…a relationship is two people. Not two people and everyone who has an opinion.


God Bless this woman. It can’t be said any better then that.

Things that start to happen when you're in a military relationship

You watch a lot of movies/tv shows pertaining to the military.

You become weirdly attached to things like old movie tickets, sweatshirts, letters, etc.

You would rather stay home and text your SO on a Friday night than go out to the bar.

You wonder if you’re actually in a relationship with your phone.

You become very patriotic.

You enjoy not having to shave your legs.

Your heart aches every time you see someone in camis.

You feel a close bond with milsos you meet online because they know what you’re going through.

You know it’s rough, but you also know that every bitter goodbye leads to an even sweeter reunion.

Things every milso learns quickly

-Mood swings are really hard to avoid

-Sometimes your soldier is a different person every month & you need to learn to understand that 

-Sometimes he’s clingy and other times he’ll go a week with almost complete silence

-You can’t “fix” him. You love him for the person he is. 

-He may not want to tell you about his day because he doesn’t want to hurt you with what’s really going on out in the world.

But he loves you more and more each day. He’s protecting the people he loves and that destroys him at the same time. He may not be able to say how he feels in words, but his heart is still true when he comes home.
