Who watched the Royal Wedding?? I lucked out being in Japan and didn't have to wake up early to watch it! Wasn't her dress GORGEOUS??? *sigh* I wish I were a real life princess!
1. Have you and your spouse agreed to live in separate locations (a geographical bachelor tour) knowing that the short-term inconvenience would have long-term benefits for your family? How did it work for you?
When we started talking, we lived in separate states. It stayed that way until we moved out here actually. He was in different schools for the Marine Corps and I had my job and obligations in New Mexico. When we got married, he was finishing his engineer school and only had a few months left, so we decided to keep it long distance until we moved out here. We would fly back and forth every month or so to visit each other and it worked pretty well. It wasn't always fun being apart, but we knew we would eventually get to live together.
2. What is your favorite thing about being a MilSpouse?
I love the people I've met. Living on base, I'm surrounded by people who know exactly what I'm going through. I can look around and know that someone has already been through whatever I'm going through
and they made it through, and so will I.
3. If you could still have your spouse/significant other and your family, but take the military life out of it…would you?
If my husband weren't in the military, we wouldn't have met. I have my moments of complaining with the Marine Corps, but I do love what he does. I'm proud of him and I wouldn't take away the huge part of who he is.
4. What have your homecoming experiences been like after a year long tour of separation?
We haven't been separted that long yet.
5. If you have a child(ren) why you chose their name(s)? If not, why you would name your child something?
No kids yet. We have names picked out for future kids, but I'll post those when we actually get to that point!
