    I haven't talked to him in over a week. This is the first deployment I've ever had to go through with him. Before I met him, I knew nothing about the military & didn't really care. The last person to be in the military in my family was my grandpa, back in like the 50s. I have...

    why I continue to put up w/ my fiance's bullshit and I say it's because I still see the man he used to be in him, I've taken so much crap from him since he left last year and everyone keeps say no leave him and I don't listen because I know! He's gonna come around or at least I...

    One day, he looked at me

    and said, "Baby, I'm sorry for the Navy thing. I hate to put you through this." I looked him in the eyes and said, "I'm sorry for going to medical school to be a cardiologist." He said, "What do you mean? That's been your dream. I can't hate you for that." I said, "and I can...

    He's getting stationed in Japan -

    for 3 years. It's a 16 hour time difference. I'm freaking out. I feel like I'll never be able to talk to him (video chat) since our time schedules will be so different. Anyone have any advice?

    Even if I only get to talk to him

    once a day its all worth it because when I get text messages like this, all my hours of waiting for a phone call or text pay off and I am seriously so luck to have such a great, loving navy man by my side .

    It's easy to walk away

    and date a civilian. But instead, we check our phones every second hoping for that five minute phone call or three word text message. We break down and cry when we miss him. We force that smile because the pride and love for our men is stronger than anything else. We cherish...

    The Wonderful World Of The Emotional Rollercoaster

    Anyone who had a loved one in any branch of the military knows this ride all too well, and sadly for us, it isn't a ride we can get off easily. Just when you have one foot out of the rollercoaster car, the ride takes off again. I am (of course) no exception to this wonderfully...
