You betcha! Hubby is starting his Master’s this summer, and I have one more year of my Education degree. We’re going to live in married quarters on campus so he can come home for dinner.

I’ve thought about it a lot, and especially in practicum, the key is going to be to split chores evenly, cook doubles and freeze half, and be okay with the house being a little messy. Try to make date nights at least twice a night and actually talk. We have a rule that we need to try to have dinner together whenever possible. 

 

Maybe that helps?

I feel your pain… I will be in the final year of my PhD when we get married… I would really like him to do more around the house during that year, but his pay is what keeps us above water (my pay is just about OK for paying half of the very basics, but if we want to eat anything other than the cheapest food, or to do non-emergency/non-commuting to or from work travel, he pays because I simply can’t afford it). I feel lilke I can’t really ask him to do more… plus we work different schedules…

I don’t know the answer here… if you find out then please tell me!

Yes! We got married my senior year of undergrad. My social life suffered a bit, but my grades were great and it was totally worth it! 🙂

ME! I got married right before my 3rd semester of nurisng school (aka the semster from hell!). It was hard, especially because Darling Husband was NOT a house keeper and his job meant he was up at 0500 every morning. The biggest thing is divide up housework, work on time management even more, your a nurisng student so its vital already and now even more because your husband does still need to see you! It is different than lots of people but it is still worth it.

I graduated in January and the wedding was in February. So the wedding was about 3 weeks after I finished (and I was working full time) so the whole planning process was while I was in school. It was honestly very difficult, the only time I could get wedding stuff done was at night and so my school work took a hit. I got all A’s in the end, but I definitely had a mad rush toward the end and a bunch of skipped classes under my belt. I guess the best advice I can give is to try and remember that school needs to be a top priority, if not the top. (I was focusing a lot more on work over school also because balancing all three was really difficult.)

No tips ’cause we’re not married yet, but I’ll be in my senior year of undergrad when we get married. I’ll either graduate two months after the wedding or nine months afterwards, depending on whether I decide to take an extra semester to improve my fluency in spanish.
