Which one does marriage make you?

success, politicianTheStreet.com published an interesting piece on whether marriage helps or hurts an individual’s career. Turns out, the only professions in which a spouse is beneficial are clergymen, judges, police officers, and drumroll...politicians. [Insert Eliot Spitzer joke here.]

Apparently, a stable home life increases the likelihood for success. [Proceed to beat dead horse and insert follow-up Spitzer joke here.]

And said jobs wield the perfect power: If the marriage doesn’t pan out for any of the above, they can divorce, annul, or just plain sweep it under the rug.
