Optimally he needs to keep his previous plans of a date night and having dinner...Even if it means losing an extra hour or two of sleep now and then.
I worked full time with full time school for five years with a family. My sleep is what I had to compromise once in a while to get my quality studying in ( early am) and to be able to free up evenings with my family then stay up if needed.
Family time and nurturing our marriage are extremely important for balance in all other areas.
My priorities are what I live by, that is God first then my marriage, family, career... But that's my success formula... It worked great for me.
I wish you the best, hang in there, it really will be over before you know it!! And it is a super intense program, you do have to apply yourself 100% to make it to the finish line, but not while neglecting your friends and family too. Praying for balance over you all! : yes:
