Advice on dating military men
There was no particular email or conversation that got me thinking about this topic. By the way, this post may contain affiliate links and this blog is for entertainment purposes only.If you want to get married to a Marine, and stay that way, you've got to realize, you can't make any major life decisions beginning six weeks before he deploys until six weeks after he gets back.If you do, it'll drive you crazy, because both of you are out of your mind right now." That was the best advice I ever received, and truly one of the major reasons why my husband and I are still (happily) together.While we, of course, always love to hear from those who are married to members of the military, this time we wanted to hear from those who have not yet said, “I Do”!Having a relationship with someone in the military can present many challenges (married or not) BUT there are also incredible blessings and lessons learned. They can be tough for people in the most exclusive, committed relationships.If you know that you want to be with that person and you’re committed, then go for it! If your whole identity is wrapped up solely in your service member, it is going to be a tough, lonely life.
Before my husband deployed to Iraq for the second time, he and I went through a particularly rough patch in our relationship, and found ourselves fighting, literally, all the time.We fought about stupid things, things that didn't matter, but for some reason, neither of us were willing to let anything go.
