Ahh…. valentine’s day. That holiday that couples in love celebrate. I am not part of a couple and haven’t been part of one since… well let’s not talk about that. Earlier today, I was listening to a TWIV podcast episode (#97 California virology), where Vincent Racaniello, the host, was interviewing a couple of virologists, both of them married to virologists as well. This, as well as other valentine-related mumbo-jumbo made me google “scientist couples” and found this interesting article from the scientist.com. Read the comments as well, people have very strong opinions about the featured power couples and even give their insights as to how such relationships can work. Life and love is different when you are a scientist!
