I mean, those were just my examples that were top of mind, but male/female fellow poker player or not, don't you guys think that we ask a lot from the people in our lives?
Relationships are hard enough to sustain as it is, but how many, even successful players have been able to keep it together for the long haul. First in my mind would be Hellmuth, but maybe that's a bar too high as ANY psychiatrist would love to get that unique brain sitting on their couch! lol
(Although people who seem to "really know him" say he's actually a really nice guy away from the felt.)
To add to this, I think it can be "an adjustment" for any partner where their partner is working or "working" in an area of uncertain income. This would also apply to anyone working off of commission including Inside Sales Reps, Pharmaceutical Reps and Real Estate Agents, all of which whom can do quite well.
