I am dating a great guy who happens to be a very brilliant doctor going into residency very soon. I think it was Spencer Kimball who counselled that before marriage you should keep your eyes wide open and then after marriage keep your eyes half shut. Meaning that unless you are willing to become Mormon And your savings account. And that fairly constant theme has some deep implications your girlfriend will have to face.
All these post confirming how doctors cheat all the time on their spouse kills me and my hope in a future with him. Be thankful that you chose a man with passion and drive; realizing that his energies will not always focused on you. This is not to say that I need to be the center of attention all the time, but just that I think all the time spent alone makes it more difficult to connect with each other.
I have way more free time than he does. Toxic is the right word. If we do, I will be back to share my experiences. As for having children, expect to be a single parent. Point is, I can push myself to my extreme physical ends and he has barely broken a sweat. She cried when you proclaimed your love of goodness because, in part, it was a sign that you weren't broken and desperate for Mormonism.
I believe strongly that I was meant to marry my spouse. Ultimately we broke up. I think we need to steer far away from medicine…. So that may be the end of it there. You need to do something interesting and keep her faith up. She is now happy with her uber-Mormon boyfriend and I am happily dating other people as well. If you are a believer and are willing to go, then well and good. Once last piece of advice to you girls who are "dating" or "engaged to" a doc: Don't confuse "dating" and "engaged to" with "married to" - get the ring on your finger and seal the deal. I even had three kids in with me during a impromptu vaginal examination when I was preggo with my fourth. By all means, I encourage you to try having those discussions and to make a mental note of when you would choose to walk away instead.
