Marine Girlfriends & Marriage.
It's hard to defend mine and my Marine's plans for the future with marriage and a family when everyone is so negative about Marines getting married. His mom joined a group for Marine mom's and one of them said that she is against her son gettign married and having a family since he decided to go into the Marines. I can understand that they are skeptical because so many girls target Marines so that they can use them and get money. But those of us that have been with our Marines long before they enlisted, find it very insulting that Marine mom's have this vision of us. Mom's say that those boys that became Marines, that have had the same gf for years don't know what else is out there and that they would rather have their sons run around being premiscuous with random girls than to be in love and have a solid relationship with one girl that loves him. My Marine and I have been together for 4 years on and off. More time together than apart, but the fact is that we both know what else was out there and we both decided that we are the ones for each other. We have plans to get married adn have a family in the future, but that isn't for about 2-3 years. I just wish that Mom's could see that not all Marine gf's are gold diggers and that some of us actually care. Of course it's not going to be easy, no marriage is easy to begin with, but Marine gf's have it perhaps worse than others. It makes it that much more difficult, but it takes a special kind of girl to be a Marine gf and there are very few of us that will be able to handle it. But those of us that can, would appreciate the support from at least the families.
