I think we set a pretty great example for our kids. We both had jobs we at least liked. At least until my wife died. Mine hasn’t been nearly as satisfying since then but it’s really because what I value has changed, more than anything else. I also cared for her through the long, slow death that is ALS. My kids got a first hand view of how seriously I took my marriage vows. It wasn’t a happy time, but it was real and it was, hopefully, the worst thing they’ll ever have to live through.
