How do you handle a spouse who doesn’t understand the stress of being an attorney? I recently switched to a new field of law, still insurance defense, but an entirely different practice. I come home some evenings absolutely drained. Yet my partner expects me to be ready to go for whatever evening activities going on. I’ve tried to explain why I’m drained, but my spouse just doesn’t understand why I’m so mentally exhausted. I don’t know what else to do.
