tells me that if anything happened to him right now that I'd be set and have nothing to worry about (i hate hearing this b/c all I want is HIM, not his dumb money). His goal has always been to have the option of retiring at 35 years old (he'll be 28 in December). He thinks if I get a good paying job SOON that he'll be able to make that.
Becksy, i'm a rather weepy one sometimes and your post totally made me teary eyed. That is the sweetest thing ever and I think it is so beautiful that you want him to take his dream job if he gets the opportunity so that he won't regret it.
