Being married to a doctor is a difficult thing to balance. Great post and so very true.
After moving in with him it has become painfully obvious I have a lot of personal improvements to make to meet his minimum expectations as a wife and mother. He expects gourmet meals and an immaculate house.
And yet when retirement comes up in the conversation, its a definite "not while I have the skills "- 75 maybe. That's another 15 for me.
Also, I'm not involved with a doctor but I am an RN and spend quite a bit of time with them. It's really somethi g to watch a person who is so self absorbed.
