    FI’s job is 9-5. My job is mainly days, but once in a while there are spurts when I have to work overnight. The overnights are almost over though! We would really miss each other a lot when I had to do a night float stint.

    crisy003:  I’m a teacher so I end at 2:45 (I leave for work at 6:20 though because I have extra help every morning at 7:30 so I don’t have to stay after) – but I get summers and a bunch of holidays off. My husband works 8:30 – 5:00 (but he lives 10 minutes away! lucky him!!!).

    My husband works regular office hours M-F and I am a Stay-At-Home Wife (soon to be SAHM).  He gets home between 5:30pm-6:00pm each evening and I get the house work done while he’s away so we always have evenings and weekends to ourselves.

    We both work 7 day rotating rosters, which means we can work anywhere from 6am to 10pm, with 10 – 14 hour shifts.

    We work for the same company, but the guy who does the roster must hate us because we are always only conflicting rosters, so we go days without seeing each other, even though we live together. If I start at 6am till 5pm, Fiance will have the 12pm to 10pm shift, so he is asleep when i leave and I am asleep when he gets home.

    It really sucks and unless the rosters change I don’t know how much longer I will be able to do it for. I really envy people with 9-5 jobs.

    ETA: We are not in the same work location, so we don’t actually see each other at work.

    I’m a non-profit fundraiser to I typically work 9:00 – 5:00 pm Monday to Friday. My Fiance is a lawyer who works for himself so he tends to work 8:30 to 5:30 pm and some evenings and Sundays if he has a lot of clients at the time.

    I’m a teacher so 7:30-4:15PM M-F. Darling Husband is a RN at the heart hospital and works 7am-7pm about 3-4 days a week. He use to work nights, but we like being able to spend time together so he switched to days about a year ago. We have dinner together everynight and even though he works some weekends – we always go on date night when he doesn’t work one. I think we lucked out pretty well schedule wise. The night shift killed our time together.
