  • All of the above :)

    You'll find tons of support! The men and women in the Military all stick together! We're brothers and sisters you might say, lol

  • Always know where your marriage license, military ID, kid's shot records, powers of attorney, and current LES are. All should be easily accessible and your ID is your life line. It should be with you any time you leave your house. Also, be prepared for plans to change. It always will and at the least convenient time.

  • DON'T GET INVOLVED WITH OTHER COUPLES ARGUMENTS! Worry about your own marriage, don't compare yours to anyone elses. You have to be flexible, because the only constant is change. Not all FRG's are good. But don't let what others tell you deter you from at least trying to be involved. When I took over as co-leader, and the new commanders wife came in, we talked about what we wanted from it. The outgoing leader wasn't good, and said what I wanted wouldn't happen. Well, the commander, his wife and I were on the same page, and the FRG is awesome. So, try to make your own mind up on things. Marriage is hard, being in the military makes it harder. Communicate with your hubby all the time. And get good at it.
