Nosocomial Engagements; my view on medical marriage

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.

Derek Shepherd and Meredith Grey’s love affair in the TV series, Grey’s Anatomy, exemplifies the gospel of nosocomial affairs

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.

  1. Nice piece dude. Its nice to know that I’m not the only pro-nosocomial marriage guy out there, I’ve engaged on several arguments over the years & you’ll be surprised the way some people think.

    1. That makes two of us.. 😁.. Recent studies show that female interns suffer from depression way more than their female counterparts due to the overwhelming work-home commitments… This is often made worse when the spouse is not a part of the medical guild..

      Thanks for stopping by, Dr. 😊
