I’ll be writing about doctors again today. I spend a fair percentage of my time writing about doctors, and I can’t help but notice how many of them are on a second marriage.

Very few are single. In fact, I can’t remember any single doctors. But a lot of them have been married for three years and have teenage children. I assume this means they were divorced and remarried.

I write about all kinds of people, and I haven’t seen this with politicians, academics, musicians — just with doctors. Are they too busy to be good husbands the first time around? Does the first wife support them through medical school and then get tossed away for a new trophy wife when they get successful enough to be written about? I don’t know. It just seems odd.
