Without giving away too much info, of where she worked, I know she had a managerial job with a good company, she came in at the bottom and moved up quickly. I'm not sure if this is the job she lost recently, but there are jobs of this nature, all over. She is one of those people who will quit a job because of the job atmosphere, meaning, different place, sane stuff.
I'm also, not sure on how seriously, he is looking for a job either. I know at one point, he was going to school, and the job he had when he was here, is also one of those, dime-a-dozen jobs.
I also know that not long ago, even though he is out of work, they managed to take a fairly expensive vacation to entertain his kids from another relationship, as they were visiting him for the week, from out of state.
