Spouse of Surgical Resident Charged with Polygamy

  • 9.5K

YONKERS, NY – 27-year-old Emily Follingsworth was charged with polygamy yesterday in Yonkers, NY, days after her second wedding.  Follingsworth, a spouse of a fifth-year neurosurgical resident, could not believe what she had done.

surgical spose arrested“I had completely forgotten that I was previously married!” said Follingsworth.  At first glance, most thought that she had just divorced Dr. Greg Follingsworth, but after digging deeper, the story became very different.

“Seriously, I had no recollection of having a husband until the cops pulled me over days after our honeymoon,” said Follingsworth.  Things started to click when she was shown a picture of her first husband.  “I can’t believe I forgot about being married to him.  I hadn’t seen him in years.  I just thought we were friends on Facebook that hadn’t seen each other in a while.”

Follingsworth’s second groom, a dermatology resident, was equally as shocked as he also had no idea that Emily was married already.  “Wow, I usually saw Emily everyday after my dermatology clinic ended at 3 PM, well, most of the time at 2 PM, depending on any inpatient consults which were really, really rare.”

Dr. Follingsworth could not be reached for comment as he was scrubbed in on an 18-hour craniotomy, with 13 consults awaiting him, and 53 patients still to round on in the evening.

    And that’s why you have to be AOA, 4.0 GPA and at least 10 published primary authored, peer-reviewed papers to get an interview for a derm residency.

    Nice attempt. Polygyny is when a man has multiple wives. Polygamy is the general term for any marriage involving more than two spouses.

    Polygamy is a man with one too many wives. Monogamy is the same thing

    Nice spoof, but the devil is in the details. A woman with multiple husbands is polyandry.
