Hey ladies with S/O's in the National Guard who are deployed

First let me explain that my cousin has it in her head that she's going to marry her boyfriend of 4 weeks(sigh) and he'll be deployed and send home his pay and she won't have to work,she'll just live off his earnings.
How much do they get for pay,roughly? My guess was not enough for an adult and baby to live off of and have mom not work at all.
Living here you'd need a bare minimum of $1000 a month just to scrape by
By the way,he's JUST going into the Reserves. he's a newbie

  • He might make a little over 1500/month but, he will have things over there that he needs so, sending 1K to your cousin is unrealistic.
