My boyfriend of almost 14 years! Thank you for being you and sharing — I needed this! Hey Laura, I feel you! Even though my other half is home almost every night, I definitely identify with this struggle of jar opening! Thank you for also sharing the bad, and well done for being such a good band wife this post makes me feel bad for my latest comment…. I feel you, lady!
I really enjoyed reading this. I am not in the same situation, but due to the circumstances I am living alone with furry friends! Actually, your topic is very universal, it is about how to live your live on your own and be in a firm relationship with someone at the same time. I love your blog! I know how hard it is……. My boyfriend travels every other month to China for work and I hate it.
It got old fast and I have those same struggles. I never woke up in a bed full of unidentifiable bugs ah! I can imagine you have these same fears if you want kids that is!
Thanks for those tips! And I think Todd is super lucky to have a lady like you.
Dating a musician: relationship DON'Ts | Bleader
Such a great post Laura. Thanks for being so open and honest too. You rock and are a big inspiration! Thank you for this post. My husband is also a musician and this post really resonates with me. This is what makes his blood flow. I am grateful to have such an amazing partner that inspires me with his passion and creativity. That being said, dealing with bed bugs all by yourself is a kind of hell-on-earth. My thoughts are with you during this particularly difficult time. I love this post! I have been in a very similar situation, though due to different circumstances.
To make a long story short, my husband was transferred overseas a few years ago when we were still just dating; I basically dropped school, my work, social life, etc. I can definitely relate to the huge learning curve that comes with having a traveling spouse.
I especially like that you mentioned about complaing the right amount. I found I had to consciously remind myself that it was a choice we had made together to be in that situation. This was a fantastic post. You are an amazing, strong person. I hope your week gets better! I live in Amsterdam and just saw that Mutemath is coming to town in February!! Will you be coming along for that trip? It would be fun to meet you! Oh man, I wish I could! Hope you get to go! I first met my now-husband almost 7 years ago when his band first officially started to tour.
7 Critical Things You Should Know BEFORE Dating A Musician
I was going through a pretty difficult transition and then having to learn to how deal with him traveling and being gone a lot was definitely a learning experience. I remember during those early days just loving our times together but also fighting a lot. We dated for 2 years before we got engaged and slowly each year, the band would pick up more and more dates.
I love my husband. I love his ministry. I love being a part of it. But boy oh boy is it one of the most selfless things I could do.
Advice From One Band Wife to Another

By Annie Zaleski I have nothing but the utmost respect for any woman brave enough to date a musician. In my past experiences, re-assuring her that not every female artist I work with is trying to sleep with me has only been half the battle won. This all goes back to trust and honesty — but women must know that late nights in the studio are NOT equivalent to cheating. Also vice versa if its the other way around! Alright, this is actually true.
I gotta do better. I will say this though — train delays have screwed me over in most cases where I was actually on time, but ended up being late. Look at all the commonalities. You can be there for each other when things go wrong. So it should be a no-brainer, right?
