Megan,

I'm interested in you observation that more women with PhD's are
UNABLE to move because of their husbands' jobs than men because of
their wives' jobs.  Is this because of woman with a PhD is more likely
to be married to a man with a PhD than the other way around?  Or could
this be the result of the ingrained belief (it was certainly ingrained
into me) that a man is never expected to sacrifice his career for his
wife's?  Or something else?
