The title says it all, so just respond to the question.

let's also include: occupied weekends, and regularly out of town planned business.

My dad attributes opposing shifts to his 25 year marriage to my step mother. They say it wouldn't have worked any other way.

Spongebob....I say the same thing about me and my ex-husband. We were married for 12 years. He goes to day shift ( I was already working days) and within a year we are divorced. We got along fine as long as I didn't have to see him all the time.

My ex was a stay at home mom, and I worked out of our home too... Um... I wouldn't recommend that situation for anyone.

"Always", my point of view on this great thread is it depends on the couple. What stage of life they are in and what type of people they are. , do they have children yet? Does the couple like having independance away from each other? Do they want to spend more time together in waking hours sharing hobbies, traveling and being home sweet home? Lots of questions due to everyone is different in character and what their wants and needs are. If the couple have every weekend together, will this satisfy the quantity and quality of the relationship? Would they independantly feel lonely? Will the relationship stay healthy and grow?

First and third shifts can actually work out fairly well together. You have "together" time in the evening for dinner, etc. Second shift...YOU'RE SCREWED! I worked second shift for about 8 years and never managed to have much of a life! If you work second...you must befriend/date other second shifters!

Note to self:
cross spongebob777 and Pete75032 off the list.
reason: difficult to be around for any length of time.
(also wondering if spongebob777 has a hole in that pocket)

1st shift and second shift can help with the child care thing. I know a couple that did this for many years and they are still together.

That is exactly what my Grandfather said at his and my grandmother's 50th.
"For 7 years we only talked to each other on the telephone".
