It’d be shitty if they made you stay an extra 10 months just because they decided to deploy. 🙁 I hope things work out for you…

aawww hun you are doing your duty to your country
he knew you were in the military and he is still marrying you
just think of it this way if you do go its only 10 months sucks
but after that just dont re-enlist
im a soon to be military wife not in myself but just do what you think is right
and talk to him when you are ready to
have you thought about getting married before you are deployed if you go
judge signing the paper and name change if you have time
then getting the nice one once you get back?

Aw, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you! keeping you for 10 months before you’d even get deployed seems extreme. If you were going to get out in August or Sept I’d say there was a good chance they’d keep you… but 10 months + deployment is a pretty long stop-loss. Hoping for you!

Thank you for serving our country. I pray that your wedding plans can go through as you originally planned.
