Way to Mans heart is through his career
Article from The Times, 17th June 2012.
This is definitely true for men (and women) who are very passionate about their careers. In these cases, the career is often the first spouse. After all, in most cases, they were already married to it, before they even met you. As the married spouse if you try fight for attention outside of the career, you are most likely going to lose. Supporting the career and building it together provides a sense of achievement and purpose to marriage as well. For me and my husband, our business(s) is our second child. The love and passion we have for it is now not only his, but ours together.
I once got a very sound advice from my sister – If you cannot defeat the enemy, it makes sense to join the enemy.
