What it’s like?
Being the soon-to-be wife of a basketball coach has been interesting, to say the least. I never thought it would be as hard as it has been. When Rob & I first started dating, we were in a long distance relationship. With us being in a long distance relationship, I didn’t realize just how hard things were going to be. I didn’t think that there would be countless days I would eat dinner alone, wake up to an empty apartment or run errands by myself. I definitely didn’t think I would dread being asked: “what are you and your fiancé doing this weekend?” so much. Some days I’m angry, some days I’m sad but every day I know that I love Rob and would go to the end of the world to make us work. So if you want to know what it’s like being the wife (or soon-to-be wife) of a coach, it’s exhausting!
The Every Woman
To stay happy & supportive, I plan date nights once a week no matter how large or small (even it’s a movie night at the house), I make sure we communicate at least once throughout the day and that we’re clear on when it’s time for work and when it’s time for family. I love this blog!
thank you for the advice! Date nights are so important ♥️
I can’t image how challenging it can be. My husband is not a coach but he travels a lot for business. I have to kiddos which can make things difficult at time. But I know we were made for this!
Yes, I know once we have kids it will be harder but worth it!
We have 4 kids and all 4 are in sports now! My husband coaches 2 of their teams and it gets chaotic!!
I can imagine!!
I love sports so I’d be trying to go to all the games. Ha! Can you do that????
Lol! Yes & my fiancé would love it if I did.
Thanks for sharing this with us! I’m sure it’s hard especially for away games!
Yes, I am not looking forward to those.
I think that its good you are thinking about the many aspects of it and finding ways to plan your life before kids, it will make it easier for after you guys have them. Also take advantage of your time together!! – Nikki
Thank you!! Yes we are trying to enjoy everything before kiddos!
