Just want opinions here.... My husband and I have a yours, mine and ours. Married 3+ years, been together for almost 10. I am a designer and have finally been able to start my career at a really great office, getting pretty good pay. Been there for a year and a half.
He's been the sole provider running a chain restaurant for over 6 years. He hates it and it's finally catching up with him. He's always put his family first (there has been ups and downs but we are solid). He's thinking about joining the army.... He just turned 30, the age really isn't the matter here. It's uprooting everything we know. Yes, it would be fun to move around but, I don't know... I like my job, my hand full of friends, all our family is here..My son loves this town/school/friends...... but my husband deserves to finally do something for himself too....
what would you do?

My husband was in the army for 8 years. Some things for him to consider would be- Would he mind a 22 year old Sgt. telling him what to do? That is one of the biggest issues with an older man joining the military. There are a lot of men who join right out of high school or soon after and work there way up. He will be starting out as a private. Also, how many kids do you have? Sometimes, there are restrictions on how many children you have as to if the army will take you. He can possible get a waiver but it would depend on the needs of the army. Anyways, I would have him talk with a recruiter and get more info and then the both of you sit down and discuss it together.
