Two definitions for you:-

1) A successful man: A man who earns more money than his wife can spend.

2) A successful woman: A woman who marries a successful man.

Marry a pilot? absolutely not. Dreadful people, narcissistic, bad teeth, egocentric, bad breath, arrogant and smell of poo and I are one.

I married a lawyer

Applies both way. Biggest mistake of my life. She and her ilk are the most of mankind.

Jeez, I scored on 3 of the top 5, military pilot, and police pilot. No wonder the marriage only lasted 27 years. Second one (to a newer model) is 21 years so far, and I am no longer in any of those categories any more. Phew!

Presumably it would be a safe bet to marry oneself?

I only ask because being told "Go F**k yourself!", I guess must be a near equivalent....

Married the Lawyer, and she earns considerably more than me now (by around 50%), and both been very happy together for 33 years, though we do spend a little time apart, which just make reunions more fun. I also get to shoot and fish, and use her very fast cars, but get told off for leaving the seat up !! Guess life's what you make it, and if you are lucky to find, not just your Wife / Husband, but also your best friend, then that also helps.

Cheers
Mr Mac

I’ll have been married for 45 years at the end of this year (same wife) and we’ve been together for 48 years. Must have got it right at our first attempt. She’s obviously very tolerant….

But then so am I.

Or, maybe I’m aware that no one else would be stupid enough to want to live with me….

She based her opinions on her history of a whopping 60 cases. That's not a very good sample size for statistical significance. Also, the fact that she's based in the city where the worlds busiest airport is located (large population of pilots) would certainly introduce sampling bias.

Yeah right. The only thing I'm in control of is the seat height of the right side seat

From acquaintances, being away due for work can cause issues in relationships, especially if dependents are involved. The stay home half thinks the away half is on some type of holiday whilst they hold the fort and the away half think they are doing/earning whilst the stay home half enjoys the fruits of their labour. For pilots the crushing fatigue of jet-lag makes the away time less appealing for the love of flying. Perhaps in years gone by 3-week tours down to Australia/Orient were to be coveted by pilots, but not so great for those at home.

For those who have been together for decades in harmony, I tip my cap, shining examples of what can be when people are on the same page so to say, but for the majority it will be shades of grey from there to the gate of hell. The psychological aspects of personalities will mean different dynamics for everyone, the relationship that 'works' for them wouldn't work for me and vice-versa. Some of the dynamics make my toes curl, I couldn't stand it, yet for them it works. Some of the best relationships I've witnessed were where the partners left their work at the front door, positions and responsibilities of no import once home, just being husband/wife/dad/mum etc etc.

Or we could always just get a dog/cat/whatever and live life as a person who identifies as single ;-)

The one thing that almost drove me to divorce was a place in the house known as “The Broken Shelf” (TBS).
I was based 150 miles from home at the time and was only able to drive home late on Friday evenings, often not arriving till near bedtime. I had to drive back on Sunday afternoons. On arrival at home I was faced with “TBS”.

The shelf itself wasn’t broken; the stuff placed on it was. Often there were three or four items that I was expected to have fixed before leaving 36 hours later. These could range from the handle knocked off a brand new china mug or two to an electrical or electronic object (which had been broken by someone not reading the instructions - manuals were normally thrown away with the packaging or just lost because men are just supposed to know how things work).

I usually arrived home worn out but immediately had to listen to all the bad things that had happened at home that week, almost it seemed, in real time. I was seldom asked how my week had gone, let alone the 4 hour long drive home. Not very happy days, tbh but we survived and thankfully these days are a bit more understanding of the other half’s lot.

IFYP (I feel your pain)
MrsVJ is a lovely girl but she is a torture test for anything mechanical or electrical. She has no feeling at all for such things. Then somehow it seems there is always something needs doing. Things that haven't bothered us for years are suddenly "life threatening" and must be fixed by tomorrow.

Welcome to my club.
