My Life with a Nurse: A Man's Perspective - page 7

I've been married to a nurse for more than a quarter of a century, and let me tell you, nurses are not what you expect (and I don't even care what you expect, because you are wrong)! Let's begin... Read More

    I will add something. First I think this is great! I first read it, as written here, word for word, in original first seen by anyone except the author....12 years ago. I have even slept with the man that wrote it and handed it to me. I'm that lovely wife of 25 years, and the not so sympathetic one when he came home with a wounded finger! That's right, my husband Rick Williams from Newburgh, IN wrote this for a nurse partner for her web page. It was NOT written by this gentleman claiming it as his. He didnt change a single word in it even leaving the statement sbout being married 25 years.After that and over the 12 years, it has been claimed by many to be their original. I have it saved on my computer if you don't believe me. We don't mind that its making the rounds because it is hilariously funny in its honesty, but why do they have to take credit? And yes, all his examples came from 25 years of being married to me...Ann. I feel better that you now know the truth! Enjoy!

    Quote from Nurse fwb
    There is one thing you forgot to write about in your article. If your wife is a nurse then it is guaranteed that at some point in your marriage she will sleep with a doctor or male nurse! So, just prepare yourself for the fact that ALL nurses cheat on their spouses at some point!!! You can take that to the bank!!!!
    Personally, if Brad Pitt, George Clooney, or any other male nurse, doctor, or millionaire dreamboat showed up at my door wanting nothing more than my body, they would get a door slammed in their face. My husband is THE MOST gorgeous, sexy, darling, kind, loving, PERFECT man in the world and I would die before I cheated on him. You are a very nasty person. And I am quite sure you are not ever going to be popular with any group of women.

    Married to an NICU nurse who did that work for over 30 years and the dad of an ICU nurse. Also, I worked as an OR Tech, Emergency Med Tech and Phlebot (that's how I met my wife). At least the gross talk doesn't bother me at all. All the rest is true, though my wife was seldom profane. My daughter, on the other hand . . . Maybe it's adult patients that drive you that direction.
    Sexy shoes: My wife wore midweight hiking boots and started a trend in her unit. It looked like an REI or Cabellas from the ankles down.
    Finally, working in a hospital back then, as a guy, was wonderful. Probably 85% of the employees were women, who had good brains, good jobs, quick wit, and a lot of strength. It was truly a treat.

    That was hilarious. We have eight children. I was an ICU then PACU/scrub/OR nurse. My DH was special operations in the ANG. We took great pride in cutting the food bill down by grossing the kids out with our stories. They would cry and say "WILL YOU TWO STOP!? WE'RE TRYING TO EAT!!" The best one was the patient who's huge abdominal abscess exploded in the OR. It took two days to get the room clean. The kids didn't eat supper that night.

    Sorry, Statblues, you're wrong on all counts. I've been married to a nurse for 50 years, and based on that experience, I've advised all males I've encountered, including my son, my brother, my nephews...everyone...that if you want to be happy, marry a nurse.
    Why? Because they are caring, compassionate, and giving. They'll do anything for you. Forget the scrubs and the clunky shoes. Who cares? Under those scrubs is a naked woman. Whoops! That's not what I meant to say. (Although it's true, and more relevant than what Statblues said.) What I mean is that under those scrubs is someone who will devote her life to keeping you happy and healthy.
    She got into nursing because she wants to help people. That tells you what you need to know.
    And she's smart. Dumb blondes don't make it through nursing school. And believe me, you don't want a dumb blond. You want a smart, caring, compassionate, loving...sometimes naked...nurse.
    Find her, love her, marry her, and love her. That's my advice. You'll never regret it.

    Just in case Nurse fwb was serious about all nurses cheating with doctors or other nurses... not true.

    This makes me feel less guilty for having a naughty nurse costume. Complete with thigh highs, a garter belt, and pasties lol.
