Anyone else out there who is married to a cop but not a cop yourself? How do you deal with all the remarks you get from other wives? My favorites:
"Aren't you worried when he goes to work" and "Aren't you scared being all alone at night"
I haven't figured out a good answer to those yet. Of course I worry about him...whenever the phone rings while he's at work my first thought is "how fast can I get to the hospital"...but that doesn't change the fact that he still has to go to work every night. And yes, I would rather he be home with me at night, but again it's a fact of the job and I have no choice but to deal with it.
Anyone else share my frustrations? And anyone have good answers to those questions that will make people quit asking them?
