Albert Einstein is arguably one of the most well known male scientists and physicists of all time.
Einstein graduated from the Zürich Polytechnic with a Mathematics and Physics teaching diploma in 1900 (1). Upon graduating, Albert subsequently attempted to find a job teaching. However due to the competitiveness of this field, he was unable to find a job. As he needed to help support his soon-to-be wife Mileva Marić, Albert found work at a Swiss patent office.
Albert had a daughter born in 1902, which was given up for adoption (1). In 1903, Albert and Marić married, and in the years following, the couple gave birth to two sons. However it became evident that his marriage to Marić was not meant to be. They divorced in 1919. Albert then married his cousin Elsa Löwenthal. Albert was a loving and caring husband to until her death due to heart and kidney conditions in 1935 (2).
Even though Albert Einstein was an active father and husband, he was also a physicist who developed a number of revolutionary theories. He is particularly well known for being the first man to propose that the speed of light was a constant, and not infinite as many scientists of the time thought.
It is truly remarkable that despite his devotion to his work Einstein was also able to be a loving husband and father.
