I enjoyed being an Air Force wife. My husband was in for 14 years. It is what you make of it. I do not mind being alone, I can handle daily things by myself and I take care of most of the household stuff. Life can be challenging. You need to accept that his job will always come first and it does not matter if it is your anniversary, birthday, Christmas or you are in labor. The benefits are good, the pay is decent once the military member gets higher in rank. Moving is an adventure and if you hate where you end up you know you will not be stuck there forever. It also takes a lot of trust on both of your parts.
