you are correct... she is about to finish her second year. Base salary is in the $450k range and she gets a bonus 2 times a year based off of the billing in her clinic and her clinic group. she has gotten 4 bonuses the past 2 years and each one has gone up due to her clinic growing from about 5-6 patients per day to roughly 25-30 patients and 10-15 new consults. Luckily her group has cardio, gastro Pulmonary, Sleep etc... The Gastro guys are pulling in well over a million. their bonuses are in the $400k range 2 times a year plus their base. Who knew sticking a tube in a bunch of guys asses paid so well? You should look at coming to Charlotte. the anesthesiologist refuse to intabate patients at night in the ICU when she is on call and she has to go in for that. They are right there in the on-call room and wont do it...

As far as I am concerned, none of them get paid enough for what they endure. soon as they get a few more mid-levels on board things will be better.

Firstly, at 34 years of age and having done pulmonary/critical care, you are likely just a year or two out of training. The national average salary for a critical care doc is around $260k. The high end salaries are up around $500k or more, however, I suspect that comes with experience and a higher position.

I would love to know who is paying that much for a relatively newly trained critical care doc. It is over double the national average. Maybe I can go there and double my income as an anesthesiologist also!!!

And, BTW, "double boarded in Pulmonary & Critical Care" may sound impressive to the uninformed, but in order to practice Critical Care via the Internal Medicine route, this is basically the standard pathway.

Finally, a buddy of mine is worth well into 8 figures. They have two cars: A Honda Odessey and a 135i convertible. While I don't have anywhere close to that kind of money, there is a point at which you sometimes wish to be inconspicuous.

I hope you went the extra mile and spent $10k on bow thrusters. I had a hard time maneuvering mine off the coast of Costa Rica. It could have just been the extra weight from my 3 Rolex's on my steering hand.

Wow, you two are a match made in heaven. I'm sure you get this all the time, but she looks like a movie star! You are one lucky SOB!

I don't want to brag, but here we are two years ago when I proposed to her in front of 5 lesbians.

I would also like to get a ride if it's not too big of a deal. My shitty little private jet is only for domestic flights and I cant swing that extra cash for something bigger right now.

She is definitely a lady in the streets, and a freak in the sheets, if you catch my drift.


Bwah. You had to one up me. AF1 > 747 any day. What kind of MPG's that baby get? I'm also curious if you are running E85, I've been encountering a lot of issues with the turbine cycle heat rate being too high.

My jet is similar, except for the paint job.

Man, i have to say i've been having the ideas of divorce after 2 1/2 years of marriage. It just seems like we are not going in a good direction or have the same goals in life. My wife has gone through 3 jobs so far, quitting 2 and getting fired from one. She does not contribute whatsover to the home chores. No cooking or cleaning. When she stays at home, she just sits on the couch watching tv. I work my job, come home and cook dinner and clean up every day.
I've even just gave up at point and didn't do anything, I held out a month, but once the bathroom starts molding and crap, i mean come on. I feel I married a loser. She doesn't even want children, which i think would be her savior to hide behind.
I'm scard of divorce like people have talked about here though, because of how bad it can be financially and with her not having a stable job, I feel like I'd just have to pay for her. It's like I'm at the point I could care less being with women anymore (not turning gay), just living alone. I did it a couple years before her and was pretty happy.

If you are having thoughts now... may as well go ahead and do it. The sooner the better for you. The less time you are married the less $$$ you are on the hook for. It is a difficult decision but one that a lot of people ahve made and are better off for. You won't be able to change her or her attitude. I wish you luck. I went through a divorce after 2.5 years of marriage. I got married at 22 and officially divorced at 26... it isn't fun but I am way better off after her and I really did find someoe I can really relate to and look forward to seeing every day.

Garage List
2.5 year marriage with no kids and the wife has worked most of the time, it's not bad at all.

In Florida you won't pay any alimony for such a short marriage where the wife has worked the whole time. Even if your wife hires a really good attorney and asks for temporary (in FL it's called "Bridge the gap" and also "rehabilitative") alimony, the most will be half the length of the marriage, used to help her get on her feet. They will take into account both incomes and a need and ability to pay alimony.

No children means the biggest issue is not an issue, I.e. time sharing and parenting plan, exchanges, and child support.

It will cost much more if you have kids and are fighting a stay at home mom. All you need to do is asset/debt division and be done. If you're thinking divorce now, definitely do not have kids with this woman. It will make everything harder and will not make a bad marriage better. Just my opinion.

You can consult with a couple of attorneys for free (most do a free consult) and learn your options. Do it on the down low, of course. Do the research, read Florida state statutes chapter 61, and when you have the knowledge it's not something to be scared of. Much more scary to live in misery for a long time, I think.

[quote=fireline43;14541866]how much did you end up losing from the divorce?[/QUOTE

I was in Pennsylvania at the time. I had the choice to pay $1000 a month in alimony or assume her credit card debt. I chose the credit card debt as there was a light at the end of that tunnel. However I should of paid the alimony as it was only going to be till she married again and that was only about a year after her and I got divorced. I assumed $42,000 in her credit card debt when I could of gotten out with only paying around $12,000... roll of the dice I guess.

You are in a better position unless she has massive amounts of credit debt. Start putting money into an account you have someone elses name on as well. Of course someone you can trust with your money. and Cancel any and all credit cards she has access to. I didn't think my ex was capable of what she did, but she was and I didn't take the necessary precautions. She just became an all day shopper.

But in all seriousness... get out now! if there are no kids just get out. Put the house up for sale today or tell her to get out. it is better than humming and hawing about it and then deciding to do it later on down the road. the longer you stay there supporting her, the better argument she has for you to keep supporting her.

Thanks the the advice man. I would imagine if your paying alimony though all of a sudden she wouldnt want to get married to fast, either would the other guy. Banking 1k a month for no reason.
