My husband went on day shift less than a year ago because we just moved to a new city, and just had a new baby. I needed his support. It was the first time I have ever been away from my family and support network. Well now he wants to work nights..... says the night cops have more prestige and it will be good for his career. I have fears.... that we will begin to enjoy our separate lives and drift apart when he starts nights. I have guilt... we have a 3 yo and an 8 month old.... with me working days, and Daddy working nights.... it's like they don't have either of us as much as they should. I am sad. But I can't hold my husband back. I just feel like this is the beginning of the demise of our marriage. Great outlook, right? I know i need to adjust my frame of mind, just a bit down about it right now.
