Spending time with your partner...

  1. 27
    A successful relationship is one where you find time for each other. As a nurse you know that is sometimes difficult to do. The hours are long and the stress is up the roof.

    My husband and I have worked shiftwork just about our entire marriage. We claim it's why we've lasted as long as we have, we don't spend enough time together to get sick of each other.

    We try to make the most of the time we have - by not fighting and finding something we both enjoy. Sometimes my husband (of 23 years) will make us a nice dinner or we will watch a favorite TV show we have recorded. He is my biggest supporter and I could not do this without his support.

    Maybe I'm not working hard enough because even in nursing school I always felt like I got quality time with my husband.

    Am I the only one who feels like I get a lot of time off being a nurse?

    My wife (not a nurse) has put up with me rather well over my years as a RN and before. My work has always consisted of rather strange hours and shifts, but we make time to spend together, even if it is a few hours or less on the motorcycle, riding around a nearby lake, grabbing dinner out somewhere (although she cooks far better than any restaurant at which we have ever dined).

    When we first met and later married, she knew the deal from the beginning - my work would take me away from home every day, and sometimes I would be away for several days or weeks, but we still made time to spend together.

    The standing joke is that we often communicate by e-mail . Once she retires (eight weeks and she is counting), we may have more time together; once I retire, we will have plenty of time together, but that will not be for a few more years.

    Make the time to be with your spouse, partner, etc. - you will have fewer regrets later in life.
