My husband currently makes $110K a year. In a 2 income household we paid almost $30K in payroll taxes because of the tax bracket we are in due to us both working. He currently drives 75 miles each way to work a day because of his job, but we feel it pays well enough to justify it. We are currently evaluating him taking a lower paying job at around $65K that is 20 miles from the house each way. We know his take home will be less but we will save on gas and taxes, and he will be less stressed out beacuse it will be less responsibility but I feel like he will be limiting his career by taking a step back.
I don't care about the money so much as I do him hurting his career by stepping back. Would you encourage your husband to do that? He's not unhappy in his job currently so moving wouldn't make him more happy, just less of a commute really for less pay? He's been doing his current job for a year.
