To The Police Girlfriend Who Feels Left Out

While my husband didn’t get into law enforcement until after we were married, I can remember very well feeling left out when we were “just” boyfriend and girlfriend.  We’d talked about marriage a lot before getting engaged (after all, we dated for about 3 years before tying the knot.)

I remember how frustrating it was when friends and family would discount our relationship: when family would lay claim on his time, guilting him and reminding him that I wasn’t family, and they were.  That they needed to come first.

And, of course, I wasn’t dealing with the stress of someone who regularly put their life on the line.
