If this sounds like a moral catastrophe to you, be happy, for you have married a good officer.
If you are a working mother, or a housewife, in either case you have ample time left for yourself, because both your shift timings don't always match (rather never).
If you are serving the nation as a cop too, may be in a different department, you can understand it perfectly well as a couple.
Marrying a cop is no less than an attempt at suicide if you are emotionally weak, self-centered, or a dependent soul.
However, if both work as police officers, or at least in similar kinds of duties, nothing like it.
Since they have to deal with a lot of tragic situations on a daily basis, it makes them quite cold as human beings.
Family life, taking care of children, other household responsibilities, fixing broken stuff, running errands, scheduling health appointments for everyone, or attending parent-teacher conferences, be it any or all of these, she has to do it all alone.The relationship can suffer a lot, as two people with sometimes completely opposite fields of work try to mend their lives to make it all work.Overtime or changing shifts do not allow a 'normal' routine, or what is called a normal 8-hour day.They get a call and have to go as a back-up to some other team, to clear out some traffic, or because they got a 911 emergency. Even your children learn to adapt to this uncertainty of life.This leaves hardly any time for the two of you to be together.One's profession becoming a deterrent in his/her marriage appears to be a surprising fact, but it is true in case of an LEO (Law Enforcement Officer).
