I am going to be going to school starting this winter to get my bachelor's degree. My goal is to then go on to med school and become a pediatrician. My husand thinks this is a horrible idea and I should "just become a nurse practitioner," instead. He thinks it is faster (Um, last time I checked, it takes 4 years to become a nurse, then you need 1-2 years clinical experience to even consider NP school, then that takes 3 years) and that I can become an MD from there (So, I should make more work for myself?).
I told him that was a horrible idea and that no part of me wants to or has EVER wanted to be a nurse. I want to do something that I will enjoy and I'm not going to go through that amount of schooling to do something I DON'T want to do. Does your husband ever push you to do things differently than how you want?

Sounds like he was trying to stear you to the cheaper wrought. As in school price.
My DH has always told me I could do what I want.
