My wife was a medic for ten years. I've been a medic for eleven. She's since become a nurse. It's worked out to our benefit. We've been able to raise our three children with one of us always being home. She worked one shift, I worked another. Our day offs were arranged so she had a day to herself, I had a day to myself, and we had a day together. I don't know about anybody else, but it worked great for our marriage.
