  • There isn't much - I don't consider stripping or being a drag queen or king degrading. I think prostitution is pretty much the only thing. It's not my choice, it's his. What makes him happy may not make me happy, but it won't make me UNhappy.

  • Anything that makes them unhappy... If they are happy, I don't care what they do.

  • Anything illegal. Otherwise, whatever makes him happy...working for a ton of money isn't always an option. You could be in a job that makes tons of money, be miserable, have a heart attack and die from the stress...then what was the point of making a lot of money? The way I see it, it isn't about what I want or what will make me happy, it is about that for him. It is his life and his choice.

  • I would say: Mafia, Assassin, or any profession if his sole desire is money, fame and fortune.
