to work for husband
I have a possible oppurtunity to work for my husband in the future and learn bookkeeping which is what I have always wanted. I know it is not always the best option to work with ones spouse but I have tried for years to get another job without any success. I am getting no where and my current job is so boring with no hope of improving. Is it worth the risk? I really want to learn a useful skill and I believe it will give me a better chance of getting a betterjob one day.

There can be advantages and disadvantages --- but right now, compared with no immediate better job prospects, it could work out for the better. Learning a new skill is always worth it and gains you improved chances of finding a better job later on. But as Frusty and others say, talk it over with him and set very clear ground rules about what you do and don't do, and how the job will work.
