While some of my friends are in a stable relationship, a fairly large number are single with very few or no prospects in the foreseeable future.
You might be thinking it is easy for medical students to find people to date. Easy because even before they finish their degree course they seems to have a sparkling future.
With that degree of debt, there is little room for flexibility should one’s future plans change. For instance, what if this female student, who now says she intends to continue working full-time while raising a family, changes her mind later?
Or something unforeseen happens, like having twins or triplets?
So the mating pool for a hypergamous female has shrunken significantly.A female doctor cannot offer: When looking from a guy’s point of view, a female doctor is not exactly the best catch.Even if the female doctor was willing to forgo hypergamy and marry down, she may have to try very hard to finding someone.Let me switch gears here for a second and talk about women in STEM. They need to love atoms and quantum entanglement and bridges and nuclear reactors!Despite throwing every incentive their way, the percentage of women in STEM fields hasn’t budged that much over 20 years, with one big exception: medicine, both veterinary and human. Women love science when they can use it to take care of puppies, kittens and babies. All this taking care of living creatures stuff must end!
