Everyday we make decisions, about our lives, which could potentially affect our de facto. Choices like our job, our living arrangements, even the food we eat.
The fact is you must be willing to compromise yourself for someone else. I've had the dream of working in the snow since I was 6 years old. I thought it was the dream job of all time. Now in my late 20's I have finally got the opportunity to fulfil that dream.
The down side is I would be without my de facto for several weeks if not months. To make it work, I'm trying to get him a placement there too! He is an entertainer, and I have got an interview for a ticketing position.
Always consider your de facto when making the big decisions. Include them when you can, and if you can't find a way to make it work.
