My boyfriend was in the Navy for 3 years. He went straight out of high school. He served a years deployment in Iraq while going IA with the Marines. Since I met him, I knew he wanted to go back into the military. He always told me he hated civilian life, espeically since he's never had a 9-5 job. He's going to school to become a mechanic but he still wants to join the Army once he loses weight.
I'm not against him going in, I'm actually very proud of him. Plus I know a big reason he wants to go in is to help support me and my son. We're basically engaged, we've talked about it for a while. He's just trying to pay off my ring first before he asks officially. I know it'll be hard. It's hard not seeing him for a week, I know it'll be 100x harder once he goes on deployment. I'm trying to support him as much as I can while he gets ready to get in shape for the recuiter. (I'm already crying writing this lol) My cousin is in the Army and while him and his ex-wife were together, I saw how hard it was on her. I know it'll be super hard for me, but he's been so supportive through a lot of my stuff. I know I gotta be behind him, even though it hurts knowing he'll be gone for long periods of time.
For any of you military spouces, how did you prepare yourself? How did you cope once he was gone?
