Hopefully that will be my situation next year..if I get an acceptance Anyway, my husband and I are both taking classes righ tnow (his are full time) as well as both of us working full time, and all the other odds and ends that go with life. Sure, some nights seem lonely when one or the other of us has to hit the books, but we know that this is a short term situation. We had a strong relationship before we married ( a year ago), so that helps. There's a phrase, "From each his ability, to each his need." We do what we can for each other and for our household, but when there's just too much on one of our plates, the other takes over.
I've found married life to be pretty good in pharmacy school. I think it's great to have someone there for support (emotionally and financially). She does get kind of frustrated sometimes when I've got a few tests the next week and spend all of my time studying. I've found it's just all about time management though. You have to make time for school, but you also have to make time to be with your spouse. It's also nice to have someone to make dinner or do the wash when you've got a test the next day

That's how we handle it too. When I've got tests coming up my wife does all the cooking, cleaning, etc., but when I don't have any tests I take over those responsibilities. She spends more time at work than I do in lecture anyway. It's working well for us so far.
Married with four kids, here. Only in my prereqs now, but my husband helps as much as possible. It helps to have somebody who wants the best for the family. It helps to have somebody for emotional support also. Plus, I don't have to spend any time dating.
We have an even mix age-wise from 20-???? I don't even know how old some of my classmates are. Not too many people are married; goheel - if you're planning to meet your spouse in pharmacy school, I sure hope you are male - our class is 80% female! Glad I wasn't looking or I would have been sorely disappointed.
I like being married and in school, although my DH and I lead entirely separate lives with him in the working world and me at school. But it's great to have the support of your spouse when things get tough
