Um, hate to be a troll (a series of bad days…like, 6 months’ worth) but–fair warning–it won’t seem quite so funny once you’ve lived it for a few years.

@Yodelma:  I don’t know, I’ve been living completely apart from my husband for going on a year, and I still find it humorous!  Sure there are bad parts to the military life, and it’s not all roses and sunshine.  But, there are many amazing parts to it as well.  I’ve learned to take the bad with the good!

So… I love….
seeing him in uniform (swoon)
seeing him so proud of what he does
treasuring the precious few minutes/days/whatever we get together
knowing that his job does make an incredible difference in our national security
homecoming sex (let’s be honest, ladies Wink)
how much better our communication has gotten after having very sparce communication
job security
good healthcare
job opportunities after the military

What about everyone else?

I use to love putting together care packages. It was my best way of getting through things. By The Way Im not marrying a current armed forces member. Fiance was a full time reservist when he was younger and I dated atleast a half dozen military guys before meeting Fiance. I still feel a bond to the forces and am still in contact with one of my exs ( my parents where the only ones there to great him when he came back from afganistan).

@subbywife11:  I agree with all of the above! My Fiance is so proud of what he does too, and I am proud of him!  We are in an LDR right now, and I cherish every moment.

 

(And the sex, and the HOTNESS of him in his uniform, and when he gets saluted by a lesser ranking Airman that does it for me too….it doesn’t get any better than that 😉

@Yodelma:  Im with @subbywife11: It was hilarious, it sucks, but it is still amusing and I am glad people can find the humor in it. My Dh is not in the Navy, he is in the Coast Guard and though our deployments are not typically as long as some of the Navys I would like to think that I can understand. Being appart is never fun, but you have to find the humor in it unless you want to go insane.

@subbywife11:  Totally agree. I use to be AD as well and being dual military is tough. You have to laugh at things like this to help keep you going. Remembing all the thigns you love about it too like you said.

Over the years of being in this lifestyle is not that things get easier, you just learn to deal with it better.

 But none the less regardless of how long you have been “doing this” everyone has down days and its silly things like this that you have to laugh at to keep your spirits up!

@Yodelma:  I was kind of offended.  Granted, my Darling Husband is Air Force, but my parents were both Navy and didn’t live like this.  Darling Husband in particular puts me first, so it’s not funny when people make jokes about the military being that involved in our lives.  If that make sense.

@starrynight:  Different rates have different experiences, especially when it comes to family time (or lack thereof).  For example, I’m fortunate to have a hubby who was able to have a lot of downtime with me during his last shore duty (soon it’ll be a different story thanks to sea duty, blah!), but I know way too many people who have their boats/ships wrestle too much of their time away from families.  So coming from that perspective, I absolutely believe the military is that involved in our lives, and I think its important to be able to find the humor in it to get through the hard parts =)
