Love can happen suddenly; you find someone you just click with, and before long, wedding bells ring. Love is also slightly predictable. In fact, what job you have might tell you all you need to know about your eventual husband or wife!

Doctors Love Doctors
Physicians and surgeons are most likely to marry other physicians and surgeons. This is probably because they understand the long hours and demanding work of the medical field. Of course, spending long hours in the ER together might spark a romance, too.
Statistically speaking, firefighters tend to pair up with two other occupations. Nurses and primary school teachers are at the top of the list for them, it seems. At least they don’t put out the flames of love as well.
Nurses and teachers don’t just catch the eye of firefighters. Police officers also find this union the best. One theory is because of the major gender imbalance between the two jobs.
Most Likely to Have a Stay at Home
Stay-at-home spouses are also hard workers who run the house and kids when their partner is at work. If you are in the military, extraction field, or construction industry, then you are most likely to have a stay-at-home spouse.
While not a hard and fast rule, the education of your spouse is most likely the same as yours. Most people marry someone with the same education level as themselves. Maybe they met in school?
Farmers are another group of people that tend to marry each other. Farms involve working long hours, so it’s probably best to have a partner who is just as dedicated to that as you.
Chefs and Servers
While not holding the same job, chefs and servers work in the same industry. These two jobs hook up often. This is another industry where the workers spend a lot of time together, leading to getting together outside the kitchen as well.
We already said that military spouses are most likely to have a stay-at-home spouse, but did you know it also depends on the branch? Marines take the cake, with over 50% of them having a stay-at-home spouse!
Nurses and Truck Drivers
While firefighters and police try to swoop up all the nurses, truck drivers are in there, too. Since both are away from home for long hours, it works out!
Teachers Have the Most Options
Teachers, especially elementary school teachers, have the most options statistically. They are pursued by those in their industry, like school administrators and high school teachers. They are also wanted by others outside the school, like civil engineers, police, and firefighters.
Rise of Remote Work
A recently new job field is various forms of remote work, or working from home. Remote workers are filling the roles of typical stay-at-home spouses, with blue-collar workers and the military most likely being their spouses. This is probably because two incomes are becoming more needed in America.
