Young Marine Wife

I am a newly wed to a marine. We got married 4 months ago and I have only seen him 6 days out of those 4 months. I knew what I was marrying into and so did he. It is rough at times but I know I will pull through it and so will he.  I am a young marine wife. I am 19 and he is 21. Yes we married young but we have also been together for 6 years. We have already been through alot. I miss him so much. I have yet to met any marine wifes that I can share things with. And I was hoping this site would help me with new friendships.

Sincerely- Ashley

hello<br />
i got married at a young age i was 19 and he was 21 and although we have been together about 14 months and hes been here for about five its tough. Theres something special about finding a marine or service member that even though you are apart he just means the world to you and no matter how long the distance its all worth it when they are home. well i would love to chat to any young military wives on here. my husband is currently deployed and this is our first deployment which is not easy. <br />

Oh your story hits close to home. I got married a month ago to my marine. we had 6 days together and then he was deployed. I just found out that we are expecting our first baby! Apparently 6 days was enough time lol! I miss my marine so very much but we have so much to look forward to when he comes back next year. Keep your chin up. Im here to talk.

Hey. My name is Heather.My husband and i got married just 3 weeks ago. I got to see him for 7 days before he went back to CA. We had to wait 5 months before we saw each other for 7 days. It's still hard and i miss him every day more and more. Thankfully, i get to go see him for 2 weeks for Christmas and New Years. But after that we are going to have to wait for 8 or 9 months before seeing each other again because he's going to deploy. :( But i'm a young marine wife as well i'm 18 and he's 20. We've only been together a year. I know, that's crazy. But it's one of those when you know you know type deals. anyways, i'm here if you need anything,

where is he stationed?

Hey I have a ? I dont know if any of you girls know but my marine and I want to get married next June. He will be in MOS in Florida. Will we be able to get married? And if he can, I heard that Marines aren't allowed to move their wives on base while in school. So I was just wondering if anyone knew anything? And any advice would be really nice also. I can't wait to be married!

I am going through the same thing. My husband and I got married in September of 07 and we gound out he was being deployed in January. He has beenin training from Jan until today. Today he is leaving for Iraq. I know exactly what you are going through and if you need someone to talk im here. Proud Marine Wife Jennifer

Hey Ashley

They probably wont deploy him (: My boyfriends brother is a reservist and hasn't been deployed and he has been a marine for two years!

hi, my name is alli. i just joined this site because im trying to find other women with things in common about this crazy life and the marine corp! im not sure if you check this often but i was just saying hello, was wondering where you guys are stationed and all that good stuff. keep on being stron for your man, and its all worthit in the end!

I think its amazing you got married young i'm 17 and getting married next year... i think when you know you know

I got married to my husband 1 week before he want to Iraq I know what you are going through just remember you have support in the wives!!

Hey. My name is Kathy and I am a young Army wife. I know its a little different but... I got married 2 months ago while my husband was home on leave from his deployment I did not get to see him 8 months before that and i will not see him for ANOTHER 5-8 months. My husband is in Afghanistan and he was also in Iraq last year. so i know exactly how you feel I recently turned 21 and all of my friends only want to go out to bars and clubs every day so i am pretty much on my own and it really sucks! I am also looking for friends in my situation so feel free to write me if your ever bored. TTYL
