 Hi, I know there are couples out there that are both cops but is there anyone where both of you became cops at the same time and had kids? Is it doable? Will it tear apart the family?

I don't fit into that category, but I can tell you this is a very vague, broad question.


How long has the couple been married? What kind of relationship did the couple have prior to being hired? Were there any marital/relationship issues prior to being hired? Is there family support (family members of the couple) that can help with the children when need be? Same department and same shift? How old are the children?


Those are just a few "off the top of my head" questions.


I really do wish this couple the very best of luck!!

 Married for about 7 yrs. Kids ages 3 to 7. No help, and I'm assuming starting as rookies, same shifts which are most likely graveyard. Relationship is great. We do everything together. I'm just concerned cause a cop wife life is hard enough. I was just curious how much harder it is with both of us starting out.

I am curious if you are just thinking or actually in the hiring process. I've know couples who were both cops and seemed to have an excellent relationship and employment history. My advice is don't over think this. I am also curious of your ages and level of education.

Wow, went anonymous already. Hope this is not an indication of how the job vs relationship goes.

 Due to the way their second post was worded, I wonder if their agenda was to have you help them talk the spouse out of a career in LE.
