For me this has been an opportunity to increase my love, tolerance, compassion and acceptance. But, I am a 3rd year medical student and my fiance is a 2nd year medical student. Just talk to her honestly, and if you have to, use the old wonder of logic. It's definitely not an easy life.

We keep getting more and more wedding invitations to our apt and with each one I feel like my dreams float farther and farther away. Everything about the loneliness and bourdon of raising the kids solo resonates.
