Best of HR –®

Today's presenter Petra Gerster on her career and her role as sole-earner. Petra Gerster has two children with her husband Christian Nürnberger: daughter Livia and son Moritz.

The husband stays with the children

Nuremberg had stayed at home with the child for one year. The decisive factor for the distribution of roles in her family at the time was that her moderation work with 'Mona Lisa' was just beginning and Gerster could not have simply said that she would now stay at home for half a year or a year. She also wanted to stay on the ball.

On the other hand, he no longer felt like the business and technology newspaper for which he worked as a text editor. He preferred to write books. "So he suggested staying with the child and becoming self-employed," recalls Gerster. And adds: "I was shocked at first because I became the sole earner."

Family more important than career

Gerster's career choice was made at the last minute. Originally, she wanted to go to the diplomatic service, and had even had the exam documents for it. "A foreign correspondent in Russia would also have been a dream," she says.

But at some point she realized that a family was much more important to her than her career. “But I couldn't imagineto find a man who would move with me every three years. ”

You have to get together

Petra Gerster believes that marriage has to be done together. “Then it works much better than at the beginning. A good experience."

In their view, people who don't even argue have "nothing more to say". They would have resigned or would fiddle with each other and would no longer have a proper relationship. “In this respect, ours is extremely lively.”

Healthy dispute culture

When asked if the quarrel ends with the good night kiss, Gerster replies that unfortunately this fails because of her husband, who could fall asleep even in the biggest fight, if it takes him too long.

"It annoys me insanely, because then I'm really awake." But the next morning everything was forgotten with him, always. "That has its good points too!"
