Better Half?

Ok, all a question for you. What does your better half, partner, do?. My other is a potter making mostly functional table wear. She has been doing this for 30 years. Her work is always in demand. About fifteen years ago she went back to school and got her masters and has been teaching ceramics at ASU part time. She also teaches English as a Second language at a community college near our small town as well as week long workshops at John Campbell Folk School. I have found if you want to piss off a potter all you have to do is tell then they make nice stuff out of dirt.

    Supports me in my various addictions and habits. She's also a full time Mom, which is more than I could ever do.

    Full time mom of 3 kids, handles the budget and homeschools as well. If I had to pay her what she is worth, I couldn't afford her.

    Nurse and full time mom. Trying to get her to just be mommy. She also finds time for me, shopping and housework. The better half is amazing. I just work drink and smoke.

    As stated by @patrickbrick I married up. My wife is head of the dance dept, at UNM. She graduated DePauw with a history degree, minor in education, and went on to Tisch at NYU to get a MFA in dance. She is an administrator, teacher, mentor, choreographer, and performer. The link above is a show sponsored by Red Bull and the town of Solden. Roughly a 2 million dollar one night show that she does some acting and all the choreography for.

    The question I get is: Was this an arranged marriage or did she do it on a dare??

    I am a lucky man!

    Friends don't let good friends smoke cheap cigars.

    My wife does software sales, budgets, puts me through college. Never thought that would happen at my age. I take care of cooking, cleaning and outside maintenance of Casa de Loon. I am very much looking forward to working after I graduate in June. When she travels for work I baby Clover dog! She still hates cigars.....

    Get Clover started on cigars; you'll have a smokin' buddy, and the two of you can out-vote the missus.

    My wife raised the kids and ran the house while I finished my education and law enforcement career.  She is now in her last undergrad semester at ECU and will go on to get her Masters Degree in Sociology.  She wants to teach at the same community college where I teach.

    My better half keeps the tiny humans in line, runs an etsy shop, works part time at Starbucks, and kicks a lot of ass
