Wow - great thread!
My SO is an art teacher who is currently not working as one b/c of budget cuts. He is in a job he doesn't like and we are desperately hoping he finds a teaching job when we move for me to go to law school. If he doesn't, it will make life even harder for us.
He has been incredibly supportive (before we even moved in together, he told me he would follow me wherever I went - except for Utah), but I worry about what's going to happen when things get really stressful. He is a very low key, mellow artist type and I am a high key, energetic, almost hyper person. It has worked well so far, but it bugs me that he doesn't want to discuss the odds of me getting into this school vs. that one, etc.
Tea's post was great and I am going to show him this thread so he can see that he won't be alone. As a matter of fact, as soon as I get accepted and make a final decision on a school, I am going to contact the school and start a group for the spouses.
Good luck to all of you!
