Ooof…how much time do you have.
6 months into our dating relationship, Darling Husband had a friend murdered on duty during a botched warrent execution (DH is a cop). That was one hell of an introduction into what it truly means to be a cop’s girlfriend/fiancée/wife. Baptism by fire is the only was I can describe it.
my many illness that have prevented me from working
the financial fallout from said not being able to work
DH’s multiple job related accidents that resulted in 3 surgeries in 10 months
finding out he will no longer be able to do his job due to aforementioned injuries
dealing with lawyers and city attornies dragging their feet on the retirement process
having Darling Husband work light duty full time & go to school full time, so he’s putting in 80 hour weeks
initial bumps in the road and learning how to communicate effectivly, going to marriage counseling
deciding to move across the country (I was born and raised where we currently live) so I can be the sole breadwinner while Darling Husband goes to school
finding out that we need to use IVF if we want to have our own biological children
And most recently, the sudden death of my younger brother as a result of a drug overdose.
we’ve married just under 1.5 years and some of this happened before we were married. I figure if we faced down the for worse, for poorer, in sickness part of our vows this early on, we are meant to be together. We’d have been ripped apart long before if we were not so compatible. We keep telling ourselves that since we’ve had such crappy things happen early on, we are due for a good long period of calm, happiness, and prosperity. I can only hope God hears our prayers.
Life goes through ebbs and flows. Perhaps now is just a low point and things will turn around for you..I wish you all the best, OP.
