Questions for those against young military marriage      


So you’re saying if your significant other got badly injured, you’d be okay with not being by their side in the hospital because you’re not considered family?

God forbid your significant other never returned from deployment, you’re okay living the rest of your life knowing you didn’t take the…

Not only do I agree 100 percent with all of this, but it’s also just a matter of wanting to spend as much time as possible with your loved one, not just in case he’s KIA, but because you want that person to be a part of your life as much as possible. Yes, divorce rates in the military are high, but I would much rather spend a couple of years full of love and happiness with my husband and have it end in divorce than be thousands of miles away from him, miserable, and break up after a few years. And one thing I don’t think people understand is that divorce doesn’t happen just because two people got married young. It happens when a marriage just doesn’t work out. & being married to someone in the military is a lot tougher than being married to someone who works a 9 to 5 job and has a week long business trip every now and then. When your husband is gone for months at a time and you haven’t heard from him for weeks it’s a crazy feeling. All of the worry, stress, distance, it takes a toll on some relationships. I’d say that’s a pretty good reason why divorce rates are high and something I’ve seen happen so many times.


I have to move across the country in 22 days and we still have nothing set up for this move, and no way to set anything up.


Anonymous said: People are allowed to miss their significant other regardless of the situation. It's not a pissing contest because you've been through worse.

Which is exactly what I said. Did you even read what I wrote? I specifically said that whether someone is gone for a day or a year, you’re going to miss that person SO much. & that’s completely fine. But just like people are allowed to miss someone, it also means people are allowed to be irritated, which is what I was.

It wasn’t the fact that she is talking about missing him, I have sat and listened to a number of my friends countless times about how they miss their significant other without being annoyed. It’s the fact that I was being so supportive and nice about it when I will be in the same exact position (missing my husband/she misses her boyfriend) at the same time as her, and she said absolutely nothing positive to me about my situation. Basically SHE was making it the pissing contest. That’s what’s irritating. She was being really rude to me about my husband being gone when I was so nice to her about her boyfriend being gone. That’s the part that pissed me off.

But regardless of the situation, this is my blog and I’m allowed to write how I’m feeling and rant about what I want. It was a “read more” entry and you’re the one that decided that you wanted to read my thoughts and feelings.

This is the first thing Bowser does when Cody gets home from work. Every. Single. Day.

Today is my anniversary! I am beyond grateful that I get to spend this day with Cody since last year I was unable to. I love my husband more than anything in the world and it brings me joy everyday knowing that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.


So annoyed of hearing people talk about their government conspiracy theories.
