Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
it will 100% be a tough challenge, but its short term and your partner has to understand. once you get an amazing job after you can shower them with gifts too
I feel if you have to explain then it's gonna be more difficult, understanding should come from within otherwise you will end up spending too much of energy on those futile discussions. Once is easy to say and hard to understand bro, esp. if you got hitched up recently (say less than one year!)
whether to concentrate on the wife(as it is the best time for such a relationship) or on studies(as it is the best time for studies too)
situation will be worst if your wife dosent have a job she is gonna miss you in the day time too ........ so atleast wife should have a job and she should have a mindset that this year is going to be difficult for both of them
It will be difficult for an Indian wife to adjust. I m sure people outside India have been following this since long.
The great Indian wife- sticking point in my case
Getting married this Sept, planning on starting my MBA fall of 13. The future wife has her dream job right now in boston... but I dont have much of a shot at HBS or MIT... so, we need to decided do I A) Go to a regional School B) live apart C) let her leave a job she loves...
Pretty tough trying to decide where to apply when these questions aren't answered.
I'm married with kids and i'll start the mba journey this fall. As for balancing everything - my wife is a stay at home mom and i won't be gone every week on travel (yay for consulting) so i *think* it'll be pretty easy for us.
I'm at the age where my friends and family would like to see me married. But as you can guess, contemplating an MBA and you realise you can really only have one of those really expensive things (cynical? yes, a wife is expensive).
Personally I work in a job where I am home for may be 6-8 hours max, if I'm lucky. In such circumstances its neither fare to subject your other half to such torture since he/she will have needs or will your marriage last longer than Kim Kardashian's.
If you are thinking about your MBA constantly, you want that M. Don't think you need to have the wife. Conversely if you think about a wife and kids more than you think about a very expensive piece of paper and a golden rolodex, get hitched.
I think it's not impossible to manage a marriage and a MBA at the same time but I feel it's important for both partners to understand completely and to agree to what they are signing up for. It's important to have your expectations aligned. Secondly I think it helps for both the partners to be busy, if one isn't working etc then they will definitely feel a bit left out or bored. Lastly I feel this arrangement works better if you aren't recently married or in a new relationship. If two people have been together for a long time then they understand and know how to manage each other.
Like I said before not impossible but patience and determination is the key here.
Now officially married (a little over a month) and finished submitting round 1 apps.
Make sure your wife or fiancee (not both, that could get you in trouble) goes to information sessions and campus visits with you. The schools themselves did a much better job selling to her then I could have ever done. They have convinced my urbanite hipster of a wife, that a 2 year break in middle of nowhere NH, upstate NY, or even NC is a good idea... (Bloomington, Indiana did not do a good job of this lol)
About taking classes, some programs allow partners to audit classes, I know for sure Tuck does, IDK who else does
The bolded reply of your is worth the GOLD..
