Question: My boyfriend (19) and I (17) have been together for about a year and a half. He means the world to me. Recently he told me he wanted to join the army.. he and a few friends have an appointment to talk to a recruiter in a few days... I haven't spoken much to him about it and when I do I try to sound supportive even though I'm terrified. Say he gets in... what do I do? I'm honestly not sure if I, personally can handle that. Is it best fot us to break up? I know its in the future and we've got time but not much.. he talking about wanting to leave this year since he is graduated already.. I'm still in highschool finishing my jr. Year.. so its hard because I want us to work, I know there's got to be a future for us but with him in the army I dobt know how thatd pan out for us. I have so nany questions... can anyone relate? Any advice? I'm just so scared..

After the first 9 weeks (assuming he passes that part and stays out of trouble) he will have a 24 - 72 hour break where he can leave post. 5 weeks after that (after the entire 14 weeks) there will be a graduation you can attend. He will have 10 days of leave saved up by then which he can choose to use or not, depending on when his report date is. Once he gets to his unit, he'll have 30 days of leave a year he can use (he will gain 2 1/2 days a month), but he'll be limited on when he can use it because of the schedule so be patient. Also, don't expect to hear from him while he is at basic because he wont have access to his phone or a computer. Take up the old fashioned art of hand writing letters.

I hate to let you know but your love has a 99% risk of failure. My hubby is navy and i have visible it over and over. When you're simplest courting while he's at basic you are going to certainly not make it. I've obvious most mostly that people get married right after normal coaching after which divorce inside two years. I say reduce it off now and appear for anybody who will not spend 6 months of every yr fighting a struggle. Might be when you failed to believe it was a little bit bit genuine you wouldn't be so defensive. All i'm announcing is that i haven't noticeable it determine once but. Military life is rather a lot tougher than you're letting yourself realise.
