When professors move to accept academic positions, there is an effect on their marriages and families. Once established in the new locations, these same professors pass through predictable stages that set them up for still further moves. Each move raises expectations of the perfect job in the perfect place. Each move also becomes more complicated. This article describes the personal experience of professors and their families.
