Allow me to introduce a concept that may be unfamiliar to you:
The “work wife.”
Your “work wife” is the person you develop the closest relationship to at work. You complete each other’s sentences. You have each other’s backs. You are committed partners and can’t wait to be around each other – your work day is better because of them. They make you better.
(And work-wives are gender ambivalent. You can have any combination of gender relationships.)
All is well and good until you get home – to your “life-wife.” (Again, gender ambivalent.)
This person is also there for you, and committed to you – and can’t understand why you have given part of yourself away to someone else.
What s/he doesn’t understand is that your work-wife is there for you in only one context, but they are your “life-wife” – they encompass everything.
Make your fiancé understand that work is only a part of the whole, and that they are what makes you whole.
