Law School Wife: Sending Him Off

I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a while, since August 17, 2016 to be exact. That was the first day of orientation for 1L students at Brigham Young University.

Once he bounded out the door, full of energy and excitement, the smile on my face faded and I sunk into our used couch that we found on the side of the road.

“How am I going to do this?” I said to myself. I was now the only one with a job, and I was starting grad school in a few days. I felt like I was being thrust into a life of independence without really understanding what that entailed.

We’ve now endured a semester of law school (and a semester of grad school), and I feel more confident writing about our experience. So why am I telling you this? Because being the wife of a law student has significantly impacted my personal development, which is what this blog is about! As I continue this journey as a law school wife, I’ll continue to write about the things I learn and experience.

  1. I hear you! I’m in a similar situation, my husband went back to school for Medical Lab technology for a two and a half year program. He’s starting his practicum now and some days I don’t know how I can keep supporting us on a part time salary. But we’ve made it this far, only 9 more months to go! And when he has a job he loves it will be better for both of us in the long run. Stay strong! ☺

    1. Congrats on making it that far, girl! You’re so close! I think in addition to him having a job he loves, you’ll both know that you can get through hard things. Marriages that get through tough things like that are stronger for it!
