I'm here because my husband is dragging me aroung following his dreams of becoming a Police Officer, he currently is working in Corrections, and I'll be the first to admit I am a bit "tense" with the whole transition process. We are happily married and have 4 handsome boys. I just would like some pointers on how to deal, with all the ups and downs.
April.....Is the Cruelest Month
dragging you around.....??? You should back him 100%, he's going after his dreams and succeeding....this goes both ways....

I dont really think she meant draggering her around or making her do anything that she isnt willing to do, I think she was just casually talking, more like a figure of speech.
Welcome to the board..I drag my wife around with me in the military. She loves when I drag her around. :-)

By my hair kicking and screaming.....just the way I like it.
Sorry if I came off sounding like a Biatch. I did mean it in a more humorous light. I give him grief over all the testing and traveling but I am ALWAYS there right with him, and he knows that I will stick with him no matter what. I support him 100% and I'm right there to get him going when he's broke down.
AND I'm STILL "tense" :p
I know what you are going through. If your husband is anything like me (and I,m sure he is :D ) then he is aware of how tense you feel. Im sure he will do everything in his power to make the job change as painless as possible for you and the children. I know that he is greatfull of all the support you have given him thus far.
Good luck to you and your husband in the career search.

I don't doubt him in the least, and I know he is trying to do everything possible to "ease my tension" and if it weren't for the kids then I wouldn't be stressin so much, however the less pain we have to endure, the less pain HE will have to endure :) :)
oooops! sorry for the attack :) my apologies. This is a very good site to be on. The members here are very cool with you and will try and answer what they can....take care and have fun...welcome.

Read " I love a cop" it's the best thing I've read and prepares you for alot.
I am about to marry a an officer who graduates to a P2 in July ( I'm so proud!). We started dating one month after he graduated from the academy, a very tough time but we have always managed, now my work schedule conflicts with his quite a bit until recently . Now we see each other Saturdays and a few evenings a week and if nothing else he has to jog and i take my dog jogging so we hit the evenings, its a three birds, one stone kinda thing but we make due with the odd things we have to go through and I am so incredibly proud and protective of him!
I will always abck him up 100 %. But reading " I love a cop" also has let me know things that I have already faced or will be facing and prepares me for some of it.

In my most humble opinion, yes I can be humble ;) , being on the street vs. in the jail is more safer and less stressful.
