Hello all, I'm looking for ideas for a secondary character's job. I normally don't have trouble in the idea department, but I've been thinking on this for some time and haven't come up with anything I really like. I'm hoping maybe someone here might be able to suggest something I haven't considered. Here is the gist of it: He is gay, and he goes to great lengths to hide this from his parents. They are the types that would freak out and disown him if they found out. He's even married to his best friend to keep up appearances. He works for his parents in some capacity, and his career is very much tied to them. I'm not opposed to him being college educated, but it needs to be difficult, if not impossible, for him to achieve the same kind of success on his own. Basically, he keeps the secret, or he loses his family and his career in one swoop. Also, the setting is a small town, so big-city-executive jobs are out of the question. I've considered making him a lawyer, or maybe a doctor, but it seems like he could easily succeed without his parents in these ventures. I thought maybe they could own a factory, something he would inherit, but I don't know if a person would go to such extremes in order to own a factory... someday. Any thoughts?
