Incredibly long story here. I recieved a job offer from an investment company which is going to be incredibly lucrative financially.
But it would mean I would have to be away from my wife for 6 months to a year for training as I have to fly to New York.
I could stay here in Singapore to look for a job that will never pay me anything close to this kind of salary.
My wife and I lived in one regular HDB 4 room but we do not have any kids. This job is offering up to a 150k a year and wonderful retirement. I could finally have the financial security I’ve looked for so long. My wife doesn’t think our marriage could last that long and she doesn’t want to do long distance again.
Am I in the wrong for still wanting to take the job?
I ensured her that there will be a lot of open communication and I will be in regular contact with her. But she is not taking this positively. The second reason I need this job is because I needed money to repay a debt and if we were to have children we will need even more money.
We did a calculation, after paying off debts we will still be struggling 10 years from today.
What is the most helpful thing to sustain a long-distance relationship?
