DangerousLee.biz recently posted a story listing reasons why marrying a nurse is like winning the jackpot. And not just any jackpot–the lottery, specifically. Sounds pretty sweet! But you already knew that, right?

Read on for author Denise Douglas’s reasoning and tell us if you agree:

Talk about compassion.

A good heart is at the root of nursing. No one goes into the field simply for the money. Long hours, sacrifice, and the pain and suffering of others come with the job. Dedicating one’s life to the care of others means having a level of compassion that goes beyond the norm. Nurses have a strong desire to help people, to comfort, heal the sick, and provide essential aid. Imagine having that in a sidekick.

You will be in good hands.

A nurse has magic in his or her touch. After years of education, what skills a nurse must have at his or her disposal. Nurses have the main goal to join forces with others in the healthcare field with the motto, “Do no harm.” They know how to handle with care. The same could hold true when it comes to hearts.

A nurse knows how to listen well.

It is part of a nurse’s job to be an excellent listener. A nurse needs to hear what a patient says, pay attention to symptoms, and look for any signs of discomfort. These are wonderful skills to cultivate in a relationship. Most people will say that the ability to listen is one of the keys to a successful marriage.

A nurse will be able to handle the rocky road of life.

Everyone knows that life is not a bed of roses. The happy, golden times are wonderful. However, there will be dark times in every life as well. A nurse will have the resources to ride out the storm. It doesn’t hurt that nurses also make a substantial living, have to be hard-working to be successful, and can go anywhere the wind blows to find work. If circumstances in life require a move, a nurse has many options available. When stressful situations arise, nurses are good at carrying on without becoming frazzled. The little troubles in life will not become a big stumbling block in a relationship with a nurse. Nurses deal with life and death. The relatively calm atmosphere at home will be a blessing. Choosing a nurse will mean having a strong, stable foundation for a marriage.

    Yup, I have married a nurse and I can say there is no compassion or TLC left for anyone after her working hours. I always say, if we ever divorce, no matter who or how cute and pretty, NEVER again another nurse; the way they make these nurses work is just inhumane; zero social life because of weird working hours, very heavy emotional and physical workload and of course no recognicion or salary to go with it.

      In reply to Dalvas, you cant always blame the career choice of the person you marry. A lot has to do with the person you are married to. Its a 2 way street. There are 3 sides to every story, your side, my side and somewhere in the middle is the truth.
      Yes, work crazy hours. So do doctors,firefighters, cops, military and the blue collar workers of the world.
      We give our all to our patients, yet we still have enough left to give to our friends, our family and our co workers. A lot of times, married or single, we dont expect to get a lot in return. Take into account we are there for the beginning of life, we are there for the accidents that bring you into our lives, we are there to hold a hand when you reach the end of life. So yes we carry a heavy load of emotional and physical stress but we also need a partner to help ease the load that we carry if you are married. If you are single, then it is the family and friends that help ease the burden of the load we carry. Im not an expert by any means on relationships,but i can see both sides of the story.
