I'm a student in the day and a line cook at night. My wife works for a growing financial investment company during the day and she's a student at night. When I'm awake, she's asleep. When I'm asleep she's awake. Within our industry if we start off as a line cook we'll do 8 hours and as you progress and make your way up the brigade system, hours don't decrease they increase. My question is there's an alarming rate of divorces and chefs that never get to see their children. My wife and I really would like to have a kid but we barely see each other and adding another person in the mix is going to be hard. My dream is to become a top chef but I don't want to lose relationships along the way in order to reach that dream. I want to get people's opinions as far as how they go about balancing the work in the kitchen and the work needed at home. Thanks in advance.
