first of all it does depend on the rank of your husband. if he happens to b the base commander, or a field grade officer, ie Major or more, u r in a much better position to have an overall better life because u hv access to more and better housing, medical is better, pay and social life is better-- just because your husband is someone important. but if u have a problem with him say he is abusive and u need help u r in a terrible spot because no one wants to get involved with a man who outranks them when they have to say that the guy is not doing what he should, especially in reference to his wife. it can b a good life if the man is suited for it, has a good education and is an outerall good guy. the divorce rate is high and the guys have access to women who fall all over them, especially when in uniform if the man allows it. just as with every other career, there r good and bad points. it can go either way.
