In adding to your comments about what people have told you about marrying a doctor, I would like to add that I am a new attorney so you can imagine the comments I get. We are going into the two professions that are infamous for divorce. Most of the lawyers that I am around tell me to make sure that I get something in writing since I am "putting my husband through med school" (although my wages aren't even enough to help pay for tuition), and since my firm does quite a bit of family law they will always tell me about all the doctor's divorces they are working on -and my thoughts are "you don't know my drew." And although others probably view us as ignorant - it is calming to know that there are others who feel the same way. I'm sorry but your career doesn't cause your marriage to fail; people cause a marriage to fail. I'd like to think that all that we are going through now is strengthening our marriage, and personally I think it gives our marriages an advantage. Spouses who enter the picture after medical school won't have the same bonds as we have gotten.For wives in their first and second years I'd like to post in the future about why I love third year. And since we're gearing up to apply for residencies (yay!) I'd love to hear from some fourth year and resident's wives!
