In honor of Valentine’s Day, we’re digging up a Greedy Associates post from July with tips for how to help your romantic relationship survive law school.

“I speak from a place of failure,” blogger William Peacock wrote. “I went into law school thinking I’d spend the rest of my life with the woman I was dating at the time. By the end of 1L year, we were teetering on the edge. Shortly after 2L year began, and long-distance entered the equation, we were finished.”

Among the suggestions? If your significant other isn’t also a student, still be sure to invite him or her when you hang out with your classmates.

This week, we’d like to ask you: Are you still with your law school sweetheart? Or did the stress of your studies kill the relationship? If your relationship started before or during law school and is still going strong, let us know how you made it work!
