    It's unlikely that I'll find anyone of the opposing sex in the same job field as me, so it doesn't really matter, but with that being said, I wouldn't mind it.
    Purty much this. Not that many female software engineers, that's for sure.

    That's true, though my field is going to be Penetration Testing/Security Engineer.. Probably won't find any there.. But if I do :sexface:

    Both my parents are doctors and work in the same hospital, haha. So, they see each other pretty often and it doesn't seem to bother them at all... They've got loads of fun stories to say to each other when they get back home. I suppose they are good examples that it can work. I haven't got to experience what it was like having parents in two different career fields, so I can't really tell... It definitely might be more interesting!

    I wouldn't mind being married to someone in the same career field than me (maybe not necessarily the same workplace), although I would also prefer him doing something else.

    I prefer a Doctor/Dentist as a wife.
    (I'm related to the Finance side btw)
    You're being picky. Would you not marry her if she was, let's say, a very successful lawyer?

    I would like it if she did something totally different to me. I've got a degree in the sciences, so it would be really cool to have a partner who was from the arts side and she did something like law or finance. That way, we can have interesting conversations, and we would both have something unique in what we did for a living. I like learning about new things and I was never good at the arts, so it would be pretty cool to share conversations with a a professional in the field. Equally, I could also share my side of the story

    I have a perception that Doctors would make excellent wives plus the chats will be interesting.
    Lawyer.... Why not?

    I don't care at all tbh, except not in the same exact field e.g. if I do tax law then he should do corporate law or if I was doing forensics then he would do genetics,
    So same areaish but not the same job

    Don't many firms have the same dept for Tax and Corporate Law?

    Become a prop trader at a hedge fund (my primary goal). Have a family someday and maybe experience love of some sort?
    Lets be honest the likelihood of that is virtually nil.

    A very few girls are like that. This chick told me her husband SHOULD hit her if she were to do anything wrong. Uhm, nah love. That's not right. It was quite heartbreaking to be honest.

    Cheating is not a problem. Divorce is always an option. Their boredom is not of my concern.
    Phahaha unless you change your attitude there is no way you're going to get a wife hahahaha- 'their boredom is not of my concern' - gee, ya know, there's this thing called CARING about your partner. Clearly an alien concept to you

    No. I went out with someone who also studied Law once. It was awful, he was v left wing and I'm very Tory so we kept arguing about law and politics. The worst time was when we were disagreeing about a point in my dissertation while in bed. Never again.

    Islam is a violent religion, is some respects evil:

    “Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them.” Quran 4:34

    That being said I believe that a lot of people who say that they are Muslim do not understand the gravity of what they are saying or simply disagree with some aspects of it. I know many people who say they are muslim but don't actually believe in god... silly I know but that is what they say.
