6) You are Group-A Central Government employee and your wife is also Class-I Gazetted Medical Officer in State Govt. You are married since 5 years and your daughter is about to turn 2 years this month. Since last 5 years, you have not been staying together consistently as you and your wife’s place of postings are in separate places. All these years your daughter is staying with your wife. Now and then you meet both of them, stay for a day and the report back to duty. Lately you have been thinking whether this is the right way of living. You are worried about your family’s future. Your parents and relatives think there is no point living like this. You and your wife do not want to leave secure government jobs as well. Even though you have tried your best, it seems impossible to get posted near your wife’s work place as her job is entirely different than yours.
