It's an era where making a relationship work is a tougher job than to have an amazing career. We get so engrossed with our personal growth that we often end up neglecting other people. As a result, most of us fail to find a partner in the first place, while others face disappointment in their relationships. To avoid any unnecessary future problem, we have come up with a solution of finding partners with the similar profession or in the same industry. But love does not always happen the way we plan it. Sometimes we fall in love with someone whose career commitments are divergent.
If it has happened to you then we are sure that by now, you know how difficult it is to maintain such a relationship. These are a few things that you can keep in mind to make sure that your relationship is a success.

The first and the most important thing to keep in mind before moving ahead in a relationship where your professions are poles apart, is to understand each other's lifestyle. See if your lifestyles match or at least have some common grounds. Adjusting according to each other's lifestyle is imperative for a relationship to work, so, think it thoroughly!
Your partner is who they are because of the choices they made. If you will go about criticising their thinking, their lifestyle, their professional commitments, your relationship will never flourish.
Every profession is different and requires the professionals of certain dedication. If at all they have to choose between their professional commitments and you, give them time. Do not rush that because the possibility of a wrong decision will be very high. Be calm and let the things happen in a mature way.
Yes, putting profession over relationship all the time would be unfair to the partner, but it must be kept in mind that there are a few professions which indeed are more important than anything else. Here, either you have to make peace with the fact that you will always come second, or let go of what you have with your partner, but you cannot be selfish and have everything your way.
Show some interest in your partner's profession. It will make them feel appreciated and will show that you understand their professional commitments. It also shows that you respect their profession as well.
Since you both have very different professional lives, spending some quality time with each other becomes very difficult. Little adjustments from both the partners can make it work. One might have to bend a little than the other, but both will have to make some adjustments to make the relationship stronger.
You both must have realised by now that you get very little time together, which doesn't even happen as often as you would like. So, when you do meet, do not waste those precious minutes fighting.
As the relationship progress, you will understand each other's professional schedule to a great extent. Once you get a hold of that, you can create your own schedule for the romantic rendezvous. Yes, it isn't that spontaneous, but you will get to spend some time with your partner!
Being too demanding is not good for the health of any relationship and when your professions are poles apart, it will be extremely poisonous. This will pressurise your partner and nothing good will come out of it.
Not any single advice fits all relationship, but this one will. Love can make everything work. It is the most wonderful thing in the world. If you and your partner love each other unconditionally, you can make anything in this world work.
Parting ways is easy, but staying together to make it work is totally worth it. If you have found the one, don't let your professional commitments change the course of your relationship. Little efforts and adjustments from both the sides and a lot of love can make anything work. Good Luck!
