Relationships are difficult to maintain at the best of times. Add the stresses of current times, including the economy and the pandemic, and you have a recipe for stressed relationships. And if one or both partners are in law enforcement, that presents a whole host of additional problems.

Do law enforcement couples have a higher divorce rate than the general public? Are there proven ways to make relationships work even in these high-stress times? Today’s guest on Policing Matters may have some answers. Cyndi Doyle is the wife of a law enforcement officer and a licensed therapist who focuses on marriage and relationships. She is also the author of Hold the Line: The Essential Guide to Protecting Your Law Enforcement Relationship and hosts the Code4couples podcast.
