Marriage is a state of being united to a person of the ‘opposite sex’ as husband and wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law.
This connubiality is a natural phenomenom with which nature herself did not instruct beyond choice of sex, and possibly, a check of compatibility.
The notion that two professionals in the medical guild can not raise a family successfuly is a little blown out of proportion. The field is indeed energy sapping and a glutton for time, but we learn in the course of the hectic training that apart from the emphasized character and learning, the command of time & meticulousness is an essential tool for any undertaking.
This, when coupled with the inherent parental attributes, compassion and managerial skills, can mould the love and affection needed to fuel the assignment of running a family divinely designated.
This, of course, does not mean that other forms of symbiosis other than nosocomial symbiosis is not advisable. I’m merely remarking on the misconception that’s consuming the thought of many within and without the guild.
