i am in high school and i am engaged and my fiance wants to go into the marines. his grandpa has him taking a test this summer and he is going into a division that he doesnt want to go into. i mean yea he wants to go because its in the family and all but i dont know how to handle it. we have been fighting lately and its stressing both of us out. we are trying too make it work but i just dont want to see him go but im sure it would be easier on you because yall are out of school. i hope it goes good for yall.

I remember that feeling, him leaving for Japan. My husband deployed twice to Japan and then we got accompanied orders to Okinawa, Japan for three years. I loved Japan, if you get a chance fly over for a visit. Remember you can attempt to MAC flight over and that doesn't cost much. I would suggest that you go without the boys. Its hard with the time difference on kids.

Hi Stefy! My husband is in the Air Force and is also in Japan. He has been over there for about 3 months. He is stationed over there for 3 years. We have a 4 year old daughter. I know exactly how you are feeling!! It's not easy. How long is your husband in Japan for?

Hi Stefy! My husband and I have been married for almost 3 weeks now. I know how you're feeling. We had only a week to spend together after we got married. He deployed to iraq, and I'm serving in Korea. I know how hard it must be. We don't have any kids yet, but I miss him terribly and try not to worry, but sometimes I do. Sometimes I don't even feel like eating, and spend most of the time in my room, because when I do try to express how I'm feeling no one wants to talk or listen. Just know that I understand how you must be feeling. I will pray for your family, and the safety of your husband. God Bless
