2) Got a fiance' I've been with for five years (almost like a permanent engagement), no kids, though I do have her cat to deal with.
3) I like it, and I've done a lot worse for the money. This isn't a bad deal, and I enjoy it. I'm doing this by choice, not by necessity. Personally, I'm a corporate world drop-out who came to LE from another career because this field always appealed to me and I hated sitting at a desk.
4) Yes. We own a house, we don't have debt beyond our mortgage, and I play in the mountains on the weekend. My fiance is a full-time student without a job, and I don't think we hurt on the finances. Like anything else, you have to live within your means. You won't be rich doing this job, but you might like your life more.
BUT, if you are looking into joining this profession, realize that it isn't for everyone. I like my job, and most of the officers on this site do as well. However, you have to know if it will work for you (some of this you can't figure out until you try it). Personally, I don't mind the weird hours (they actually work better for me), my fiance isn't overly concerned about me working a "dangerous" job, I like the variety, and I don't mind getting down and dirty. If you have a spouse that you value, be sure to discuss this with them to make sure they can handle you doing this job.
