Living On Base Vs. Off

Hi girls.  Once my fiance is stationed I will be moving with him (we'll be married at that point).  I know this is really an opinion question, but  I'm looking for the pros/cons of on base living vs. off base living.  Does anyone have experience that could help?  Thanks so much!

well im moving in with my boyfriend when he get back from afgan (we will be married before i move) and he wants to live off base because right now he lives in the barracks and feels like he never leaves work.. he always sees the same people that he works with and hangs out with them too... so it will be a get away for him to come home to a place off base.. but for me i could go both ways... i grew up on a military base so its no biggy to me!

Life would be great if I wasn't used to paying bills :) Thank you both. We have 2 cats so I know it would be easier to find off base living that accepts cats than if we had a dog. I do like the perks of living on base. I guess we'll have to see when the time comes! I figure we'll be living off base first while we are waiting for a house on to come available. It will give us a taste of both lives.
