Information on dating a marine
You’ve read my posts about for an army girlfriend, navy girlfriend, or military girlfriend.There are certain things that strong military relationships have.Before my husband deployed to Iraq for the second time, he and I went through a particularly rough patch in our relationship, and found ourselves fighting, literally, all the time.We fought about stupid things, things that didn't matter, but for some reason, neither of us were willing to let anything go.She simply smiled and said, "Let me give you a piece of advice, honey.If you want to get married to a Marine, and stay that way, you've got to realize, you can't make any major life decisions beginning six weeks before he deploys until six weeks after he gets back.

It comes easy for some women while it breaks others.So, if you want to meet and then date a Marine, let me tell you how. If you are now wanting to know how to date him, it’s simple. I don’t think I need to provide details there, you should get it. Please don’t be the military equivalent of a lot lizard. Those women who hang around just to snag a military guy? If you meet a guy you like that happens to be in the military, then fine.
Which got me thinking about how many other pearls of wisdom are floating out there in our military wife community, waiting to be discovered.
Yeah, there are definite perks to being a military spouse. Not all perks apply to girlfriends, sorry, but it’s true. That isn’t always because they don’t want to, it just works out that way. Most of my friends work and if they can’t, then they volunteer their time. We came from small town, middle of nowhere Missouri, which most would call not so awesome. They can last anywhere from a few months to over a year. You are there a month, trying to find your way around while driving on the wrong side of the road.
