One thing that we've occasionally discussed amongst our little group is the negative, unsolicited advice and comments that come our way. When people (often complete strangers) find out that you're married to a medical student, they sometimes feel free to let the darts fly. Stories of doctors who cheated on their wives, had affairs with nurses, or ran away with a colleague come about. My thoughts?
#1- You don't know my husband, lady. He fears the Lord and he's got integrity.
#2- Even if my husband was a dirty, rotten scoundrel? We're already married. And what you're telling me is not encouraging or beneficial in any way.
#3- Making me insecure is not going to help my marriage, dude.
So, stand firm spousal friends. You know the fellow/lady that you married. I'm excited that my husband wants to pursue medicine and, you know what? No Negative Nelly's going to take that away.
