    My husband works 24 hour on, 48 hours off and now I work M-F days. But for many years, I worked 12 hour shifts on the days that he was off due to having kids at home.

It does seem to work when you have a little time to yourself but I also think you have to have a strong friendship and relationship to make it work. It can be done!

    There are a lot of married couples who work different shifts. If it causes major problems, then there are other major problems in the relationship. This is the real world. The days of being able to survive on one income are over. My husband doesn't like that we work different shifts, but we just have to suck it up and do it. Because let's be honest, jobs aren't easy to come by. I was very lucky to even get my job. Some of us (new grads) are just glad to have jobs. We have no choice but to work nights. So the choices for some of us are work different shifts and be able to survive, or not work just because we can't find day shift jobs and live in poverty. Not too hard to pick.

    These are articles. Not research studies.
    You know what? I am a very busy person....however I feel compelled to point out that based upon your comment it is obvious that you could not bother to click on the links that I provided.

    These articles reference several peer reviewed studies.

    As I have said before, if I said water was wet you would friggen argue with me...

    Now if you will excuse me I am going to go back to being productive.

    I would think the stress of not having a job and not being able to pay the bills would put far greater stress on a marriage.

    You are thinking of someone else. We have seldom interacted here.

    I did click on the articles.
