I just read on MSN.com that one thing men to steer away from in women...is to stay away from a relationship with a nurse. "After a long 12 hour shift, there isn't much time left for love and caring at home". I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm 43 years old and am definately, totally exhausted and am running on fumes by the time I get home. I became an RN in my early 20's and had a lovely marriage sour after several years. I can honestly say that my occupation was hazardous to my marriage. What about the rest of you? Any contributing factors or solutions?

Is it the job hazardous to the relationship or the choices we make in partners?

Bothe Rns here and married 17years. Both Trauma nurses and met while working in Southern California. I have worked in administrative positions so weekend and holidays were not split. It has its toll on each of us but must say building my own business has been a greater strain than anything else. Purhaps because I am doing this while weeding her hours down and weaning myself from Hospital Nursing.

SO purhaps it is the partners we choose trather than the ocupations we share.

Just my two cents

I've been married for almost 24 years and yes - my career has resulted (sometimes) in my husband having to do more than his fair share. However, he was a career military man (23 years in the Air Force - retired in 1995) and I did more than my fair share sometimes too - lol. It all works out in the end. I love my husband more than anything in the world!
