I can see both sides. On one hand I would enjoy it if I didn't have to preface most of my nursing stories with alot of background info when me & my hubby talk about our days. It would be nice to have these things in common. On the other hand, these differences are what make us interesting to each other. If we came home & I knew what he did & vice versa, what would there be to talk about?
Doesn't matter either way, I'm married, and so are all of the male nurses I know. I'll echo the sentiments of another, I bet they are all wonderful husbands.
Now, as for the jealousy issue. I never thought this would be a big deal, but now I'm starting understand. My hubby always talks about "those handsome, rich doctors". (He doesn't know what we know - that most of them are a**holes anyways). I never "got" what his issue was with this. See, he is a painter, does all the new construction in our area. Totally, completely, all men. And I've never had to even think about what it would be like if he worked with women.
His crew got a new painter recently... a woman. What the f**k is that all about?
I think, by nature, all women have a touch of jealous b**ch in them. Can we (I) help it? I don't think so. I just go the extra effort to keep him happy
Is there innocent flirting? Yes, I believe there is. Do we like to think of our partners partaking in a little innocent flirting? Don't ask me, ask the jealous b**ch...
