How to Handle Professional Rivalry with your Spouse

Photo credit to newlight2

It is common for some college schoolmates end up marrying each another. This is because they have one thing in common, their interest in the same profession. Doctors, lawyers, and engineers are some of the professionals who have their spouses in the same field of work. Although this is advantageous to a relationship, here are some problems that may arise and what to do about it.

Professional Jealousy

Time may come that one of you will be promoted to a higher position and it may create a professional jealousy somehow. This problem often happens when the wife got promoted first. If this happens, it does not mean that the husband is a loser, it means you are a good inspiration to your wife. It is this time that she needs more support from you. Getting promoted means greater responsibilities.

Hi, finally and finally, I have got an entrecard. I am getting emails asking me to accept/reject ads. I am visiting their sites and accepting or rejecting accordingly. What else has to be done?

This article of yours has made a good reading..... but this is an age old problem. Why only with work, with every little issue, ego problems come in between spouses. High salary, high socialising, popularity...... you will find in a couple, one obviously has all these and the other does not. The more we try to solve such problems, the more we land in unnecessarily added problems.

Very interesting.

The longer I work the more I want to stay home and be a house wife. It's so totally against everything I was raised to do. And I think if it ever got to the point where I made more than hubby he'd love if I stayed home. :) As long as I make less he wants me to keep working. *sigh*

Hi Aisha,

Thanks for agreeing with me. I paid a visit to your blogs and they seem to be interesting. However, I have a suggestion if you'll allow me.

Please avoid having dark background and different font colors. I am being blinded and I am afraid others are also feeling the same. You might be driving your readers away without your knowledge.

Anyway, I included your Leaf Float Down River blog on the list of my Serious Droppers on my other blog - Humane Blogging Tips. It's no. 221, the last one.

Hope you find it. Thanks.
