I guess this post is more fit for a marriage counselor, but I’ll ask here anyway. My wife has been getting extremely cold feet ahead of my application to SMPs next year. Primarily about not seeing me and being alone a lot while I’m in training - and I’m not even sure how to dispel her anxieties, since they all seem to be founded in reality. I think her feelings are particularly magnified because I’m non-trad and have come to pre-med from a relatively cushy research gig. Has anyone altered or delayed their career path due to a lack of spousal support? As a note, we’re still in our 20s, so kids are far in the future post-training.
