For all of the job changes (9) that I have made, my wife and I discussed each and every one in great detail before we decided to make the change. My wife and I have been together since we met in Honolulu, Hawaii, August 1970 and were married in Honolulu, Hawaii in December 1970. I can not think of any reason why I would even consider leaving her.

That's wonderful and admirable. However, the situation you describe - nine job changes in 35 (25?) years, most with positive financial outcomes - is not quite the same as Nerokitty's. Her husband has changed jobs 9 times in 10 years, without good financial benefits, and she's stuck with him through tough times. You and your wife discussed, and were presumably in agreement on, all your moves in advance, another significant difference.

FYI, here are two subsequent posts about her situation (which has positive resolution, I'm happy to say).

All relationships are different, and seek their own levels.
