Everybody wants to get on with the rest of their life and be a "real adult," whatever that means. There are two major ways we do that: through our work and through our relationships. A stalled career might be pushing your lady to focus a bit too intensely on the domestic life. Throwing your support behind her hopes and dreams will likely have two major positive effects: Your lady will have a newfound sense of purpose and you'll show her that you are capable of being supportive and mature. Most men have to work pretty hard to be anything but self-centered and childish, so any display of support for her goals, from helping her pay for classes to proofreading her resumé, can go a long way.
