Did The Beckhams Moved Back To England For Victoria’s Career?

Hooray for mutually supportive marriages! You might remember that the catalyst for the Beckham clan’s move to the United States was David Beckham’s contract with the LA Galaxy soccer team (perhaps in a bid to make Americans care more about soccer, which has definitely failed. Landon Donovan, who?), which recently ended. But there was another reason for the Beckhams to go back across the pond besides the end of David’s time with the Galaxy — his wife’s supremely successful design career.
From The Sun:
An insider said: “Victoria couldn’t handle managing her lucrative fashion line from Los Angeles anymore because it’s based in London.
“Victoria was often up in the middle of the night having conference calls with her staff across the pond, and it just wore her down.
“She felt that she had sacrificed a lot for David by moving to California so he could pursue his soccer career with the Los Angeles Galaxy.”
The source continued on Radar Online: “David’s main role right now is supporting Victoria in getting the family settled back into life in London.
It’s pretty remarkable that Beckham was able to run her business and move to the United States to support her husband’s career, and also pretty great that Beckham is returning the favor now that his contract is over. Rather than both parties trying to “have it all,” it seems the Beckhams recognize that one component of a successful partnership between two very ambitious people is being willing to take turns supporting each other. We say good for them.
