SOARES, Katarinne; SOUZA, Rosa de  e  MACEDO, Shirley. Experience of being wife of a military cop: a phenomenological study. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2020, vol.26, n.3, pp. 242-252. ISSN 1809-6867.

The work of the Military Cop is permeated by several peculiarities inherent to the profession, which affect his personal life and his family. Given these issues, striking and complex, the present study aimed at understanding the experience of being the wife of a military police officer. Specifically, from the perspective of these women, we aimed to describe these senses, investigating the extent to which the husband's job affects their health and quality of life and/or the family; as well as identifying difficulties faced by them and the impacts of the partner's profession on the marital relationship. This was a phenomenological qualitative study using an open individual interview with a triggering question. Four wives participated and the revealed units of meaning were: vulnerability, constant sense of insecurity and vigilance; concern about risks to the life of the partner; uncertainties about life planning; changes in routine; limitations in the couple's social life; risk of infidelity; attempt to preserve the relationship; changes in her own behavior; and changes in husband behavior. In conclusion, there are repercussions of the work of their husbands on their health, quality of life and marital relationship, which can make invisible their social condition of being a woman.
