Challenges of the Firefighter Marriage

Thursday, April 18
Classroom Session
Health & Safety

Marriage can either be a passionate, intimate love affair that lasts a lifetime or a toxic, contentious experience that ends in utter heartbreak. Add in the unique challenges presented by the rough and tumble world of the fire service, and making it work can be tough. In this class, husband and wife team Anne and Mike Gagliano take an honest, hard-hitting look at what is happening to firefighter marriages and why. They examine what makes this profession different than any other and how those differences impact marriage. With their 30-plus years of experience, they will share what they have learned that has helped their marriage stand the test of time and defy the odds.
