'Questions?' photo (c) 2008, Valerie Everett - license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/Every weekend I like to throw up a question someone sends in and let you readers have a go at it. This week a reader asks about different schedules and trying to get in sync with her spouse.

The primary purpose of my email is to ask you about making and keeping a schedule.  We’ve been married a little over two years (we’re waiting a few more years before we think about kids) and my husband and I have always been on opposite schedules.  Either I was working evenings and he worked days, or I worked days and he worked overnight, or now he works late evenings and I work early mornings (about 6am to around noon or sometimes later).  Right now, I have to go to bed halfway through his dinner break and I go to work and get back, usually, before he’s awake.  This only gives us a few hours a day together.  I’ve suffered from anxiety and depression and am no longer on medication (for which I am VERY thankful), but one of the things I need to stay level is a schedule.  I’m wondering what advice you could give me about have some sort of schedule so my husband and I can feel more in sync.

What advice would you give to help this couple?
