I am new to the boards. I just got married last month to a police officer. I thought maybe it would be a good idea for me to learn a little from some experienced wives of police officers.
Some back ground info about me....... I am a mom of 4 children.... ranges from 16 yrs old to 5. I became a widow 5 yrs ago and struggled with being a single mom all of a sudden. 2 years ago I re met a man I went to high school with and we started seeing eachother. He did not have any children or any experience with children but he went out of his way to try to come up with fun things for all of us to do together and build a relationship with the kids. He is such a good man who lives with integrity. everythig and more than I could ask for.
Ok............... so Thanksgiving is coming up......... and he is working on Thanksgiving so my husband said we will celebrate it on the day after; Friday. Fine by me... but my oldest said WHAT??............. we have to celebrate Thanksgiving ON Thanksgiving!! So I thought ok we'll do both days..... (trying to keep everyone happy) This did not make my husband happy. He said No........... we're not doing 2 Thanksgivings. You need to understand you married into a cop family..... and this is how it is sometimes.
So I guess I have some learning to do. I feel very blessed to be in love with such a good man and to have a man who is such a good husband and father.
So if anyone has any advice to a new cop wife.......... Id love to hear it.
