    Do you think that couple from same profession are better?

    At a certain point of life we feel uncomfortable as our partner could not understand the urgency or limitaion of our work. And we think how good it would be to get a partner from the same profession who can not only understand the job better but can give valuable advice as well.

    Relationship specialists have warned about sharing a profession because, believe it or not, lovers can become competitors and harbor professional jealousies.

    When a couple is a (team) sharing the same values and having the same goals for the relationship then their occupations should not matter. Too much thinking along the terms of (You & Me) instead of (Us &We) will cause any couple to drift apart.
    When two people are "in love" they support each other and want each other to be happy. The minute people start saying to themselves: "I don't care what he or she wants I'm going to ....etc" it's just a matter of time before the relationship ends.
    When you stop "caring" being together is a waste of time.

      What you say makes sense, Dashing, but unless couples place the marriage and each other above all else...things go wrong and often do. Fact is, professional jealousies and competition are just one of many things that go wrong in modern relationships.

    I do not think that there is a right or wrong answer to this question. It all depends on the two people. You can fall in love with a person no matter what their profession is. It could be that you meet a person by working in the same profession example: at work, at a function, and find you have things in common, but I do not think that it makes a relationship any better.

      Falling in love is easy...staying in love is the hard part. What may have brought two people together in the beginning, could be the very thing that blows them apart in the end. It's so easy in our competitive society for even lovers to feel envious.

    You can get advice from anyone. You don't need to bother your partner with work talk all of the time. It's sometimes best if partners are from different job catagories because you'll have more to talk about when you do talk about work. You just need to have an understanding partner in general and things will be fine.

      Part of the problem with many of these relationships is that one partner begins to feel superior to the other or the other partner begins to feel inferior. When this happens...a rift often occurs in the relationship and the two slowly drift apart.
