    Everything depends purely upon you and your employment history. If you teach the right subjects it becomes much easier looking for a job.
    I have a non-working spouse with two young children and it has not been a problem finding jobs. I just avoid those schools which I feel cannot afford paying for me and three dependents.
    For those with dependents - don't give up!!
  4. As one half of a teaching couple I have seen this from both sides, as I believe it has been to our advantage so far.
    On the other side, I prefer to employ couples; reduced housing costs and more likely to stay for longer than singles. But as others have said, it depends on your subjects, your experience.

    If you both have the subjects the school is looking for AND you both have a good record and tick the right boxes you are a benefit to the school.
    If you do not offer the right subject combination OR one of you isn't up to standard, then it will be a negative.

    Simple as that! Happy New Year Everyone!
