My husband is active duty Army. While it is very difficult at times with deployments, training, unaccompanied tours, etc, its also a great opportunity for you to grow as a person and a family. You learn so much about yourself during those times and really learn to appreciate the time that you do have together. The benefits are also a great perk. Its a huge change, as the PP said, but you will have help to adjust. Im also in THE BEST military wives group on CM and they have helped me through a lot of rough times. I love knowing that my husband wont be laid off, we have warm beds and a safe roof over our heads. For us it was definitely worth it but its not an easy choice to make. Good luck and if you have any questions, just ask!
