How about a thread about the two-body problem? The old one had some really good tips. Even if the spouse is not an academic, this is such an important topic for academics with families. For me, it was really tough finding work after we relocated twice for my husband's job. Even thought I am a higher edu professional, my uni doesn't have support for spouses and I had to interview just like everyone. That is one of the hardest parts of being married to an academic. You have to move to a new place, start all over, support their career, and you have to try to find a job that pays the bills in the middle of nowhere without knowing a soul.
