Looking for opinions here...DH could apply & have a good shot at getting a new job. It would at least double his income but would also mean more working hours, especially in the winter compared to what he is doing now. We will have our home paid off & be debt free in Dec., so we really don't need the extra income. I've worked full-time at the same job for over 28 years & get 4 weeks vacay every year & I look forward to using that either in one nice vacay every year and/or using a few days here & there for long weekend getaways. The job my DH currently has enables us to take the time off. The new job would require him to work to build up some vacation time. We have our health insurance 100% provided by my employer so he would not need the benefits offered with this new job. However, the new job would provide some retirement for the future.
I know ultimately it is my DH's decision, but I think he should keep the job he has & this job opening will provide a nice job for a person/family that could benefit from it more & needs the job. What do you guys think? It would enable us to save more for retirement by making more $, but we have quite a bit saved already. Also, I would like to start investing in some rentals with the extra $ we have, but do it with cash & if he was making more we could accomplish that quicker...
Thanks for your input.
