UPDATE: You didn't join the military your husband did! so STFU!
I'm sick of this Military wife syndrome. Sorry ladies your husband joined the military not you!
I've had it with my military wife SIL (My BIL wife) every time we're at a family function she has to go on and on about how hard it is to be a military wife and how we just don't understand the sacrifices she makes.
We had DH's whole family over for Christmas (there's still here until New Years) my little sister just joined the Marines she was chatting with SIL and SIL was acting as if she was the one in the military it was rather insulting to my little sister.
Later last night my other SIL was telling us about the struggle she's been going through now that her husband isn't with us anymore (he died earlier this year from brain cancer) She told us about the struggle watching him decline before her eyes. He was only 25 when he died and they had only been married 3 years, so it was really tragic he was diagnosed in November of 2012 and died in October of this year. We felt so bad for her because they lived in Vermont and we live in California so we couldn't come out to help her but once while he was sick. My husband was able to come go out twice to be with his sister and show her support. The whole family hugged her and prayed with her on Christmas it was such a powerful feeling in the room. But of coarse BIL's wife had to be the center of attention. She ruined it by saying something like about understanding her struggle because she's a military wife. Everyone in the room including BIL wanted to slap her.
I'm so sick of it! SIL is not the only one I see doing this. Just today in another group someone posted something about volunteer work and asked what kind of volunteer work the other ladies in the group are doing and this bitch says "i'm a military wife" Sorry bitch but you ain't changing anything and you're certainly not a "volunteer" your a wife!
Update- We found out yesterday that this poor suffering Military wife has been cheating on my BIL with her bestfriend's husband while he was in Afghanistan! So much for all her sacrifices and struggles!
