I know how you feel kfairchild. I myself am having to make the same choice of either pursuing my career or my relationship. I'm 26, and I am working on getting my masters degree in green manufacturing. My situation is a little different in that I am already married, but the choice is still the same. My career or my relationship with my wife. I am beginning the process of getting placed for an internship, which means moving away. My wife already has a very good job working in finance, and is moving up the ladder. We may need to leave Virginia for my internship, but she said she is staying where her job is.
I am in full fledged crisis mode here. Just like the article mentioned; instability, isolation, frustration, and reassessment. These are the mark of my life currently. Did I get married too soon? What's more important? Should I sacrifice? Should she? Reassessment is an understatement for me right now. Much like you, the career/relationship dichotomy is my greatest uncertainly to date, and possibly my greatest regret. I pray this isn't the case. Only time will tell.
