I am not married yet to my Marine. He just found that he is going to be stationed in Japan. If I were to marry him, would I be able to go with him? I already moved from my family in Indiana, and now live in Florida. We've been together for a year and and are both about to be 22. I love him. I want to go with him. I just don't know if they would let me. :/

HI My name is Brittany Ive come across alot of these postings about what steps to take to be with your husband or fiance in Japan. I just got married almost 3 moths ago and Im leaving for japan in 1. Scary right?! I have no idea what im doing or what will be available for me over there. It freaks me out being away from my family because I'm so young (18). But I get to be with my husband whom I've been away from since he left for bootcamp with very few visits. The next few steps are all up to your husband/fiance. He needs to go to D.E.E.R.S. and I.P.A.C. to get his orders changed to accompianied. Without that you would only be able to stay in Japan for a max of 90 days on a travel visa via assport.

Hi, my name is Belinda and my husband is stationed in Okinawa and I've been having problems finding out what steps i need to take to be with him. I also don't have a lot of contact with him. He is doing live amo training in mainland Japan for the next month. I was going to travel with the Peace Corps and I have my passport and required medical testing for aboard placement, but don't know where to go from here. Please help. :)

my Marine is going to be stationed in Japan after he finish his school on March, in San Diego Cali. I'm 9 weeks 6 days pregnant, and his Sgt. said that i can come. It's probably the biggest decision i had made in my whole entire life. it's so overwhelming! i'm worried, because i heard that Japan is an expensive country, where are we going live? am i going to be able to go to work, and school?... can anyone give me those information?? please? =(<br />

Hey ladies. Just came across this posting while searching online. Im due to move with my husband to japan, I am scared beyond words but so excited! I was wondering if any of you would mind giving me contact information. My husband seems awfuly busy there now, and i dont want to be in his way. And id love to have friends who know the ropes and wouldnt mind me tagging along til i can settle in. I have no one i know there and would really love the friendship and help! lol

I was supposed to move with my hubby to Japan back in June, but the Corps wouldn't allow me to be with him over there. I'd give nearly anything to be able to be with him, but he's only there for two years so I'll wait here. I hope things work out better for you. I hear Japan is awesome.

I am new here!<br />

My husband is an officer in the USMC, and we are currently living in Japan. <br />
<br />
I grew up very close to my family, and this is the first time I have ever lived away from them. (I am 32 years old). <br />
<br />
We left our home, our vehicle, and our dogs behind. It was one of the most difficult things I have ever done. <br />
<br />
However, like MrsSmith said, part of being a Marine wife (or military wife) is moving. Supporting your spouse is crucial, as well as making your marriage a priority. <br />
<br />
I really, really like Japan, and focus on the positive things I have a chance to experience--the food is amazing, the sights are gorgeous, and the people are so kind! <br />
<br />
Email, Skype, and cell phones all offer affordable ways to stay in touch with your family (I pay $30 a month and have unlimited calling to the US). Care packages and cards are also wonderful. <br />
<br />
Don't be afraid of an overseas duty station; there really is so much to do that if you stay positive and stay busy, time flies!<br />
<br />
And you will have wonderful experiences and skills when you leave (my Japanese is pretty darn good). The self-confidence you gain from being challenged, and succeeding, in a foreign country is amazing! <br />
<br />
Good luck, and keep us posted!<br />

I am moving to Japan with my soon to be husband in January (If everything goes according to planned we will be there for 3 years). I am excited to get to see another country, but very scared because I have never been away from my family. I chalk it up to a great life experience, and that I get to be with my soon to be hubby, who will be the person I start my new family with.

Well my husband is not stationed anywhere yet so i cant speak from experience; but moving away to places that require leaving family behind is part of what comes with being a marine wife so I think you should go and follow your husband Im sure everything will be fine. would you rather stay behind and miss him like crazy. Im moving to quantico for the basic school next year with my husband and i honestly cant wait!...Good luck!

So my marine said that there was a good chance that he would get stationed in Japan and I don't know if I can leave my family here

not yet but i do plan to!

Did you go? my Marine is not stationed yet , but when he does I am planning to go with him.
