Yahoo posted an article the other day with the link title, Carrie Underwood says she would quit her job if her husband told her to and the internet explodes. So I clicked on it. OF COURSE. There’s not much to clarify Carrie’s comment, even the author of the article says there’s probably more to the comment then it appears. But it got me thinking. About life, love, gender roles and all that.

And yes, I’d give up my job if Hubby asked me too.

But he sure as heck would want to have a good reason. But if he did, I would. If he felt it was important enough, I would. There are some things that are worth giving up almost anything for. Love and a quality relationship have to be one of them, right? I would expect him to the same for me. He would, I know him. That’s why I would, if he asked. the article’s writer inferred something similar… Would he do the same for her?

Errr, you said he already switched teams to live in Nashville where she is, I think the answer is yes.

But you know what, I’m pretty sure my Hubby {or Carrie’s} wouldn’t ask. Because when we say job, I am talking the thing I love, not the job that pays my bills and I happen to be pretty good at. I mean this blog. So that gives you some indication of how seriously I’m taking this. I love this blog, adore my life online but I’d give it up for him. For us, mostly.

I would worry about resent though if I did. I don’t think I would give anything up unless I felt that I wouldn’t resent it. But wouldn’t I resent my job, my life online if it cost me my relationship too? I would. Absolutely. Much, much more than I could ever resent my green eyed, generous, kind husband. Much, much more. It would cost him big time though. In shoes probably. Haha.

What say you? Would you give up something you love for your partner?
