do a job that potentially put you/ your family at risk
Just something I am pondering today after a conversation with a friend that started on the high court ruling about the soliders being able to pursue damages claims and progressed on to working into research.
So is it an out and out no?
Would it depend on the risk/ the job?
For example not so long a go high profile scientist working in research related to animals would have to check cars etc for car bombs and be aware of risks to thier personal safety.
being in the forces obviously carries a potential risk as does any rescue services.
I am thinking ti is a how long is a piece of string question but interested in others views

It's a hard one because the answer that comes straight into your head is no but I suppose my H's job could potentially put him at risk but I don't think like that (he's a Fireman).

H is in the forces and we live on barracks and just lately, since Woolwich really, I definitely feel a bit like I'm not as safe and sort of at risk because of his job.
So I guess although I'm too wary and scared, H isn't so much.

I asked the MF
'Do I have to be worried about you at work'
He replied , 'you don't HAVE to be no'
So I'm not. Ha!

It's a hard one, not sure. I don't think I'd be happy with H working in a job which would put him at risk. I worried enough when he was working in Scotland Yard, I don't know how the Forces wives do it!

My H has a fairly boring job, but he was quite heavily involved in the aftermath of the woolwich murder and he had to be escorted to and from work for about 2 weeks. Such a slim chance of anything happening to him, but I do worry sometimes

Ex's job did involve being threatened with shotguns and I had some training on what to do if I thought I was being followed because of his job.
