“An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. But if you have married a doctor, you will have to eat the apple with the doctor. One of the most important people in the world, doctors are someone everyone should and must respect, but for the wives of doctors, it’s a slightly different story. Yes, you can love them with your heart and soul and they will love you in the same way. However, there are some common traits among doctors and we know some of them may be of interest to you.

1. Never worry about cleanliness

Your husband is a doctor and he knows more than anyone else how important cleanliness and hygiene is and will probably worry more about it than you. Doctors know the dangers of even the smallest of dirty places and thus, will bug you continuously about proper cleanliness.

2. They tend to be light sleepers

A doctor’s schedule is unpredictable and they can be called to the hospital at any time. Thus, they often tend to be light sleepers and are disturbed by the smallest of noises. Living with them, you could become a light sleeper too.

3. Family responsibilities will often come on you

As your husband’s schedule will often be unpredictable with long hours, it will be on you to take care of your child and other home responsibilities. Doctor fathers tend to be disconnected with their children at times, but they do tend to regret it and love their child as much as you do.

4. Spacing out and complete concentration

Having studied for 16-18 hours a day continuously for days at length in medical school, doctors have great concentration, so if they are doing something, they will concentrate on it so much that they will space out. Don’t worry about it. He will snap out of it and give you the attention you deserve

5. Say bye-bye to street food

Being married to a doctor, you will probably have to say bye-bye to your favorite junk food or even your favorite street food. As doctors are often concerned about hygiene and cleanliness, they will probably keep you away from all such places no matter how good the food there is. But you can always have your favorite pani-puri without telling him.

Doctors are respected and revered and are one of the most important people out there. A doctor as a husband is something to be happy about, no matter their peculiarities, and they will always manage to keep you happy and smiling.
