I have a professor in my university. He has married his PhD supervisor, and students are now making fun out of it as he didn’t work on his PhD. Instead they were in relationship and this and that.
I was wondering how this decision affects his academic life. Do people doubt his degree as being softly defended or can people trust the expert knowledge of such a person?
Especially if a student wants him as a supervisor and when the student knows about this, what can be the effects of such a relationship on the student’s decision?
