Hi, I've been a Navy wife for almost two years now. It will be a struggle for a little bit but if you're careful and watch carefully you'll be okay. I'm in almost the same situation. I have a bad shoulder and can't find work. A friend (who is also a Navy wife) has be babysit her son. It will be easier when you get married it will be better. He will get extra pay for have a wife and a son. What my husband and I did was we got married at the court house then had a family ceremony back home later on. That way I was able to get free medical care and everything. Also he will get more pay if you don't live on base. Let me know if you have any other questions.
