Newlyweds Carrie Underwood and hubby Mike Fisher recently celebrated their two-month anniversary.  Perhaps prompted by the occasion, Underwood spoke to People about the way the two celebs handle their fast-paced life, saying it’s “a lot like dating.  Sometimes our schedules will click, sometimes they won’t.  But that’s good because we’re both independent.”  Although busy, one thing Underwood won’t miss, no matter what, are her man’s hockey games.

What are the best ways to keep a two-career relationship intact?

Cupid’s Advice:

Balancing careers and a love life is never an easy feat and is often times a struggle.  Cupid has some advise for how to handle a hectic double-career romance:

1. Take pride in your work: Being sucessful in your chosen career path is something in which to take pride. Likewise, you should be proud of your partner’s accomplishments.  This mutual respect and revere is a sure-fire way to bolster a relationship, even when you’re missing your beau’s embrace.

2. Do everything in moderation: When pulling off life’s balancing acts, the important thing to remember is that moderation is key.  As passionate as you are about your job, at the end of the day it’s important to leave work matters at the office.  Remember that you’re in a relationship with your partner and not your career.  On the other hand, don’t let yourself get swept up in romance that you neglect your career.  It’s important to strike a healthy balance between the two.

3. Come to compromises: Give and take in a relationship is key. No one person in the relationship should feel the need to sacrifice their career more than the other. Remember to discuss things in depth, and be willing to compromise.
