With that being said, I have long considered myself just a tad outside super TBM since we watched Game of Thrones, drank energy drinks, and occasionally stayed in my running clothes sans garments to do yard work. She went to BYU and did a 2 year mission, but since she was a girl she got to have a car instead of a bicycle. Much more, since I am having a hard time to conceive, all adds up to my frustrations. I wanted very much to make it work with us, and was willing to compromise in areas that I normally wouldn't.
I'm pointing this out because I don't know her and couldn't tell you what to expect. We are trying to conceive now, and I am contemplating if this was the right path for me. At least I know that there are people who truly understand the medical life. No where did I say, nor I think indicate, that I thought this wasn't a complex issue, or that this girl is a caricature.
He might be a doc by day but when he's not at the hospital he's a regular guy just like anyone else. This can be done. And he likes the idea of us raising our daughter with the values the Mormon church instills on their youth. I'm not trying to be mean, just very clear. Not in endless discussions of temple marriage, not ever. Actually, Mormon families are shrinking, just like those outside the Church, but they will always be larger than families outside Mormondom. All people see is the money and that's it.
He often tells me how happy he is to return to a clean home, warm meal, and me in the doorway-and I think that makes residency all the more bearable for him. Make sure the girl you like is already 16 years old. Thank you for this web site blog-I have enjoyed reading these similiar experiences of ladies married to physicians or soon to be physicians.
