    Yayyy!!!  I'm sure that's a HUGE stress off your shoulders ;o)  I was just asking my FI if his leave for the honeymoon was approved for yet...he says he's good but I know I would be bonkers if it was a no-go...

    Best wishes!!

    Is he deployed? Because if he is, I cannot express my jealousy... My soldier is in Afghanistan and I know he would NEVER be allowed to take leave just to get married. So I just had to ask if he was actually deployed or what the situation was because your man AND his friends got permission for leave, and that just doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

    Also, congratulations :)

    Hi! And also thanks! And sorry you feel jealous. My FI is in the navy and he is currently deployed right now. So for our wedding, they won't be underway. Their ship will be in port. It was very nice that they all got approved for their leave since they all do the same jobs and have the same shifts. This has been a big weight on our shoulders too, cus our original wedding date was supposed to be back in August, but their deployment schedule had some changes so we had to move the date to March. But I'm glad that everything is turning out great so far!

    Oh! Okay!! Mine is in the Army, so that definitely makes a difference!

    Congratulations again, and I hope he stays safe :)
