Would you marry a Doctor?

  1. 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 intelligent, powerful, rich man who I have something in common with (healthcare). In fact, that would be like a dream come true for me. I dont get it???

    If it's genuine love, that's one thing.

    The people on this site are referring to flaky girls who go to nursing schools *solely* to find a "rich doctor" to marry. It's sickening and a humiliation to intelligent women everywhere.

    I agree, I would love to be able to share my day with someone who understands what really goes on. I don't discriminate just bc he's a dr. In fact I'd be happy with anyone who had some medical knowledge.:redpinkhe

    There's also the family life aspect...when nurses are done with work and go home...they're done with work. This isn't true for Docs.

    Well, of course I would. That's the only reason I went to nursing school.

    Of course I would, if he was the right person. I've met some wonderful doctors in my years in healthcare and some real turds. The long hours, the on-call etc can be worked out. Just don't start out as a young nurse appearing to be on the hunt. It's obvious to everyone and people will talk about you behind your back.

    i'm very happy with my hubby. he's very smart and good at what he does. he's in the business world and he just makes things happen, he's very smart.

    as long as he's smart-doesn't matter the initials after the name, lol

    Not all doctors are rich. Would he still be appealing to you if he wasn't? There are plenty of doctors who actually treat patients for free. And of course there are those doctors who are married to their work.

    Powerful and rich are not the qualities I dream about in a potential mate.
