congratulations to you and him!

my Fiance is in the coast guard so I can relate to what you are going through and have concerns with his schedule too, though it is a bit less sporadic as yours may be.

we also thought about getting married now and then having the wedding in a year as planned. he mentioned it and i didnt want to do it. and then when our date was coming up for a year away I mentioned it to him. but he siad he would but we would only have the party a year from now not the whole ceremony over and i did not want to do that. I actually didn’t want to do it at all because I dont know it just felt weird but could see the benefits in it. and i would have only done it on the same date as our wedding date so now that it has passed we are over that discussion part.  

it will depend on your situation if he is going to be far away from you where he gets stationed. we got lucky and he got a station only 3 hours from where I am. I have one more year of grad school left..and will finish a month before our wedding date. so I can’t move at this time anyway which was another reason we didn’t say i do this year and can wait until we can really be together next year. oh how i can’t wait. 


ps. there is a whole military section on the boards here!
