So… my BF is making it a almost daily habit to bring up marriage. Im trying to stay with this Valentines challenge, but how do you do that if your SO keeps bringing it up? So, on the way from my BF sisters house (who is married with 2 kids, one on the way), he said that we should get married, buy a house together and get rid of his roommates. And on the way to his sisters house earlier that day, he said that we need to get married before I take a officer position (we are in the military). It makes me so frustrated, because I dont know when it will happen or if it will happen soon (I hope it does though).

All I know is if you are both enlisted or both officers, you are fine. But as soon as one of you becomes an officer (I’m guessing you’re green to gold?) it becomes taboo to get married. I know one person who did it, but it was a huge hassle, dock in pay, looked down upon, lots of trouble basically. It was a big nasty affair, sleeping with a sargeant and all. Not sure it’s a big deal if you get married first, then you go gold.
I think if your bf keeps bringing it up, you should sit down and hash out a plan with it all. THe military brings so many uncertainties (being a military wife myself) it seems to bode well to at least know what’s goign on.
