My Husband Is A Police Officer
We met about seven years ago. He was already a police officer when we met. We fell in love quickly and got married six years ago. My husband is a corporal for the local police department and works shift work. When he is home, he seems disconnected and grouchy. He says it's because of his job and he just needs time to decompress. The problem is, by the time he starts acting normal, he's leaving for work again. He wants to control my actions and always has to know where I am and who I am talking to. At times, I feel as though he is interrogating me. He has never hit me but can be verbally abusive at times. He always says he is sorry after he blows up and blames it on the stress of his job. We do not have children yet. My concern is the problem will escalate to the point where he would hit me. I am at the point in my life where I feel I need to decide whether to stay and deal with the abuse or cut my losses and hopefully start over.
