    I just started school back

    so I'm so busy and stressed. I work 40 hrs and go to school part time. It makes it easier though when dealing with missing him because I feel I have bigger things to worry about that be depressed that he can't be here if that makes sense

    My husband's 21st birthday is tomorrow!

    He's deployed and not in any port right now so he'll be "celebrating" on the ship. I absolutely hate missing all of these special days normal couples would be able to spend together!

    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.

    My boyfriend asked me to marry him Sunday

    and then had to leave Monday. That's such a hard thing to deal with. So now I'm engaged at 17 and still in high school of course I'm going to get hate and rude comments from everyone but no one understands the situation.. Anyone going through the same thing ?

    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...
