I’m so sorry!  It has to be so hard on you to deal with this.  I would wait for your FI to see what the Chain of Command says before officially changing dates, but it may be smart to move it until April so you almost definitely know he will be home. 

(I’m not military, so this is just my personal advice; other military bees may be able to give you better suggestions!)

So sorry you have to deal with this… Gotta love the military tho… this is not an uncommon thing, I tryed telling that to my friend who will be getting deployed soon, but they wont listen to me.

Sorry to hear about your fiance’s extended stay in Kuwait. My brother is in the army and also currently in Kuwait for 9 months, and anticipates coming home in March 2013. (He was deployed from Fort Benning last month.) I always hear about the army changing things as they go, unfortunately. In our case, my brother will be missing my wedding since I picked the October 2012 date before we learned he would be deployed.

 

Crossing my fingers for you for things to work out as easily as possible.

so sorry to hear this! i got engaged to my fiance right before he left for a deployment and we decided not to set a date until he got back in case this kind of thing happened. of course, the timing we would have liked would have totally ended up working but you never know with the military! March could still totally work for you but its definitely cutting it close. If his return date is going back and forth again and again, it might be safer for you to move the date to April to give you a little more cushion room and let you breathe a little! i know this is every future military wives’ worst nightmare! good luck!
