i am still in school. i think its just a sacrafice you may have to make.  i waitress 5 days a week and go to school full time. fi works full time, and while we could make it on his salary alone, i want the kind of wedding that i want, and i like to go out and go shopping etc. so i work as well. anyways, i dont think its unreasonable, you just have to find a balance ๐Ÿ™‚

Is there a way you can move half way?

Another option: While my FH is able to move to whatever city I end up in for my graduate and postgraduate work, I know a couple where the husband works in a college town 2-3 hours south of here and the wife drives the distance between everyday to go my university (who has a better program for her.) I have a professor who does the same thing but she lives in a college town 4 hours in the oppossite direction. It’s a pain but if it’s finacially feasible you wouldn’t have to pay rent on two places (just the gas to drive back and forth).

Do you have to go full time in your graduate program?  I am getting my MBA right now but my classes are only at night so I work a full time job too.  If not, I agree about considering living halfway in between since you probably won’t be able to support two households on only one income.

I have several friends who got married while in college long distance – not one of them graduated. It’s hard enough being in a relationship ldr, but marriage? I’d wait it out. We were in an LDR for 5 years, and are finally getting married in January (now that we’re NOT LDR)

My Fiance is in NY (where he moved when his family came to the US) in nursing school and working full-time at a hospital and I live in TN and am in undergrad for pre-med and I work full-time as a correctional officer at a prison.  We will be married next year while I am in school.  It is possible to get married while in school but can be stressful and requires a lot of time and work you may not have.

I’m still in school and he’s in the army.  We aren’t getting married for a year but when we do I will still be in school in florida for another year and he will be back at his base in upstate new york.  So basically we won’t get to see eachother.  It’s not ideal, but I can’t wait to call him my husband even if it means we can’t live together for the first year of our marraige.  I mean, either way you have to live apart, so just do what you’re comfortable with.  And honestly, an hour isn’t that bad.  You could see each other every single weekend.   I realize that is still not an ideal marriage set up, but it’s not ideal for a relationship in general either.  Also, the half way idea is a really awesome Idea!
