businessman

 

 

Bob is a businessman. He works for a manufacturer and travels a lot. He doesn't like to be away from his family, but traveling is a necessary part of his job. He wants to get a different job so that he can stay home more often with his wife and kids.

Bob has three daughters and two sons. It's a big family.  His wife, Susan, doesn't work outside the home right now because their children are all under the age of eight. They have a small three-bedroom house, and they hope to move into a new, larger house soon.
