I'm really curious if there are any married consultants here. How do you do it? Or is everyone a single, cynical shell of a human being who only has time for alcohol, work and the occasional netflix?

Date another consultant

Why does being single immediately regulate us to being cynical? I happen to love this life... for now.

I sleep with other consultants. There's plenty to talk about.

Dating another consultant really helps, especially when you both pick up a project in the same city. Me and my boyfriend even sometimes take the same flight. I joke about this being my most normal relationship yet. Plus... 2x the points for flights and hotels.... 🙌🏻🙌🏻

Married. 2 years. Yes it's tough, but as trite as it sounds all the time away does make you value time with your partner that much more.

Married going on 3 years.. no kids.. Consulting works - especially when you're an introvert, sometimes M-Th. can work on your side.

Married 5 years. You have to abandon the notion of a traditional marriage and my wife is very capable of making friends independent of me

Married one year and used all my SPG points to honeymoon in Bali...

It takes a lot of work and mostly dedicating uninterrupted time with each other. Don't watch Netflix - talk. When you go out to dinner once a week - turn your phone on airplane mode or leave it at home. Simply - prioritize meaningful communication with each other and the rest will fall into place. The weeks we don't do it - we both notice.

It also really depends on the projects you end up on. I've experienced a HUGE variation in work life balance and how often I'm away during my 2.5 years

Not married myself, but Father has worked in Consulting for 20+ years. If I've learned anything watching my family, it's that my mother says his travel keeps her sane. I guess it keeps things fresh?

Or better yet, date a consultant in ANOTHER city and flex together on the weekend~

Def single and cynical and loving EVERY SECOND

I'm the latter.

Married as an associate. 3 years strong. Use your points for family vacations and weekends away. In lieu of is a beautiful thing.

Single and loving it... "Sorry [girl I don't like anymore]... Next project is in Riyadh"

Am I being unreasonable for being annoyed that I’m not permitted to fly business/first on a cross country flight? I’m going to trial for 2 weeks and I convinced them to let me fly business on the way there so I can work on the flight, but they said no on the way back. I’ll be exhausted from trial and want to be comfortable to sleep. How do other firms handle cross country flights? Like come on, my hourly billing rate is about the same cost as the business class flight.
