Well, the 4 male to 1 female thing should illustrate something to you.
It generates a response similar to a good looking female correctional officer gets from inmates. IE: might as well not have any clothes on, IE: you as a husband will not get any respect for being married and you probably WILL get into some *hit and tiffs over your own GOD DAM wife.
Also there are many rumours and truths to the military “soldier” lifestyle, not sure if it is the same for “officers”. In any case I’d suggest you research this before you dive in, it might be a more than you are willing to swallow.
Maybe things have changed for the better when I was in or in contact with those who where, or maybe it got even worse.
Some of the stories are pretty rediculous. But the stories are so common, you gotta wonder what the stats are.[/quote]
Well, that makes me pretty dang nervous. I’ve never hit another person in my life and I sure as heck don’t want to start now. And the no respect thing is what I thought would happen. Like I said, I have no military experience but a lot of the guys I know who were in the military were the macho type. I’m not trying to stereotype anyone. Lord knows i’ve met plenty of macho guys who weren’t in the military. And I also have a ton or respect for everyone in the military.
I just don’t know if it’s for me. But at the sametime I want to support my wife and make her happy. We aren’t going to rush into this decision. And she said she wouldn’t do it unless I was 100% in it with her.
I also have talked to people who were in and they have said the same thing about the rumor mill. That would be hard to deal with. Having her deployed somewhere and hearing rumors about what is going on.
