Navy Bride, Navy Groom
My finance and I are both in the Navy. We've been together almost a year and half.
I've got 6 months left at this duty station and he has 4 months left.
We don't really have time or money to plan a full "white wedding" anytime soon. (we both work 12 hours shifts 5 days a week, he works 12 hour rotating shift work)
And if we're not married we can't fill out paperwork to get "co-located" for our next PDS.
Now I understand "co-location" can mean Washington and San Diego. And that there are no gaurentees. We could still end up San Diego and Norfolk.
However due to the job that we both have, there are only about 5 different ports we could end up in. (both gaurenteed a carrier, due to our job)
Now we are thinking a small wedding soon, in a chapel and then when we both have time and money (due to saving over time) due a bigger renewing of vows and take a honeymoon then,
Has anyone been in this boat??
