Answers:

Sometimes when you are at a job long enough(to qualify for a pension and/or a 401k) it just becomes too expensive to quit. A second job might be a good way to pick up extra cash. And if the 2nd job pays well, you can use the first job to contribute more money Into the 401k and rely more on the 2nd one for spending money.

This is where second jobs come into play.

Benefits and pension are part of your job though. Thats a big thing. You could lower your 401k some but make sure you put in up to the % of whatever the company matches (if any).

Either or both of you could pursue some online classes. Being envious of your 'spendy' friends is going to get you nowhere. What you should do is sit down and actually add up how much dollar value those benefits have. You might be surprised.

First, a rough patch in your marriage will not be improved by a better-paying job. Indeed, a new job brings new stresses and quite possibly more time working. You need to separate your relationship problems from your financial ones.

As others have pointed out, a higher-paying job likely brings longer hours, and there's no guarantee you'll like the work or the people better. I've been in HR for more than 35 years, and I've rarely seen people be happy who chased a salary. Happy people pursue work that they find meaningful and enjoyable. If you don't like your current work, look for work that's satisfying.

Do you have a question?

So what do these people do that make so much more? Anything catch your interest? Are you willing to work 70 hours a week? Do they work week ends?

I wouldn't waste all that money on a master's unless it was a means to an end....a goal. Don't go just to go ... What peaks your interest? Being a lawyer? A doctor? Those all require long hours ....are you going to be ok working twice as hard ? And giving up your prescious time?

My friend had the same issues. She went to work at a big car company got her master's and did ok for herself.
