I am just curious on how does being a LEO affect family life. I know that each day you all go out and basically face the unknown? How do they deal with that?

I kiss my wife goodbye each day and tell her; see you this evening. You can't control fate.

In my opinion Wolf, the spouse of anyone willing to stand in harm's way must also have a selfless spirit in order to deal with the risk. Also, they must be able to live in today, to cherish the time with their spouse today, and to recognize that ALL lives are in the hands of something greater.

In my area the Border Patrol wives have a sort of social club/gathering where they can gossip and lean on each other to deal with being married to a bunch of knuckle-dragging, ground-beating, flatfooted grunts.

Amen to that. I have been with my LEO for over 9 years now and ove rthe years I have found that I have to be willing to give as much as he does, but in different ways.


I take kids to appts, school functions, church, birthday parties - alone and without complaining. His job doesnt allow us to have a normal 9-5 kind of life.

It sounds a bit like being an army wife.  Support networks may be needed, or lots of Mamosa's and faith.
