Hello, I have two kids under two, and am married to an RCMP officer. I find that it is a wonderful job, but it definitely has it s frustrations for family life in general. My husband has been in the RCMP since we got married two years ago, and it has had its ups and downs. He was stationed in a small community and has been on call and standby constantly. He is called in on his days off and rarely gets a reprieve from the demands of covering such a large area. He works alone as there are not enough officers to double up, and therefor we both are somewhat concerned over his safety at a number of the calls (especially when backup is over an hour away at times). Needless to say, it is an adventure.
