Good point! Better change her mind quick rather than later when you have kids!

If it is a general sort of position then going back on your word has less repercussions. But if it is a niche industry where the players are few and you might actually cross paths with your erstwhile employers then think hard. You would be known as a not-very-reliable person who doesn't stick to his/her word.

Be rational. Don't waste your time working in a company because you feel obliged to do so.

There will be caveats and conditiosn in the appointment letter as well, such as 2 week termination before confirmation, etc...
So, they know they cannot keep you.
So, the best position is really to call the HR and explain in a very nice way why...NEVER use $$ as a reason even if it is!
