This is a sign-on-the-dotted line kind of contractual obligation. It's an academic program that ends on date certain, and I have active responsibilities up through the day before I leave.
I suppose, if there were a crisis, I could break the obligation. But what, in all honesty, could I tell the program director about this situation?
"I need to go home early so my wife can go travelling with her boyfriend in Germany . . ."
I'm sure that would go over well.
