Most Physician Spouses/Partners Are Happy



Despite the portrayals of rocky home lives and marriages on the brink in TV soap operas and primetime dramas, an overwhelming majority of physicians' spouses and partners say they are happy with their relationships, according to new Mayo Clinic research.

I found this article interesting and entirely different from my professional experience. Given that I can name 50+ colleagues divorced one or more times during their medical careers, satisfaction rates of the sort noted in this 'survey' strike me as dubious at best. I wonder if by chance the author correlates his findings with the stage of the physicians' careers and whether the responding spouse is the first, second or fifth for the physician in question. It would also be interesting to correlate 'satisfaction' with specialty and stage of career. I only wish that the majority of the physicians I've had the pleasure of working with over these past years were as satisfied as the comments of these'spouses'might imply.
