Well, I have been a full time working pilot for 45 years. I have been married to the same understanding and loyal wife for nearly 44 of them. However, I passed up any flying that would take me away from home for longer terms and some years in the 70's and 80's I was away for a maximum of two or three days at a time in a logging camp. We are still happily married and I am still, at 66, flying full time. So yes, it can be done.

You're so lucky your partner wants to work on it and commit to it as much as you want.

Could be reasonable in terms of a relationship but it is inevitable that a certain percentage of marriages will be unsuccessful. Whe laws are blatantly made that give a certain gender a massive financial unfair benefit, people get upset. And many take preventative action to secure and enjoy their OWN money. As a general statement. It can't be an enjoyable feeling cutting that large monthly cheque to someone you particularly don't like and who made wild, false allegations and tried to do everything to prevent you from seeing the kids.

I remember and old guy married 50 or 60 years asked if he and his wife had ever thought about divorce. His reply was "Divorce? Never! Murder yes but divorce never".

Excellent post by 5x5 and that is really the crux of the matter. There are no easy routes.
