on active duty, in the United States Air Force and i am very proud of that fact.
I am serving in the military in the mental health career field.
3) If you are someone who needs to live close to your family, do not date or marry someone in the military. Do not anticipate that you will get them to leave it and do something else.
You will move a lot, potentially in far flung places around the world. 5) If you have a very defined career path that requires a specific location & number of years spent in one place a military partnership will make that very difficult. If you want a big career that demands you live in a particular area, or long years in one place, don't date people in the service.
A military spouse works with uncertainty and danger every day.
If that isn't something you handle well it will add a lot of stress to a service member's life, which isn't fair to them.
I woke up this morning and my dad was in my living room.
He never comes over unless I forgot to do something or he just wants to talk.
8) Consider that in a local or national emergency if is likely your service member will be called to serve the country or local community.
He will text me one day then the next day I will not hear from him.
He tells me he is excited that I am moving in with him and tells me...
They will likely not be available to take care of you.
You will need to make plans and be ready to stand up and act on your own to protect yourself and your family.
This is a given in the military and other professions like medical, fire and law enforcement.
