In the short time I've been welcomed into the Hive, I've scoured the boards and various blogs to discover that I must be the ONLY active duty Bride on the site!!
There has to be other military Divas out there who do the d*yumed thang on the daily. If you're an active duty Army (Huuuuah!), Marine, Navy, or Air Force Warrior who does it all as only an American Woman can... this is your opportunity to introduce yourself. Having said that...
I'm a newly engaged Army Diva, currently serving in SE Asia. I'm the One who walks around Khandyland with a weapon slung across my shoulder, an extra magazine in my calf-pocket, and MAC lipglass on my lips. My Fi is an insanely brave civilian who counts the days more diligently than any of my Soldiers mothers!! Now that you know a little bit about me, I'd love to learn a lil bit about you and your Bridal experience! Until then!!
There's at least one Navy lady on here, but the rest, I'm not sure.
Sorry I'm not one. :( (Although, I have considered since I met him and it kind of makes a lot of sense.)
oh, looks like thomaskezar is one
Thank you for scouting the Hive Ellabee! I've been in the military for well over 10+ years, I'm a single parent, and I've just about been there...done that. If you've any questions, you are more than welcome to message me. Oh!! And I AM definitely not a recruitor!! So there are no worries there ;)
im not active duty, but im national guard! :)
I'm not military, but I'm grateful that you are and for your service. :)
Im not active duty, but Im a military wife (USAF).
Welcome to the hive! I love MAC lipgloss too. :)
i'm a military SO, if that makes you feel any better.
Hmmm...let me rephrase this:
As there seem to be only a handfull of Active Duty Brides in the Hive, I'd LUV to hear/read about the Bridal experiences of my Reserve & National Guard sisters-at arms. If by chance, you happen to be deployed OR have had to conduct allot of planning remotely as a result of a deployment... I'd especially LUV, LUV, LUUUUV to hear from you!!
I hope this opens the floor a lil bit better ;)
You go girl, just got off active duty (Navy). I put off getting married until now, it was damn hard to try to juggle both military demands and relationship demands. Not that I wasn't in relationships but my ex-s were in the military as well so always a long distance thing. I think thats cool your guy supports you, I found it almost impossible to date civilain guys, I think it bothered them that I had manlier job than they did . Anyway, congratulations and diva it up you have earned it!
@arinda: Congrats on being free of Uncle Sugar and his many long-distance demands!! I envy you!!! Between dual-military relationships & civilian-military relationships...the very fact that we continue to put ourselves out there is cause for a celebration of the grandest kind! As for finding a supportive man...I don't know how THAT happened. But I am insanely happy that he did. The fact that I'm licensed to fold him in half or dot his eye from 300 meters gives him endless bragging fodder, as he likes to remind his friends that he's 'won' the ultimate Woman. Who knew?!?!
Anywho..your comment solidified my initial post. Because noone other than a Woman who serves/served knows what We deal with everyday simply because of our gender. For instant madness...add relationship and a deployment!! LMBO
I was Active duty through my wedding plannning process. Got out a little over a year ago now! : ( Medical reasons!!!
You're not alone. We're both Active Duty and affiliated with the Department of the Navy. I'm older but he outranks me. Our dates of promotion are on the same day too. :) He's a Marine Infantry Officer, I'm a Navy Officer in the Nurse Corps. We BOTH know how to hurt you! They, the USMC, just have better advertising. :). We met over and struck up a friendship in SE Asia in 2011, then I returned to CONUS. We didn't start to officially date until I was here for 4 months. We're 16/17 time zones apart but love knows no distance.
It's 1JAN13 and this is my first post. :) I can't wait for our relationship to progress so that I can share more stuff. Ooorah, get some!!!!
I'm active duty too! Getting maried May 2013 to an my active duty FI...pray for us lol
I'm royal navy/ h2bs RAF. But I'm not active service at the moment and I'm not american so I "don't do it all as only an american woman can" whatever that is supposed to mean :P
Active Navy/Navy couple here! One east coast one west coast. Typical navy.
all of ya'll are very appreciated!
this comes from a woman who's been a spouse, engaged to a retiree, and all my friends are either in, or have been in. all my gf's, are or were spouses, 2 were AF and Army, and my youngest FSIL is active Army. it definitely makes socializing hard since we're all so spread out, but I wouldn't have it any other way!
AD USN recently wed to the love of my life, also AD USN. We're gearing up for our honeymoon here in a week, and then this summer his first deployment, and within a couple months of his return, maybe less, mine. We have never been away from each other longer than a week, so we have become quite co-dependent. I cried for the 1st time thinking about it yesterday :/
AD USAF here dating a AD USAF.....have established we will get married, just not the when/where.....it needs to be figured out soon though since we are both PCS'ing in 10-11 months each and where I am hoping to go he can't go unless he does a year away or we go married.....I know my preference....lol
@luvbug080688: I don't know how it is for the Air Force, but for the Navy to put in a collocation request you have to be married for at least 1 year.
@NaijaPuertoDorian: i have no idea...i will have to look into that. thanks!
@MsChievous08: Don't forget the Coast Guard :) I left active duty last July, now I'm a reservist :(
FI is still active.
I plan on changing branches. Just trying to figure out which one is the right fit.
I'm a serving member of the British Army as is my OH, we're on the process of discussing marriage as the British military won't recognise our relationship unless we are legally married. We're both due postings/drafts in Aug this year and it's very difficult as we're hoping to end up near each other but knowing the military we'll end up on opposite sides of the world, so I feel all your pain :-)
I got engaged to a Navy Submariner this last September, and he is currently on deployment. He'll be back 3 weeks before the wedding :(
@navybride0428: are you in too?
Me Too!!! I am the wife of an Active Duty Staff Sargeant (I always f up the spelling) in the US Army!!!
My fiance and I are both active duty Navy in the medical field. YOURE NOT ALONE!
