There are only so many hours in a day, and so much to do and learn, how can we not be growing together? For some reason, though, a lot of us just stagnate. Get up and go! Devote yourselves to growing together… it is well worth it!
If both of you are first committed to each other first, your relationship will be on solid ground and there will be room for other things. If the husband or wife of a cop is committed to their LEO spouse, they will know that sometimes sacrifice is necessary, even noble. Holidays and functions will sometimes be missed, plans will be changed at the last minute, and energy will need to be directed toward the department in order to get ahead. All fine and to be expected sometimes, but if you are the LEO in the couple always remember to bring the marriage back to the forefront.
