Miss_Molecular Posted July 16, 2017 Share Posted July 16, 2017 My boyfriend of two years is planning on going to grad school for a chemistry PhD next year. I've heard nothing but horror stories about grad school relationships and I'm wondering if I should just end things now. If we stayed together, he would want me to marry him and come with him which wouldn't be a problem. I know long distance wouldn't work so that's not an option. But once we got there what are the odds of grad school not killing our relationship? I imagine a doctoral in basket weaving is hard enough so his program will be very challenging and time consuming. I'd be working a regular 9 to 5 and possibly finishing up my bachelor's (maybe) so would we even have enough time for each other? I expect him to be gone most of the days Monday through Saturday. It doesn't help that I wouldn't be able to understand his work or help him with it, as I'm not studying or interested in physical chemistry. I'm into molecular biology and biochemistry. Grad school may be in my future but not at the same time as him. Any of you guys made it through with their sanity and their relationships? I'm not looking for an excuse to leave him. I'd really like for things to work and I'm willing to make it work but I also don't want to volunteer for failure. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
