I have been watching Married to Medicine on Amazon Prime for months now, and I am loving the reality show. I stumbled upon this show earlier in the year, and I have been hooked ever since. For those who have never heard or watched the show, Married to Medicine is a reality show showcasing the lives of a group of doctors and their families in Atlanta. Cameras follow these doctors and their spouses, as they try to juggle their careers with family and social lives. I find the series very entertaining and informative. There are currently 6 seasons on Amazon Prime and I am currently watching the last season – Season 6.
Married to Medicine
Married to Medicine is one of the few reality tv shows I can relate to now that I am in my 30s. Back in the day, you would catch me watching Keeping up with the Kardashians, The Only Way is Essex, and many other reality shows like that. But these days, I can’t bring myself to watch most of what I used to work back then. I just don’t have the time or energy to watch crap, so I save my TV time for programmes that make sense to me.
The Married to Medicine crew are fun to watch. I find their lives very interesting. My favourite couple on the show is Toya and Eugene Harris. Toya is a work from home mum (like myself) and Eugene is a doctor. I admire their relationship. They keep it real and you can tell they value one another. My least favourite couple was Quad and Greg Lunceford. I am happy to hear they have started their divorce proceedings. The marriage looked off from day 1, with no chemistry at all. And with all that has happened between them, I am glad they are letting themselves go their separate ways.
What I have learnt from Married to Medicine
I am not married to medicine in any way but I can relate with many of the women on the show in different ways. Marriage is hard work, and juggling a family is a blessing but it does not come easy. Don’t let anyone fool you. So seeing these women struggle with these many hats deeply resonates with me.
Here are 2 things I have learnt from watching the show –
Marriage counselling is not a taboo
Today, we have Many couples all over the world are suffering in silence. They rather keep their issues to themselves than to share it with a qualified therapist. The whole idea of getting marriage counselling is not something that even crosses their minds, and I think that is so sad. Marriage counselling is not a taboo and this is a message that is heavily promoted on the Married to Medicine show.
Most of the couples on the show have had some form of marriage counselling. We have been able to follow them on their journey as they try to save their marriages. All but 1 marriage was saved. That only confirms how amazing marriage counselling can be. It is definitely not a taboo and every couple struggling with marital issues should consider getting some marriage counselling.
No marriage is perfect
No marriage is perfect. If any couple is pretending to have a picture perfect relationship, then they are living a lie. Many couples go about pretending to have the best marriage but the reality is usually a different story. No one really knows what goes on behind closed doors except the parties involved. So it is best to not get carried away with the lives other couples show off but instead focus on our marriages and relationships.
