Im new to this site and have been looking around. I was pretty shocked to read so many nurses saying they would never with a capital N, marry a DR? Are you kidding me? I would love nothing more to fall in love with and marry an... Read More

    In my experience doctors are not interested in nurses. They usually marry other doctors. It is also a fallacy that all doctors are rich. Medical school is not cheap and lasts a very long time.

    Nope, never around, never stop talking medical, never a "different" slant on your life ~ just the disease process and how crappy the help is. I love having some diversion in my life. Good thing about it is that they're probably never around so you can do as you wish ....

    As a Nurse who is a male, I say, Yes, I would marry a Doctor who was female, now only if they were willing to marry a nurse.

    Yep, more nerdy than IT people 24-7. One of them actually told me that art of any form was a waste of time.

    I would marry the person I happen to fall in love with. If she happens to be a doctor, I won't hold it against her. I plan to fall in love with a person, not an occupation. My ex was an engineer, but I won't hold her actions against all engineers.

    My guy is an engineer. Intelligent, educated, successful, and home at night. We talk about everything except work. Marry a doc? No way.

    Ha! Ha! This thread is very interesting and entertaining... I am not married to a doctor, but I know many nurses who are. Male nurses married to female MDs, and female nurses married to male MDs, and of course MDs married to MDs and nurses married to nurses.
    As with most professions, both jobs come with financial and time constraints. MDs and nurses face professional commitments that other professions also encounter. Teachers, lawyers, firemen, EMTs, veterinaries, engineers, business owners, etc. also spend long hours away from home.
    When one falls in love, the profession of the apple of one's eye flies out the window - my husband was unemployed when we met 28 years ago... he's now an engineer. It's not difficult to say that we are still together because our relationship is based on love and mutual respect. If he was an MD when we first met at the age of 18, then yes, I still would have married him.

    If we love each other, then why not? Besides we will always have food on our table, where i don't have to be the breadwinner (in my country medical doctors never go hungry, no matter how poor they practice)

    I am surprised at the number of people here who say that doctors are not rich. The few that I know are very wealthy. Isn't the average salary around 200K? I would never marry solely for money, but 200K/year is a sexy figure.
