I am a trooper married to a city cop. In my opinion it is easier because my husband understands my job. We work for different departments but things are very similar. It is challenging with children but we make it work. We do our best to spend time with each other but sometimes sleeps wins for activities together. Anyone with similar families?

My husband works at the same prison I work at...he's been there 14 yrs. I've only been there 9. He works days, 8-4. I work eves, 4-12. We have different days off(he has w/e, I have Tues/Wed. We find a way to make it work. It works well because if one of us has a really bad day, the other can understand the mood and not take it personally. If we need to talk, we understand the job and can offer suggestions for solutions. If it's important enough, you find a way to make it work. I can't imagine my life with anyone else.

I'm a deputy sheriff, my better half of 20 years is a sergeant awaiting promotion to lieutenant within the same department. We work different shifts, different facilities, but fortunately have the same days off. We raised my son and daughter and his son as "ours" without ever trying to replace their non-custodial parent. We talk shop about anything and everything except any exceptional danger we have faced during our shift, unless we really need to get something off our chests. While he doesn't (can't, really) attend any line of duty funerals, or the various memorials, he understands my need to be there and supports me. In turn, I support him in his endeavors. It definitely helps that we both have the same career! We love, trust and respect each other, and I guess that says it all!

It is great to hear everyone's stories. My husband has been in LE for a few more years than I have but he has worked for several different departments and has done a lot more than I have. I have learned a lot from him and he really supports me 110%. Even when I was pregnant and still working the road. I got off at the right time at about 14 weeks or so. Besides, he knows it is useless to argue with me. HA HA

Im a city patrolman and my wife is a supervisor at the county sheriffs office we live in. I think it makes everything a lot easier in the coping department. Have any couples had problems with each other when you have had to rotate shifts and one of you is not adjusting to the sleep....going through that right now!

I am a city cop (5 years), my husband is a sheriff's deputy (19 years) for the county where I work. Both of us have been married before to non-leo's and I definitely feel that it works better when you are both in the same line of work.

My husband and I both are LE for bordering cities within the same county. He's patrol and I'm in investigations. I definitely think it's better that we're both LE's so we don't think each other are crazy for driving by a hoopdie and saying "that'd be a nice felony stop."

My Wife and I both work for Immigration. I work for Customs & Border Protection (formerly INS) previously in Detroit for ten years and now in Baltimore for one year now. My Wife Melissa works as a Deportation Officer out of the York, Pa County prison. She has been with the service for five years. We miss Detroit, both born and raised there but we do like living in Pennsylvania now.

I was a Deputy Sheriff and Sergeant for our Sheriff's Office for 15 years. Just before I retired, my wife went to work for the Stae Attorney. I returned as a city cop three years ago and my wife was recently hired as a police officer for the same city. I am a School Resource Officer and she is the community relations officer. This means we both work practically the same shift with weekends and holidays off. Our two daughters have been raised in the law enforcement family all of their lives. I enjoy working at the high school they attend. I help out on their sport teams, with JROTC where my daughter is Commander and with band where my other daughter plays saxophone. I think my daughters especially like it because we both have take home cars so our personal vehicles are at home for them to drive.

PD cop of about 6 years married to PD cop with about 13 years, same department. It works... we understand each other and can vent because we get it... and we can also avoid venting because sometimes the silence is better... we get that too.

My ex husband and I both agreed to never marry police officers again. That was about all we ever agreed on. :)
