I said to one of my husband's fellow residents who is currently in the rotation, "It's as if he feels like this weekend is the end of the world." And he responded, "That's because it is."
My dad told me once that people invest too much in each other to ever get divorced. Some one told me the other day that marriage is not an investment, but an adventure.
I think it is both. But when we are invested in each other, how do we separate ourselves enough to be happy when the other is miserable?
If anything, I think being married to a doctor really makes you appreciate happiness. There is so much opposition, but also so much good.
Life feels like a roller coaster in that there is no status quo. If you ever begin to feel like you have things under control, everything changes: their schedules, their sense of control, their level of happiness, their amount of sleep, their stress levels, etc.
It is a constant adventure, but one that my husband and I would never want to trade for anything.
