I'm relocating with my wife this summer for a (hopefully) partner-track PE role, to a city neither of us are too familiar with, but within driving distance to her family. She initially thought she'd be able to transfer with her current company, but it doesn't seem like there's going to be a spot. We both agree that eventually she's going to stop working when we have a family, and so we're willing to move and invest in my career. But right now she has a career track job with a good firm and it's incredibly stressful for her to uproot that security and have to find something else. I've been told relocating with a SO is one of the hardest things you'll deal with, but I'm still finding it incredibly strenuous on our overall well being, and I'm not even sure how to help!
Anyone else ever relocate with a spouse for career-purposes? How did it end up? How do you support your SO who's giving up their career so you can pursue yours?
