Sex and Nursing School

  1. 5 Has your sex life dwindled since beginning Nursing School. My husband says he is stressed out with work. We have a great relationship, rarely argue, hold hands plenty but no sex. I really think that me studying all the time is the problem, like the lack of time we used to have. Once I am done studying I am totally ready to go but he just wants to go to bed (to sleep). Anytbody else have a similar problem?

    He'll definitely be cheating on you soon. JK. Things like that can always happen when people are busy/stressed. It may not be romantic, but sometimes you have to actually plan ahead of time for romantic time so that everything can be squared away and people can be prepared.

    yeah, it definately has. my girlfriends and i from class were just talking about this the other day. nursing school definately puts a huge gap in your life, love life, social life, personal life, family life... only 3 months and 10 days left until graduation... *sigh*

    Interesting thread.

    But a bit on the personal side, don't you think?

    we've had too much of that going on in our class. one married woman hooked up with a much younger male student, who left his cell phone in her car, hubby found it and he was out of school for a week to recover from his injuries. also have another set of "study buddies" in class that are now expecting their first child together (oops!)

    Wow, do you think you can get a little more negative? You have no idea what is going on with this man so how can you say for a fact he is going to cheat on his wife. You may be correct or you may not. Why do you want to upset this person who is already under stress? Do you think yours is a helpful attitude? The man may have issues of his own he is dealing with that have nothing to do with cheating on his wife or her being in nursing school.

    "But a bit on the personal side, don't you think?"

    Maybe this person is looking for help and wants to talk things over a little. I hazard to guess she is not the only person who has had this problem while in school.

    Yes of course, good point.

    I just don't think the internet is always as anonymous and we would like it to be.

    Best,

    It is a personal issue but some people are more comfortable discussing it than others. I think it is a valid concern.

    I agree with the above poster that said that you have to plan it. You have to make time for each other. It isn't all about sex, though that is important. Make sure you are spending time together and fulfilling other needs as well. This is something that my DH and I already have to work on since he is a truck driver and is gone all week. It's about prioritizing, making time for everyone. So last night, instead of doing my Statistics, I sat down and watched a movie with him. So I'm up this morning working on what I would have done last night. The world didn't stop turning because I took the evening off from studying.

    I'm in an accelerated program, and I feel the same way. My boyfriend and I have been together for 2 years, and are totally in love, but during the week I rarely have time to do anything but study or collapse. We're working on it though - and that's "work" I really enjoy.
    Nothing like a half hour "study break" at home.

    Thanks OP, for bringing up a very important topic. We're all adults, and as we know, healthy sexuality (however you define it) is an important part of life.
