My choice would be to see my spouse on a daily/nightly basis. Generally speaking the more successful one is the more likely they are to have to travel for work or put in long hours where they are away from their spouse a lot.
Too often women in particular will set out to marry a really successful man without considering long-term how much they will be left alone with the children. Lets face it most (presidents, CEOs, VPs, surgeons, lawyers, entertainers, military service people, top politicians, or outside sales people...etc) are not going to be home for dinner at 6PM each evening.
It's not uncommon for some resentment to set in or to hear someone say, "I didn't get married to be alone!". Another issue that often arises concerns (trust), and emotional/physical needs. Cheating is much easier if one is incline to do so when couples don't spend much time together. It's also much harder to "make up" after an argument long distance. Essentially one has to truly know (them self) and what type of marriage they want to have.
On the other hand I've known couples that got very (use) to being apart. In one such instance a guy completed his four years in the navy on a sub and when he was home for good the marriage ended. His wife had gotten use to her routines with the chidren and making all of the decisions while he was away. Although he had been home for vacations it wasn't the same once he was "home for good".
