Answer ( 1 )

  1. My husband is a registered nurse. He always wanted to be a doctor; he loves taking care of patients and helping them heal. We met at college and fell madly in love. After graduation, we moved back home to his hometown and started planning our wedding.

    We were both working full time jobs, so we decided to save money and elope instead of getting hitched in a big church ceremony. Our wedding day was beautiful and romantic, just us and our best friends.

    Our honeymoon was amazing — we went to Jamaica and stayed at a resort right next to the beach. We spent every single minute together, relaxing and enjoying ourselves.

    After returning home, my husband took a few weeks off work to recover from jet lag. When he returned to work, he had a lot of free time because he wasn’t scheduled to work overtime. That meant we could spend quality time together without being interrupted by work.

    It was during one of our dates that my husband told me about the nurse he saw while visiting his family in the hospital. They didn’t really talk much, but she seemed nice enough. My husband thought maybe he should give her a call.

    He sent her a text asking if she wanted to grab coffee sometime. She said yes and asked him to come pick her up from her apartment. He agreed and drove to her place.

    When he arrived, he knocked on her door and waited for her to answer. She opened the door looking surprised. “Hey,” she said.

    “Hi,” he replied. “You look great.”

    She smiled shyly and invited him inside. As soon as he walked in, he noticed her outfit. It was a white uniform with a blue top and matching pants. Her hair was pulled back in a ponytail.

    “So, you want to take a shower?” she asked.

    “Sure, why not?” he responded.

    Why did I marry a nurse?

    When I was young, I thought nurses were just plain sexy. They had long hair, wore scrubs, and looked great in white coats. So when I met my wife, she was a registered nurse. She didn’t wear scrubs, but she still looked great.

    She was smart, funny, and very attractive. And she loved me.

    But after we got married, I realized there was another reason I fell head over heels for her. Nurses are trained to care for others. They’re compassionate and understanding. They’re patient and caring. They’re empathetic and sensitive.

    They’re everything I’m not.

    And yet, despite being different than most men, I found myself falling in love with her all over again.

    Now, my wife is a nurse at a local hospital. But I’ve learned some things since our wedding day. Here are three lessons I’ve learned about marriage and nursing:

    The benefits of being married to a nurse

    Being married to a nurse is awesome! There are many reasons why nurses are great spouses. Here are just a few:

    1) Nurses are smart. They’re trained to help others, and they’re usually very patient. So when you need them, they’re there.

    2) Nurses are organized. They keep everything neat and tidy, so you won’t have to worry about clutter.

    3) Nurses are reliable. They’re always available when you need them. And since they work long hours, they rarely disappear unexpectedly.

    4) Nurses are trustworthy. They care about you and your family, and they’d never intentionally hurt you or let you down.

    5) Nurses are supportive. They understand that life isn’t perfect, and they’re willing to listen to your problems.

    6) Nurses are dependable. They’re always ready to lend a helping hand whenever you need it.

    7) Nurses are honest. They tell you the truth, no matter what.

    8) Nurses are loving. They show affection through words and actions.

    9) Nurses are caring. They take care of you emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

    10) Nurses are thoughtful. They appreciate small things, like flowers or chocolate.

    11) Nurses are creative. They’re able to find solutions to problems, whether those problems involve art projects, home repairs, or household chores.

    My husband’s job requirements

    When I was growing up, my parents told me that marriage would change everything. They said that when I got married, I’d need to give up some things and take on others. And they were right.

    Marriage changed everything for me. My life became very different. I had to learn to cook, clean, budget, plan ahead, organize, and many other skills.

    But there’s another side to this story. Marriage also gave me a lot of freedom. I’m able to work whenever I want, go where I want, and spend time with whomever I want.

    And now, I’ve found out that being married to a nurse is just as challenging as being married to a doctor.
