I Never Thought I Could Handel Being A Military Gf Or Wife

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 102 People

    My boyfriend is in the marines.

    We've only been together for a couple of months and he's getting deployed in October. I won't get to see him right before he leaves because he is based so far away. I'm scared that he'll forget about me while he's away. This is both of our first deployment. Any advice?!
