Ok, so I have been with my boyfriend for almost 6 years. 2 years ago he was in the national guard and got medically discharged because of his knee during basic. They told him after 6 months he could re-enlist. We have a georgous 4 month old son, and he has just decided to re-enlist. He is planning to wait until August I think, because that is when our lease is up, so that way he is home when we have to get a new apartment. I am freaking out. We have a lot of bills, we both work fulltime, but our scheduals work out so that we only need a sitter on sundays. Well when he is gone for 4 to 6 months for training, I have very few people to help me out. I can't aford to pay a sitter, nor do I want some one else raising my son and putting him to bed every night. We dont make enough for me to be a SAHM, even though I would love it more than anything. I just dont know if I can handle the stress while hes gone. Please give me advice...Answer Question

You have too many "I don't wants" and you have to consider that maybe this is what he wants for his family. I think his choice is so much more responsible then just getting an everyday job which, these days are dwindling down to nothing. He will contribute to the household just as much if not more by doing this. I envy you girl, many fathers would just opt to be "disabled" or get a menial job.
