28 Things You Should Know About Us :)

1.)If she wasn't emotional before, that is all about to change.


2.) You getting a higher rank could just mean an automatic free lay.


3.) Get her a pair of your dog tags, ASAP, This is crucial, she will never take them off.


4.) Most of the time, you losing reception during training is your fault. (Though, she will eventually understand)


5.) Most of the time, everything is your fault. (This especially goes for when she is pregnant)


6.) She WILL start talking like your guys and you talk, including using your last names.


7.) Her patriotism could out-do most of your men... she will be proud... VERY proud.


8.) Be Ready: your car will end up with a yellow ribbon magnet or an "I LOVE MY _____" sticker eventually.


9.) She will most likely need a pair of dog tags to hang from the car's rearview mirror.


10.) Every week she'll have "another song" that makes her think of you when you're away. (And she'll cry to it, even when you're in the same room)


11.) If youre married, she may know the base better than you do... Don't take it personal.


12.) You will catch her comparing your relationship with "other couples" in the military constantly.


13.) She'll make 5 million friends online, and talk to you about them all the time because her "old friends just don't understand" like they do.


14.) Don't be shocked when she just drops civilian chicks out of her life like flies. (She mostly does this when they complain to her)


15.) DO NOT if you love her, say anything about you not wanting to make her wait for you...


16.) Most women actually do LOVE it when you are sweaty and dirty, even the girlie girls. It's sexy as hell.


17.) Only bring up the field once, say it clear, and don't bring it up again. We will remember the time, the dates, like stone inside our mind. Don't remind us.


18.) You ARE our hero. That isn't us being cute, it's us swelling with pride, feeling like a princess every time we glance over and you're standing there.


19.) Don't worry about waking her up when you get a chance to call, trust me, she's NOT sleeping. If she is, she's been waiting for you to call all night, and fell asleep next to the phone.


20.) Leave at least 3 of your shirts for her... she'll wear them all the time and if she doesn't wear them out she WILL wear them to sleep.


21.) No matter what she was like before, she is tough & harder than a rock now. She can handle anything, she will get through it, tears or no tears.


22.) Don't be discouraged or taken back from her strength. It comes with the territory. When in your arms, she's still your princess, soft and sweet.


23.) Your kids might see mommy as the one in charge for a while, it's okay, they WILL respect you, just give it time.


24.) EVERYTHING in her life will be complicated, so she might actually need your support and encouragement.


25.) Tag Chasers are her WORST enemy, she CAN and WILL spot these girls... random profain comments may come out of your little queens' mouth...its okay, she's protecting her best asset...you.


26.) She will spend hours to look good on cam & pics for you, this is just a past-time until you get home, be prepared for messy ponytails and comfy pants when you finally do get home.


27.) Her favorite sentences from you start with "when i get home" or "when i get out".


28.) No matter how much she's changed, never forget that you mean the world to her, she loves you more than anything, and you will ALWAYS be her hero.. whether you think you are one or not

All so true! Love it!

Haha, one soldier says to not go overboard about the mindset of a military relationship and a Marine says he wishes his girl would do some of these things...(comments below). Well I guess every relationship is different and we all need to figure out how to adapt and tailor ourselves to better it. Personally, my husband loves it when I am proud of him but could really care less about specifics. He loves me for who I am and I him- after all, the military is a big part of our lives but it's not our whole life. It's hard to deal with the separations but sometimes I just want to get away from talking about it and just be a couple, not a "Marine couple"- y'know? :)

I absolutely loved this! I am currently in a long distance relationship with my marine. I live in Australia and he resides in Washington. It has been nearly 2 years since we began dating and have known each other for nearly 4 years. We do visits and communicate as much as possible, as well as doing everything else that is possible to feel closer to each other. Ours is a unique and challenging relationship and I wouldn't have it any other way. : ) I enjoy reading stuff like this and can't wait to share it with my marine. : )

Ladies... with all due respect, but I think your are the most important part of the civilian life of your partners, so act like this. If there's anything your partner doesen't wanna hear about then it's the military after he got home. Its ridiculous to talk like them or talk the whole time if you'd understand. Because you don't. My husband worked in the military for 8 years and I'm still serving. The funny thing is - we never talked about army stuff that much, because when we met then it was as man and woman not as spc and sfc. Don't be stupid and take away the only civilian part in his life he may has. You can be proud and all that stuff, but please don't think you would get this whole army stuff your partner needs to deal with. Try to get what he's doing but your partner has enough **** to deal with- so let the army be the hard part in his life.

I see where you're coming from, but my marine prefers for me to understand what he's talking about. So yeah to a certain degree, you don't want to seem childishly like a fangirl, but you want him to still feel like he can tell you everything and share every feeling that he can't express outside the house.

I have to show this to my boyfriend ASAP

So true! Made me tear up a bit :'( man I miss him...

I am a United States Marine also; the problem is I don't get any of this. My wife and I have been together for a little over two years almost three, and I never feel like I get any appreciation for her for all the hard work I have done. After reading this I would be lucky to even get her to think about wearing anything of mine, or even representing who I am to anyone. It is pretty upsetting and makes me wonder sometimes wether or not she really even cares at all. Great post though maybe one day it will happen to me.

I guarantee you if you cry about it, she'll straighten up. If not, you need a new girlfriend.

Love this. i showed it to my boyfriend and i highlighed the dog tags one and i said THIS IS THE PRIORITY. lol<br />

You forgot: while your husband is away, you have the opportunity to enjoy getting gang banged by a horde of men.

Well i mean technaically i have everything that belongs to him but those are the two that are used the most. and the one about everything in her life is complicated so true and the last name one i am friends with his roommates family and they call him brandon and he calls him wilson and the other day i called wilson brandon and trey was like who i dont know a brandon last i checked his name was wilson and i just laughed and said excuse the heck out of me lol. My co-worker now has started calling me Harrison which is Trey's last name and my soon to be last name. lol.

lol i love it!!

<3 love this

These are all very true. I really like the one about using last names most of his friends I only know them by their last names and then every once in awhile he will call them by their first names and I have no idea who he is talking about.

Love This!! Thanks for sharing it!!
