  • Wedding: September 2009

Welcome to military life.  I was/am in the same boat as you (no pun intended).  My fiance/husband is in the Navy.  We got engaged in July 2008, married by judge a week later for the same reasons you just stated.  Being a wife gives you WAY more benefits that just a fiance.  He left for deployment a few months later and is currently still on deployment.  We have our big wedding planned for this September, with him due back shortly before (god willing).  I have only told 3 people that I am married, I didn’t want to take anything away from my family since I am the first grandchild to get married.  I will tell you this I am so glad that I got married though.  It has taken anything away because I am planning to dream wedding.  I feel lucky that my husband is willing to marry me a second time.  I know he truly loves me for letting me have this day.  But in the eyes of the navy, I have so many more opportunities.  Not only have I’ve been able to communicate with the other wives without any problems, but it has made my planning less stressful.  You will be a beautiful bride come September, and an even more beautiful bride in May.  Much luck , and pick your head up, my dear.

I just wanted to send hive (((hugs))) your way. Try to keep a positive outlook, I know it’s going to be difficult to have you Fiance away for such a long time, but maybe you could look around in your area to find some fun activities  (as well as your wedding planning) to keep your mind occupied while he’s away. Then he’ll be home before you know it 🙂
