To Early??

Auston is going on his 5th week in boot camp right now. We've been together for 2 years and (it'll be 5 months August 1). In his letters he's been talking about getting married and getting engaged when he's done with all his trainings. I know I love him and I want to spend the rest of my life with him but people keep telling me it's to early for him to be making those plans and we should wait until his first deployment...I just want to know that he is "legally" with me while he's away...there's some kind of comfort in that. Any advice at all?

It's all your decision, it's your life, you have to be happy living it. You've been with him long enough to know him. It's scary to think if a deployment will change a man you feel you know so well and love, but nothing will change the fact that being married or not you are supporting him and waiting for him to return just the same as he is. I know me and my marine are waiting till after he gets back from his first deployment (which he deploys in November and will return sometime next summer) to then decide is we want to get engaged and if we do we want to get married before his second deployment. It's crazy to think we've planned so far ahead but that's the lifestyle of being with a military man. I know without a doubt that is the best route for my marine and I, and no one will stop me from marrying him before his second deployment if all things go well and he returns the man i love from his first deployment. I think you need to decide what is the best route for you and your marine. And if that route is what will make you happy then don't let anyone talk you out of it. Good luck :)

If you love him and you know that spending the rest of your life with him would make you happy as can be, do it. I have been with my boyfriend for 4 years and some people still say its too early to get engaged. But u will always have people tell u that. Follow ure heart. Not ure friends opinions. My bf also is in basic and has been hinting at engagement. Just do what YOU want, not everyone around u :)
