Quoting 3boys1girl32:To each their own.I love the military.
I guess. I was an army wife for 12 whole years. I was upset when my husband got out because I loved being an army wife so much. we never had any problems when he was in. everybody has a different experience tho.
I have moments when I love it, and will miss it. I also have moments where I want to punch someone's face in when things get changed at the last minute or the "hurry up and wait" bullshit starts.
Honestly, as a former military wife I feel that the wives know what they are getting in to. They can hate the moments but to wish your husband would fail something that will benefit his career simply because he will miss the birth of his child is just too much, IMO. I bitched and moaned 20+ years ago but I didn't wish ill on my husband's career.
Everybody gets frustrated at their spouse's employer from time to time. What isn't smart is to put them on blast and wish ill-will on their careers because of the inconvenience.
