How many of you married doctors? - page 5

Hi all! I'm currently a student at Johns Hopkins SON, just starting, and I'm wondering how hard it will be to meet and date some of the male med students here to seek out future husbands. Don't... Read More

    Favorite quotes that say much to the mind and heart if we but take it all in....

    "Don't miss out on a blessing because it isn't packaged the way that you expect."

    "As you grow older, you stand for more and fall for less."

    "He/She is truly wise who gains wisdom from another's mishap."

    "Success in marriage is NOT so much finding the right person as it is in being the right person."

    "I have yet to hear a man ask for advice on how to combine marriage and a career." -- Gloria Steinem :chuckle

    Hey JHUNurse! You started this topic and then bailed out. What's the matter? Don't you like the responses?

    As far as bagging an MD . . . . be careful what you wish for. you might get it.

    powerful, wealthy egomaniacs do NOT make good hubbies.
    Brings to mind an ole doc I once knew long time ago in a hospital far, far away. This doc was in his sixties, had tireless energy, very intelligent, was also the mayor of the small town in which he ran his family practice. ACTUALLY, this doc HAD to run EVERYTHING.. a bona fide megalomaniac. The ole doc liked to chase skirts and was rumored to be having some affairs. Then there was a huge scandal in the town, when he allegedly was abusive to his wife and kids--wife beating, besides the cheating. Wife and he ended up having a very nasty, very public divorce (dirty laundry airing and all). Then a little young something at the hospital "nabbed" him--someone easily half his age. Actually, the ole' doc had actually DELIVERED this girl 30 some years ago They never did get married, but are still living together after all these years. A very strange relationship indeed and a very strange saga fitting for an equally strange town.

    I dated a doctor once and everything was fine until his wife found out....LOL I am not kidding he was new and so was I and he forgot to mention that he was married.....what a jerk.... any way.... I find this thread a hoot, I have never laughed so hard!!!! I really think that perhaps you should consider a a psychiatrist......they are so fun..... you could have a marriage and free psych meds and counseling.... what a bargin.... and your expensive shoes would make nice clickety -click noises as you walk down the hallways arm and arm... healing the insane trapped within themselves......
    ( oh, that was not very nice of me..... bad kitty, bad, bad, kitty!!!)

    I also second this one. LOL My fiance is studying to be an engineer, and a good portion of my friends - male AND female - are going the same route... Maybe we should set up a dating service for nurses and engineers?

    Seriously, though, it's weird. A lot of nurses I know are attached to engineers. Wonder why?

    I think that if you marry for money, you should be aware that your husband will think he bought himself a wife.

    Excellent response! You turned the tables around beautifully.

    you must not have experienced life much to even consider marrying for money. Your thread is an embarrassment to other nurses. Rustyhammer is so correct, - if you can't manage on your salary- never mind, - it's a pathetic search on your part. Keep this thread near you, and twenty years from now you'll see how shallow it is.

    ps/we had a "christian" doctor who worked emerg- a strong member of his congregation etc etc. Starting sleeping with my neighbour (emerg switchboard operator) also a strong member of the congregation. Guess they both wanted to strengthen their own congregation. He is married and has three cute little girls. She is divorced and has two teenagers.(She is known to be on the search for a doctor). Sickening.

    Wow! I come back to find this thread has become 4 pages! I want to explain a few things....first, I may be young (19), but obviously I would never marry someone I didn't love. BUT, if I happened to meet someone who was perfect for me, AND made enough so that we could both move to NYC and start a family, well that would be my dream. Is that wrong? I just wanted some advice as to how I could go about meeting people so I can find *Mr. Right*. My classmates and I always joke about marrying doctors, I never thought this thread would get so serious.

    To all those people who shared their advice, *thank you*. I don't have much experience working yet, so I didn't realize that a lot of doctors might not make ideal husbands.
    To those who discouraged me from entering nursing, well....that really saddens me. I entered the nursing program here because I honestly want to help people, and I have a strong interest in health care. I could have gone on the pre-med track, but I knew about the nursing shortage and decided that this is what I wanted to do. So far I love everything about it, except for any nurses who judge me or discourage me from being a nurse. Maybe in the future if you see a post like mine you can try to offer some constructive criticism and help guide others down the right path.

    As for me, I will be continuing in nursing school, and I think I'll start looking for a nice engineer.......anyone know where I can find some?

    Well, I came to this site to do a bit of research. I didn't know I was in store for a "roflmao" session. I haven't laughed so hard in a loooooonnnngggg time. :chuckle

    Obviously JHUNurse has watched "Jerry McGuire" one too many times. It seems "Show me the MONEY!!!" has become her life's motto.

    I can't believe that in this "day and age" someone would actually think this way but I guess old habits die hard. Since I was a child I have always promised myself that I would be self-supporting not matter what it took. I refuse to have to depend on someone else for my existence. I adopted this line of thinking as I watched a friends mother go through a divorce. She had 5 kids and no education. He left her for the seceratary. She was so totally dependent on him it wasn't funny. After seeing her "scrape the barrel" to get by - I promised myself to never be in her situation.

    Anyhow, thanks for the laugh. I may put up a post or two - questions about nursing in general as I need as much info as possible before I determine "what I want to be when I grow up"!

    Maybe sometime I will tell ya'll of my story with a resident. Kinda funny

    Can't look for a doctor.....already got myself a Minister, a good husband and a good dad to the kids....all rolled into one!
    Besides, the docs I know aren't usually worth spit to know, much less marry!
