The Medical Marriage - how to create and maintain a passionate relationship when you are a practicing physician
This week I lead a workshop for medical couples and a very interesting thing happened.
Two long time couples got into arguments in the training
After some detailed questions it became clear that literally the only thing holding their relationships together now is the money. Each physician spouse was literally begging to be a priority in their doctor's life in front of the whole room.
All they wanted was some of their time and attention. In each case the physician's time, energy and awareness was almost completely occupied by their career - and had been so for decades.
The spouse wasn't even playing second fiddle here ... they were a member of the audience at best. Not good.
