    I Love My Marine

    Being married to a Marine isn't the easiest thing to do. It can be a pain that is for sure. You never know when he's coming home and then they get deployed and you don't know when they are coming home. But it's worth every moment. I wouldn't trade it for nothing in the world. I...

    I could definitely use some advice!

    I've been dating a deployed marine for a little while now, and I really like him. I can tell he feels the same way. The problem is we used to talk all the time, and now not so much; not necessarily because he's busy. He doesn't like talking about himself much at all. Whenever I...

    He hasn't thought about our future.

    When we talk about that, he always say "maybe", "someday" or "later". I know he's still young to think about that but I'm not... I will be 31 soon!!!! And all what I want in my life is HIM ! :(

    So it looks like I freaked out

    for no reason. He was home for 10 days and it was amazing. Things were probably better than ever and now he's off to his next training so I have no contact for 29 days. This is crazy and hard but dang, I love him. Hoping these days go fast. Hoping everyone else is good. :)

    So we are getting married in June ?

    He keeps saying that he doesn't want me to regret marrying him in the long run. I always remind him that I said yes when he proposed and I obviously thought about this being a possibility some day. The question is, is HE ready?
