Boyfriend Joining the Army

Military Wives and Girlfriends: My Guy Is Joining Up

This post comes from the Military Wives and Girlfriends group in our TrèsSugar Community. If you have any advice, please add it in the comments!

The ARMY runs deep in my family. My grandfather was in Vietnam, my uncle was in Desert Storm, and my Dad almost made a career out of the air force. There have been countless people before them in my family who had military carrers. When I was younger I swore to myself that I wouldn't get involved in the military life, but of course the inevitable has happened.

About two and a half years ago I met this awesome guy and fell instantly. Well today he just broke the news to me that he's decided to join the ARMY. I'm to the point of I don't know what to do. Although we met so long ago, we've just recently been talking about relationships and decided to take the major leap from just friends to dating. I'm extremely worried about him, that something will happen and he'll be deployed to Iraq and die. I really do care for him, but I'm not quite sure that things will work out. I know that some people are able to adjust to this transition just fine. But I also realize that it's not something for every woman in the world.
