A career in science seems to dictate continuous displacements, until a steady position is reached. I was looking at the CV of various scientists and I've seen that the common path is: taking the Bachelor somewhere, then PhD somewhere else, and several post-doc somewhere else again, until something magical happens and they become professors. I am about to leave my city/country to continue my studies in Physics and I wonder whether I'll achieve to keep my love relation stable or not. I have been engaging with her for many years and we would like to marry too but the perspective to live apart for long time is none but upsetting. She is a scientist too and we will try to get a job in the same university but this task appears as joyful as impossible. Have you ever faced this problem? Do you think is therefore possible to maintain the love affair while living apart? Ll.
