First a little background info - my youngest son, 19, just started military service, actually, his basic training starts today! He's been in Fort Sill since Feb 28 waiting for his class to start.
He called me last night and was telling me about his life insurance policy. He told me that right now I'm the beneficiary and as soon as he marries his girlfriend she's going to be 50% and I'm going to be 50%. I asked him when he planned on marrying her and he said within the year! I'm thinking he's wanting to do it because he's homesick and misses her very much. I told him that he should worry about getting settled into the military lifestyle before rushing into something like getting married. My husband, who is a veteran, told me to tell him that he can't afford to be married to someone, as he just started military service, and that I should write him a letter explaining it.
I totally understand about being homesick, but want him to worry about himself for a little while. Am I off base? Thanks for reading!
