non-EU Spouse with Job Offer, EU spouse not looking to be employed

Hi,
I have a question about a non-EU spouse moving as a dependent of EU citizen. I am a non-EU citizen. My wife is a German citizen. I have a job offer from Switzerland and my employer is applying for my L permit. However, it will be better for us to move as a dependent of my EU wife.

Problem is that she does not have any job offer and due to a medical condition is also not looking to work in the next 6 months. Also it seems that I can become dependent on her only after she gets her B permit.

Lots of related Questions:
Is it possible for my wife to get a B-permit without a job. Most websites say, yes, but she needs to show sufficient means to sustain herself in Switzerland. Question is what are considered as "sufficient means"? Can she use my Job Offer in Switzerland to show for sufficient means? If yes, can she use my job offer before I get my L permit or after I get my L permit and start working in Switzerland. Finally, can she use my current salary in US to get her resident permit (before my L permit gets approved and I start receiving the Swiss salary/health insurance)?

I understand that this is a bit convoluted issue. But the simple question is just what is needed for an EU person to show as proof that s/he can sustain herself in Switzerland.

Thank you.

...and while you are waiting for someone to work that all out for you, perhaps you'd like to tell us a little bit about yourself in the Introductions forum or fill in a few details in your profile. We like to know who we are working for.

Ah, I forgot, welcome to the Forum.

I'd worked some of that out but some folk say in a proper intro that they like skiing, or music, or are looking forward to meeting all the members here in real life.

Not that I'm very nosey or anything but...
Back to Federer and Djokovic now anyway.

Re: non-EU Spouse with Job Offer, EU spouse not looking to be employed

I would be interested in hearing the answer to this question as I would like to do the same thing (would prefer to have my own visa for personal reasons).
Actually, I'm in pretty much the exact same position as the OP, but my husband is a primary school teacher and doesn't speak French and will need time to secure an international school role. He'll be a job seeker I guess.
In the meantime though, I'll have a role immediately (I'm also the bread winner here in Australia).
I'm Australian, my husband is British. Can we get a permit b this way?
Thanks in advance...
