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

    I can think of a zillion professions that involve long hours and time away from home, regardless... for both males and females.
    Let's turn this around, if the OP was a male, what would we have to say about him dating/marrying a female MD?

    In this industry, the only turds I have met are females- does it mean that I don't have a high opinion of females?No.

    It simply means,that they outweigh the male species in "turdism". This is not being PC but twist that- truthfulness matters more.

    OP here, I have to say, reading some of these replies has given me a laugh at just how catty and presuming some of you are! Easy killers, #1 Alot of you look like fools presuming that I went to Nursing school specifically to marry a Dr. Um, where in the world do you see that written in my post? I would never put myself through the he** and debt of Nursing school in the sheer hopes that I 'might' marry a Dr! Are you kidding me!? I do happen, however, to be in Nursing school and with some luck and God, am likely to become a Nurse, SO in that case, I will be exposed to lots of Drs. and I would love it if I ended up marrying one! So what!, what is the big deal ladies!? I do fully admit that one of the attributes/requirements of any man I date is that he has the potential to be an excellent provider, however, that doesnt make one a 'gold-digger' at all. Im quite capable of financially supporting myself and I happen to believe that all women should be able to, I just happen to not want to. I much rather focus my time and attention on my children. Thats just me. I have no interest in being a career woman other than financial. To each his own. So to the presumtious posters with the gold-digger, 'she went to school to marry a Dr' comments, youre the ones who sound naive-not everything is so black and white.

    Why on earth would anyone think that a person who stated, "Im quite capable of financially supporting myself and I happen to believe that all women should be able to, I just happen to not want to." would be a gold digger?

    Just because they've flat out stated that their goal is to find someone to support them, because in spite of being able to support themselves....they just don't want to.

    Yeah, nothing there would imply a gold digger.... :smackingf:

    Here's a little reality for all you haters: You are naive as he** if you think that the ONLY reason and thing that is important in choosing a mate is LOVE. Its not the end all be all. People get married for all kinds of reasons and the ones like me who choose based on requirements in addition to love have successful, happy marriages too and I would even go as far as saying, even have BETTER chances of staying married bc I hate to tell you, Love 10 years later, is not the same love as when you first got married. Youre in a dream world if you think it is. So for the ones who found other things in their mate attractive, they stand a better chance of staying together when the 'love' starts to fade. Now Im sure theyll be some poster who says ' i love my husband more or as much today as when we married.etc..-youre the exception, not the norm. There isnt a 60% divorce rate bc youre the norm. In any event, If a woman who prefers her husband take care of the finances so she can focus on the kids and the home is a gold-digger than wow, more than half of American woman are gold-diggers!, seeing as that many are stay at home Moms and the ones who arent are the saints who posted here. LOL

    People wouldn't have to worry about divorce if they only put God first.
    If you put God first in your life, pray, fast and just be obedient to the word of God,
    God will show you your husband. Of course things won't be perfect in the marriage, that's because the devil is always at work.
    For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11) Your marriage will be so much more greater knowing you're with the one God has selected for you.
    The holy spirit told me to give you that scripture and the youtube videos you need to watch.
    Blessings to you!

    OK, this may sound cynical, but I sure would! I love the long hours and time away from home! I am out of a marriage from my first love who managed ot cheat on me during my pregnancy (the one we endured IVF for because he is infertile) and leave me for that woman when i was 6 months post partum! I would love a guy is around, but not all the time. The money doesn't hurt. if they are going to cheat, they are going to cheat. My ex husband is a court officer, and although I worked nights, we spent all of our time togehter. Made no difference. He still managed to cheat when i was on nights.........

    I had a high risk pregnancy. My OB was awesome and said at 28 weeks I had a free pass to go on leave. was suffering from severe backpain, was an ICU nurse, and falling asleep on the way home from work in the AM on my 45 mindrive. EXH said I couldn't stop we needed the full paycheck. Turned out he needed ot live a double life with his girlfriend while I was working!

    i say all of this because it is the person that matters, no the profession. A dr who treat sme with respect would be just fine with me!
