Changes

Where do i start....

My fiance and i have lived together for 7 months now been dating a year and some change, things were perfect until two days ago. Eddie got orders to Japan for two years unaccompanied of course since we are only engaged and not recognize by the marine corp. He leaves in may and even tho its over seas he will only be making 500$ over his base pay and the cost of living over there is so high that he wont have much left over after that. And with him gone i wont be able to support myself. So not only am i losing my man but my whole life is going to change and i don't know what to do. I don't want to leave the place that we called home, the place filled with our memories. But i don't have a choice. Where do i go from here?

He told me that since the orders were already made with him being single that even if we did get married that it would not change anything and I still would not be able to move with him.

this is for auditman, i was married b4 i met eddie (my fiance) and i never lived with my ex husband b4 we got married and that crashed and burned. Eddie and i living together was to get to know each other better and see if some day we might say i do. When Japan happened i was willing to get married but he was not, he thinks if we get married to make things easier or for the money then it is for the wrong reasons and i agree. I would fallow him anywhere but right now we just need to get threw this and see where we are in two years

take out loans and maybe get a degree thats a year or so like medical assisting.... there are alota options but the first thing is getting you a good job to support yourself!! things will work out and with a good job, you just may be able to keep the place with all your memories :)
