There are a few reasons why a female surgeon may choose to be married to a male colleague. It may be that the male colleague is more attractive than the female surgeon, or that the male colleague has a more stable job and therefore is more suitable for the long-term commitment. For more on this see “Marriage and the surgeon” below.
For the female surgeon, being married to a male colleague also offers a number of advantages.
As a married surgeon, a female surgeon can be more involved in the running of the department, and may be able to attend conferences.
In addition, married surgeons may have more opportunities to socialise with other married surgeons. However, they must be careful to avoid becoming too close to their colleagues for the sake of friendship.
Married surgeons may feel more secure in terms of their personal lives.
Most married surgeons have a partner and are likely to have children. The children may even have a name. Children are a source of happiness and joy in a marriage, and it’s important to have a good relationship with your partner and your children. There are no rules on how long a marriage can last, so having children is likely to be a happy aspect of any marriage.
It is also important to ensure that you are happy with your current partner and don’t want to change.
If the female surgeon is not happy in their current relationship, it may be a good idea to consider the possibility of getting married. If you are happy with the relationship and the marriage is not going to cause disruption to your career or your family life, then you may not need to think about changing your career.
Marriage and the surgeon
There are many advantages to being married to a male colleague, and no one should be a surgical virgin. However, it is important to remember that there are many factors to take into consideration before embarking on this path.
As with any relationship, there are some things that you and your partner will need to discuss before deciding to get married. For example, it may be a good idea to discuss the fact that your partner may want a divorce.
There is also the fact that any relationship is likely to change when children come along. This is something to consider.
It is important to keep the pressure on during the early years of a marriage to ensure that you are both happy.
As with any relationship, you may be more or less comfortable with the idea of having children. You may be more likely to have children if you have a good relationship with your partner.
Should a female colleague wish to change their gender, it is important to discuss this with their partner. You should discuss this with your employer.
Your employer may be able to support you in making this change.
However, if you feel that your employer is not prepared to support you, or if their attitude is more negative than helpful, you may consider looking for a different employer.
The best way to discuss this with your employer is to get in touch with their human resources department. Alternatively, you should get in touch with your local Employer Support Officer (ESO).
