My Fiance just dropped some news on me this morning that he has been thinking for a while now that he wants to join the Marines. I have less than a year before I graduate with a bachelors in Health Administration. We aren’t even planning on getting married till 2015 after I graduate. We also have just purchased a home less than 2 months ago! I don’t know what has brought this up honestly. I know he has always thought about it but, I’m not sure what finally made him decide on this. Any ways I need to know if there is a way to have my fiancé live his new dream of becoming a Marine along with my dream of having a career. I don’t want to be the wife that doesn’t work (Which there is absolutely nothing wrong with this) and is always waiting around every day for him to come home. Maybe this is really mean of me but, we talked about our goals in life and the military was never a part of it till just now. I just have so many questions and he isn’t exactly one to get answers quickly and, I am kind of stressing out about this. Has anyone else been in this situation and, if so how does all this work? I know he will have to go through boot camp and all that but what about afterwards? Will we still be able to keep our home? Sorry so many questions. I by no means have anything against the Military my brother is a Marine as well so this is not coming from a bad place I support our military and my Fiance joining it’s just kind of out of no-where.
