Of course, you need to be very strategic about this. In , my then-boyfriend quit a job he hated without another one lined up, and it took a lot more time than either of us expected for him to find something new.

But as months passed, he got discouraged, and I did too. Then I felt guilty. After one particularly stressful workday, I freaked out and cried and told my boyfriend I was worried that we might never have enough money to send our children to college and retire the way I wanted — and we were both 25 and nowhere close to having kids.
