If you are a nurse, or a future nurse, is your spouse/significant other in law enforcement?

Just curious to see if this is a legit pattern or if I've just been noticing it more lately.

I am a nurse with a law enforcement spouse.

No, my husband isn't.

However, I do know of 3 nurses in a facility I worked at decades ago..all were married at the time and all 3 became quite 'chummy'(*wink* also known as having an affair with) with 3 police officer from the town the facility was in. All three nurses divorced their spouses and remarried the police officers. Last I heard, all of the 3 couples were still together.

I also have a friend who is a police officer who is engaged to a nurse and a guy friend of mine (RN) whose wife is a corrections officer who works in a woman's correctional facility.

Since being in health care (30 years) I've noticed a lot of nurses who are married to or in relationships with EMS, police and fire fighters.

Nope he isn't but I do have a thing for them.... Don't tell my hubby ;)
