  • Now they are talking real money

    Now the recruiter is talking about maybe increasing my current income
    by 57%, now sure if he gets it, but if he does, I think that I will
    take it. We could pay off the house in 4-5 years this way. Perhaps I
    could throw money at the time problem also, such as hiring someone to
    do lawnmowing, food shopping etc. Also, I could replace some of my
    time consuming exercise to intense exercise. They have a gym at their
    place, and instead of spending 500 cals by walking 100 minutes per
    day, I could spend 500 cals by being on an elliptical for 30 minutes.

    From what you listed before, I still wouldn't do it.

        Have you ever read The Millionaire Next Door? One of the factors they
        talk about is staying married to your first wife. Divorce is a huge
        financial set back. Think about it.

            Well, yes I did read both millionnaire books. Great stuff.

            I agree that staying married to my first wife (surely would not want
            to ever remarry in any case), is important for all kinds of
            reasons. At this point, I think that I will always have money to live
            on, but a divorce will be a huge blow to my son. In any case, I have a
            certain amount of confidence that my wife wants to stay married to me
            (and I know that I want to stay married to her), even if I work 50 hour
            weeks. Obviously, intentions change etc. Anyhow, the recruiter is not
            calling so perhaps I asked for too much, and that is fine with me.

                Before you take it, you might want to read something like _The
                Not-So-Big House_, <http://www.notsobighouse.com/>, which says sensible
                things about the drive for "bigger" while neglecting "better".

                You'll make more money, but will you be doing better work?

                *

                One option you haven't mentioned is moving closer to work. I used to
                commute 42 miles each way; now I commute less than one, and usually
                walk.

                It's like getting 10 extra hours of life every week, and the commute
                is a pleasure instead of a chore.

                There is no way I would commute a long distance again. I know how
                horrible it is to move, but moving is eventually over. Commuting 10
                hours a week can last for years, or decades.

                        Okay, I've stayed out of this because I really think that this is a very
                        personal choice with lots of factors only Iggie can address, BUT... when we
                        start talking about divorce as a result of a 50 hour week, I have to step in.

                        My husband leaves the house at 7:45 each morning. Between work and commute, he
                        typically gets home sometime between 7 and 9. We accept that our workweek is
                        limited to work (and in my case, work and child care stuff). We have a maid
                        come in every couple of weeks. We have someone else do the big annual
                        yardwork, and bought a RoboMower to do the grass cutting a couple of times a
                        week.

                        We've chosen this life. In exchange, we have a mountain house that we get away
                        to on weekends. We are are travelling as we wish. with DH and I heading to
                        Vegas for spring break, and the whole family going on an Alaskan cruise in
                        July. I don't have to worry if DD wants to take up the expensive sport of ice
                        skating, or if DS wants to purchase hard cover books in the series he is
                        reading.

                        Because we've made this choice, we accept the downsides. A fifty-hour week is
                        NOT a death toll for a marriage.
