Female medical students dating
It's only going to get worse in 3rd year, best to attack it head on now. Personally, I play fantasy football, but I have absolutely sacrificed "friend time" (voluntarily) in order to spend more time with my wife AND maintain responsibilities.
If he isn't listening to your concerns, maybe it's time to get a marriage counselor involved. The reason marriages fail in med school is because people put the relationship on the back burner and expect it to continue to thrive. It needs attention, small gestures, big gestures, quality time, words of affirmation, etc. I don't think med school ending will improve your marriage.
That is very sad, but it is also kind of clarifying.
Arguing over chores is one thing, a relatively petty thing, but he is also not making time for stuff that people who love each other should just to do, naturally, without being asked.
Life is only going to get busier and more stressful for him He sounds like he IS taking advantage of you.
It's not unreasonable to ask for a date night every month. It's a delicate balance but it's possible.
We had something like a 90 percent breakup/divorce rate at our school, the ten percent left over being Mormons or older couples (30s).
There should be mutual respect and understanding for what each of you at doing.
It sounds like he thinks he is doing all the work and you're lucky to be in his life. If he doesn't care or blackmails you by saying he's securing your future or whatever, HE' S NOT GOING TO CHANGE.
He's clearly very stressed and not thinking rationally. He says I'm being selfish and I am going to make him fail medical school.
He is angry for me "wasting his time" by bringing this up. He keeps reminding me about how much time is being "wasted" as we talk. He didn't like the idea and starting making vague suggestions.
I feel like I have no power to ask for change because he'll pull the "do you know how hard I work?? I feel like he's losing perspective, taking me for granted, and getting lost in his med school bubble. Edit: I would like to add that I am a social worker and my job is not a cake walk.
