I'm currently in a 6 year doctoral program for Clinical Psychology. I am currently entering my fourth year in the program. I met my fiancé when I was two years in, and we are getting married in October. We live together and making sure we spend time together is always a priority, so I understand where you're coming from. He is a firefighter, so our schedules sometimes conflict, and sometimes work out. Most of the time, we are ships passing in the night! I agree with the above comments. We always have a "date meal" and this could even be breakfast at a diner. We also make sure we call it a date so we recognize and appreciate the time together... it can be hard to do when your life gets hectic (work and school). While getting my doctorate, I am also working part-time and completing a practicum for my program. It also took some rearranging on my part and organizing my schedule better so I can enjoy every part of my life and schedule. Hope this helps. Good luck!
