What are some ways to support your partner’s career?

Cupid’s Advice:

Even if you don’t fully understand your significant other’s career, it’s important to show your support.  Cupid has some ways to do just that:

1. Be there: Be aware of your mate’s career moves and changes so that you can support and encourage them each step of the way.  Pep talks at the right times certainly couldn’t hurt.

2. Promote relaxation: Help your partner take their mind off of hectic or stressful times at work by doing something fun.  Theme parks, movie theatres, or even a short interlude at a coffee shop like Karolyn Pho and Shia Labeouf work great.

3. Show understanding: If your partner has a chaotic job, they may not always be home on time, or they may have to travel a lot.  Be willing to travel with your partner, and if that’s not possible, make the time you have with them count.  Whatever you do, don’t make them feel guilty.
