A new trend may be impacting Nebraska families and elsewhere. Mayflower moving recently conducted a study and Melissa Sullivan, Director of Marketing Communications says they are seeing more families move for the wife’s job.
Sullivan says their survey shows that nearly half of all Americans know at least one family who moved into the last five years for the wife’s job and almost 90% believe that relocating for the woman is more common than five year’s ago. The survey also shows 45% believe the spouses should take turns in their career and not just locate for the husband’s position. She says another 40% state the woman makes the same amount of money – or more- than their husband.
Sullivan says it is also more convenient for families to move without one spouse losing a job because of technology and work can easily be done at home.
