Ideally, Bailey would be CR and happily married but aparently you can't have it all on this show so I hope Bailey opts for love over profession.
I think it'll take a lot for her to give up the job, too, unless her personal life was really in jeopardy. Plus, I know people think it's ridiculous that no one can have it all on this show, but frankly, I've never seen anyone have it all, at least not all at once anyway. And if someone is really only home from midnight to 6am like Bailey's husband says she was, then I don't see how any marriage with a young child can survive under those conditions. Shonda said that the Chief was being sexist in his old school way of giving the job to Callie instead of Bailey. Maybe his reasons for doing so were, but the Chief did say during the fishing ep. that due to his work hours Adele didn't want raise a child on her own, which kind of seems like what Bailey's husband is doing now. Plus, I'm not saying that people can't have it all, it just depends with "all" is. Perhaps Bailey can be a surgeon and have a great marriage and raise her kid, but it's way more difficult to be a surgeon and chief resident, a successful marriage while raising such a young child. Maybe if her kid was older and needed less supervision, the situation would be different. But then again, even at the end of S3, Bailey's husband called before the mountain climber with the axe in his head showed up, and she told him then that she didn't have time for him, so perhaps this is not just a having it all thing, but a Bailey thing.
