I think you should do the resume'. As an employer, I like to see all job experience both past and present. It helps present a skill set for the entire person, not just what I am specifically looking for. You also show that you are not a job jumper. Employers are reluctant to invest money in a new employee if you are going to leave in a year or two. If you have only had 3 jobs in the last twenty years, then that shows stability in your job life which employers are looking for. Good luck to you and your wife on finding a job.
