    Legacy: Slain Surgeon Remembered as Fisherman, Guitarist, Loving Father

    “I don’t know where he found the time to do all that,” said Andrew Eisenhauer, the director of interventional cardiovascular medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. “It’s rare that you find somebody who has all that but can still be a human being at the same time,” said Pinak Shah, a fellow cardiologist.

    Most of all, though, Davidson’s colleagues described him as a loving father of his 9- and 7-year-old daughters and a 2-year-old son. His wife, Dr. Terri Halperin, is seven months pregnant. Eisenhauer relayed a story about Davidson buying one of his daughters a drum set. She quickly burnt out on playing, though, and Davidson was left with a drum kit in his home. So, he learned how to play, his bandmates said.

    “He was a softie where his daughter was concerned,” Eisenhauer said. “If you could pick a father, you’d pick Mike.”

    In Relationships, Be Deliberate – For milestones like moving in together, intent (rather than chronology) determines success.

    Found this bit interesting:

    One of the main findings was about how couples handle relationship milestones, like moving in together. Every relationship goes through milestones, or transitions, that mark how serious the relationship is getting. Going on a first date is one; a first kiss is another. Other milestones might include the “define the relationship” talk—the moment a couple says they are actually a couple—sex, engagement, marriage, and children.

    In the past, these milestones tended to follow a straightforward order that began with courtship, passed the milestones of marriage, cohabitation, and sex, and ended with children. The structure and rigidity of courtship meant that couples had less freedom, but also that each milestone was ritualized with most couples following the same script. Men didn’t just propose to women, for instance; they first attained permission from the father of the bride-to-be. Couples moved through these milestones deliberately, in part due to societal expectations and in part because they knew that each step had life-altering consequences.

    Now marriage comes at the end of whatever sequence people want to follow. About nine in 10 couples have sex before marriage, half of all women cohabit before marriage, and four in 10 babies are born to unwed moms.

    The freedom to choose any relationship sequence has benefits, but it may also come at a cost long-term.

    Not just out of sequence, but few milestones at all. A shame. Like any endeavor, greater effort means sweeter victory. I certainly won’t rob my future sons-in-law of the experience.

    Besides, for a real man, it ain’t that tough.
