When I first met my husband, he talked a lot about how he wanted to be a police officer someday.
And honestly? It was super exciting.
I felt like I was basically marrying Batman.
I started searching for resources online. There aren’t many and, to be honest… most kind of make the life of being married to a cop sound pretty scary and overwhelming. Of course, there’s good reason for that. It can be really hard, and it can be really scary, and the divorce rate is really high.
I get it. It’s realistic. It’s good preparation. Yadda yadda.
But there’s so much more I wish I’d known.
Even though my husband is no longer in law enforcement, God put this blog on my heart. I struggled so much as a new police wife, but through it, I learned lessons on how to have a happy life and marriage in the midst of struggles. In the midst of fear. When you feel lonely, overwhelmed, unappreciated, and like nobody understands what you’re going through. When life feels unfair.
Frankly, I don’t want anybody else to have to feel alone.
I want you to know that you can be happy, even when your life is chaotic.
I want you to know that even when things seem lousy, there’s a lot of good to be found. Always.
I want you to know that having a happy marriage and being married to a police officer aren’t mutually exclusive. Not at all.
There’s a lot of happiness to be found – and I want to help you find it.
