"While itís certainly true that no one is going to do your homework
for you, if you want to keep your marriage and family intact, youíll
need at least their buy-in if not their support during your time in
Why? School is going to take up A LOT of your free time. Thereís no
getting around it! And if your family doesnít approve, itís going to
be very difficult for you to feel comfortable studying in your own home.
Itís also going to be very difficult for them to accept your school
work as a legitimate reason for spending time away from them. Another
reason is because at some point during your degree program youíll feel
like throwing in the towel, and who better than to keep you encouraged
than your spouse!"
