This was sacred time for us together, without distractions, totally focused on each other.
For those who are clueless about medical school, you begin rotations or clerkships in your third year. THE BEST ADVICE The best advice a doctor's wife gave me before we started medical school was: "have NO expectations." This, she told me, would ensure that I would "never be disappointed." At the time it seemed like a dismal attitude to have towards my husband and our relationship, but, honestly, it has probably saved our marriage.More importantly, I think it trained me to consistently assume that my husband is doing his best.This attitude eliminates a lot of issues stemming from unmet expectations and disappointment.DATE NIGHT Time and communication are essential for a strong, medical marriage. Even during our pre-med years, we went out on a date together every single weekend.
