In deciding what to address this month for her ongoing series about relationships under intense work demands, the author grasped at what was right in front of her: the dynamics of partners who work different shifts. How do partners with these contrasting schedules make it work? At the beginning of the month, my partner worked the second of two holidays at the hospital. Then she started a four-week block of nights. I fear the potential of living parallel lives with my partner, with no intersection or coming together.

I think most of us in healthy relationships strive to avoid this possibility. Whatever your schedule and sleep needs, I hope you find peace after reading that there are others like you who are making their partnerships work in reliably creative ways.

I would struggle because it would be like when you were awake your partner would be asleep and then if they wanted to talk to you then you would be sleeping. That is a relationship that will definitely take some effort. When my husband worked the night shift and I worked days, well needless to say that it sometimes felt like we were just two ships passing in the night.

But one thing that we would try to do a few times a week would be to meet for coffee when he was getting off work and I was getting ready to go in. That way we could still have at least one conversation for the day and catch up and sort of hold it together when it felt like we were drifting apart. It almost seems like it would be easier if both of you just worked the same shift, at least for purposes of connection.

I am not sure that I could ever become accustomed to having to get my good sleep during the daytime hours. Well you certainly have to make a little more of an effort to hold it together but I actually think that this could be good for a lot of relationships. It gives you time apart when you need it and it also makes you appreciate the time that the two of you have together even more than you may if your schedules were always pretty much in sync.

I am not sure that it would work for everyone, but I am sure that for a lot of couples it could actually be ideal. We lost connection and lost each other. It took haha space… Me leaving for home.. For each of us to learn what we let slip away.

Everyday we are rebuilding what we lost. We both have jobs where the hours and shifts are constantly changing, and although this does NOT do the body good… we make it work for us. I guess those are just some of the challenges that you have to be willing to overcome if you love this person enough to stay with them. It becomes even more important that the two of you schedule time to be together, maybe more important than it is for other couples.

Couples who work the same schedule are bound to at least pass one another in the house every day. Couples who work shift work may not have this luxury. And I do say luxury because it is so important to have that other person in your life who will take care of you like you do for them. I know the hazards of this well. I have worked nights for 7 years as a nurse with no end in sight and have a husband, a teen, a tween, and a newborn. My husband went through a period where he was very resentful and selfish about me working nights. We went through some rough times, but have worked it out.

Sex does not have to occur at night. He fields all phone calls for me and only calls me if it is urgent. Ultimately, I decided it was best for me to stay on nights. I love the people, the job, the quietness, the money, and most of all…not having to pay for daycare and being home when the kids get home from school even if I do sacrifice sleep sometimes. My wife has worked nights for 25 years, and I will tell the the resentment does not go away. You can keep it at bay for awhile, but it will return.

Most nurses start on nights, but many make the change. Take it for me, sooner or later he will walk away it. It hurts be married, alone, a single dad, all of that.
