I’m not sure how different it is in the UK, but a psychiatrist is a medical doctor and requires a medical degree, board certification, and further specialization in psychiatry. A psychologist does not require a medical degree, but does need a doctorate to have a clinical practice. It seems to me that if that’s your field and what you want to be in, it’s a given that you’d need a doctorate or medical license.

You need an MD not a PhD to be a psychiatrist – you have to be a qualified doctor. Do you mean psychologist?
I don’t really understand the juggling married life and studying. Or do you mean juggling wedding planning and studying? It certainly can be done as long as you make sure you’re prioritizing your school work. If you want to go into a field that requires further education, you really don’t have much choice on whether you continue or not – if you want the job, you need to have the required level of education.
