Medicine is not an easy lifestyle for anyone, and sometimes the only thing that gets me through is knowing that at the end of the day or twoI get to come home to my loving husband. That question really put things into perspective for me, so thank you. Though very busy he tries to be available when I need him. And as many posters stated, it is something that needs to be seriously discussed with your potential partner. And you seem like a good person.

I sacrificed my career not in medicine but I have advanced degrees in my profession because I felt so lucky to be able to be at home raising my two wonderful sons. Juggle them with a working wife, a housewife with children and things become difficult. Now I feel sadness for losing out because of fear, and a cult mindset. Ask her on dates.

This man basically tells you in a simple way within 6 minutes. It seems to me like you are walking into a relationship where there is a significant disconnect from the start. I do not threaten lightly. However her husband joined the church a few years after their marriage. He was not a prominent man in the church.
He was funny, family-oriented, obviously very smart, etc. By the end of the first date with my husband I knew I wanted him to be a part of my life. Good communication, love, support and understanding are the things you should consider.
