"It was actually a bigger deal to learn that Bob and I were the first married couple to pursue Ph.D.s in physics concurrently. Since we were taking the same classes at the same time, some of our professors later admitted they didn't quite know what to expect. We quickly proved that we were both keenly focused on our educational goals and were usually the top two students in our classes (in deference to my husband, I won't say who ended up No. 1 overall!). Being married meant we had built-in study partners, but we often had quite different methodologies. We thrived on the friendly (for the most part!) competition of who could arrive at the correct answer in the least time or with the most elegant solution."
