when dating or in a relationship, does their job matter? have you decided not to pursue a person because of their job? have you broken up with someone because of their career? what professions and why would put an end to a relationship for you?

From a relationship coaches perspective, I will just add that I've had male and female clients that told me that they wouldn't date someone, depending on the job they had. But, it was less about the 'type' of job and more about the age of the person in the job and what they job said about their level of effort and ambition. Women especially can look at a guys job, tie it to a level of effort/ambition and make the leap that the same level of effort/ambition likely carries over to his role as a boyfriend and future husband.1

It depends on what you're seeking. If marriage is the goal, then YES. A job does matter. Just like anything else in this world. If you don't work, you don't eat. You want things in life, let alone do things that cost money, then having a job is essential. However, there is a point and time one may not find work so quickly or circumstances prevent's them to. It simply matters what is most important to you and what qualifies them to date you. I would not agree with a job that goes against my moral belief's. But at that point, anything that goes against what you don't believe or can't handle the relationship just needs to cease.0
