She simply smiled and said, "Let me give you a piece of advice, honey.If you want to get married to a Marine, and stay that way, you've got to realize, you can't make any major life decisions beginning six weeks before he deploys until six weeks after he gets back.
One of the greatest predictors of life satisfaction is a deep relationship with one other person. There are significant social supports for marriage as well as financial benefits that come with marriage. It is fairly common among young military couples that they think they will not deploy very much or very often.If you do, it'll drive you crazy, because both of you are out of your mind right now." That was the best advice I ever received, and truly one of the major reasons why my husband and I are still (happily) together.Which got me thinking about how many other pearls of wisdom are floating out there in our military wife community, waiting to be discovered.We all know the woes of having a boyfriend in the army.You’ll miss him so much you start to hate army as much as how Recruit Ken Chow from ABTM hated the army.
