Architects Who Work and Sleep Together

For married/dating architects who run firms together, work is tricky. Couples must negotiate designs, deal with sexism (people believe the man really runs the firm), and endure lots of travel, according to the NY Times. Other couples, like architects Pablo Castro and Jennifer Lee, struggle with that shameful, age-old relationship problem: narcolepsy.

"They often discuss design strategy deep into the night 'until one of us passes out in the middle of a sentence,' said Castro. 'The next morning, as soon as she opens an eye, Jennifer can pick up and complete the thought without missing a beat while I struggle trying to remember what it was we were talking about.'"
