    In 2 days I will be an Army Wife.

    This is not the life I had expected; my father was Special Forces and I always said I would NEVER marry into the Army but I am. I love my fiance, and I know this will be hard but I am excited to start a life with him. Being a soldier is his job, it's not who he is. Who he is a...

    I am confident in our relationship

    but sometimes I do get scared and have moments of doubt. I honestly feel like our relationship is just sort of a countdown until we get married.

    and graduation and I am so very excited. It's just a few hours out. It has been so long without him. I know there will be harder times in the future but one day at a time, right? I am just going to enjoy every moment I can get with him.

    It's our anniversary and knowing him he will probably forget because he has so much other stuff on his mind and all day I'm going to have the constant reminder that he isn't here more so than most days.

    My boyfriend hasn't brought up marriage anymore.

    But whenever we talk about the future and his next duty station after he comes home from deployment he'll say like "when we move" or "when we find out where our new station will be" I get really excited because I know he still sees me in his plans.

    I HATE those grumpy military wives

    that are against young marriage. Like, it's okay for you to be against it but having age on your side does not make you more likely to succeed. Do NOT try to talk anyone out of it or make a big fuss of their decision. Try until you can't try anymore. We'll never know until we...
