A good doctor must be willing to sacrifice his own needs for the good of his patient and as his wife, you sacrifice as well. We are still struggling to put our life back together for the sake of our marriage and our 3 boys, but it is a difficult path. Thank you for pointing this out. I'm a doctors wife, my husband is a speciality physician. She wants the captain of a ship who can direct all aspects of a relationship, including spiritual direction.

It requires a special kind of patience, and I think that the phrase "absence makes the heart grow fonder" has to be something you can relate to.
