Not necessarily finance, but I think it’s helpful if they understand the culture. My wife is a lawyer and it has made a big difference that each of us understands that there are times when the other will be slammed with work without being resentful of it.

I agree with A1. My husband is in a different field and it’s most important that he understands the culture of my job/industry and knows what to expect in terms of my hours and lifestyle. He respects my ambition and commitment to my job and supports me in that, although he isn’t as ambitious in his own right. We don’t need to get the details of each other’s jobs or be in the same industry to be compatible as people. Our jobs are what we do but not who we are.

Totally different, that’s my preference. Honestly I don’t give two shits what she does, as long as we’re compatible and can communicate

When it comes to relationships, top priority to me is the kind of person that I am dealing with. The level of interest that they have in meaningful values, integrity, commitment, etc. Finance or any other field are more technical and it’s relatively easy to develop a common ground or level of interest.

No Industry bias, I think it’s best when they can suck a golf ball through a garden hose.

Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.

And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.
