H has been in the Navy for over 2 years now, training to be a nuclear engineer. He is 3 weeks away from taking his final exam to be a reactor operator and 7 weeks away from graduating. This morning H had a meltdown, saying he wasn't sure that he made the right choice in choosing this program and he doesn't want to do this for 4 more years. Should he drop out of the program now he would be a conventional engineer (which he isn't sure he would be happy doing either), lose his hefty enlistment bonus, could get demoted and we would have no say as to where we would get stationed. I think if he dropped out now he would regret it, and I think he should finish what he has worked so hard for buuuut I want him to be happy in what he is doing. If he is miserable our marriage will be strained.
Has anyone else experienced their H having regrets about their job of choice? How did you handle it?
