to his new duty station 2000 miles away.

I'm so heartbroken.

ETA: No, we aren't married. I knew his orders wouldn't allow for a girlfriend and her child to go with him PAID. Common sense. The point of the post was to vent about how sad I was that his orders came in so soon and how he has to move in 2 months. Which isn't a lot of time for us to figure out a plan. We plan on maybe buying a home out there. And I'm sure his orders are the basic orders telling him that he is in fact moving to a new duty station, the date he needs to be there, and where he would be living if he does not specifty otherwise SINCE he is technically a single soldier. Thank you everyone for being blunt and thanks to those who weren't hateful and who were somewhat supportive and helpful.

 Yes. That's what happens when you aren't married.

Because you're not married? Or because of a custody arrangement?

Quoting MrsDavidB25:

I'm assuming he's in the military? If you all pay for it you can go where ever he goes. If you get married then you can go almost everywhere he goes and usually it's paid for. There are very few places that are unaccompanied tours.
