He also admitted that if his wife did get into medical school, then her tuition alone would wreck all of their finances. On top of that, they would be left scrambling regarding a bunch of other childcare issues.
Anyway, all of this pushed him to have a tough conversation with his wife. He attempted to explain that her dream of being a doctor just was not realistic, and he also suggested that she start by taking a smaller step into the medical field first– for instance, by becoming a CNA or a nurse.
“It’s more realistic for her to get that position and then advance to medical school,” he reasoned.
His wife, though, did not agree with him whatsoever and apparently became really angry. Then, she accused him of trying to steal her career aspirations away.
So now, with his wife really upset, he has been left wondering whether not letting his wife go to medical school is the right decision or not.
Do you believe medical television shows accurately represent what a career in medicine is like? Regardless, do you agree that it is unrealistic for his wife to want to go straight into medical school? Were his suggestions of becoming a nurse or CNA first a good idea to dip her toe into the medical field? If you were in his shoes, how would you try to reason with your wife?
