I love the military life but I could have gone either way. I considered joining myself after college but couldnt bear the thought of being deployed away from my family. I am happy the way it turned out.. All I need is DH and our family and I am good wherever the Army sends us.
I could go either way too. I like most things about it, but there are of course things you miss out on. Lately I've really been wishing we could settle down and buy our own home. A place where I could plant a lasting garden, put up a tree fort for my kids, and not share walls or a yard with neighbors. If dh wasn't military I think that's where we'd be in life right now. But then we would have missed out on all the great places and people we've met along the way.
Dh and I did choose this life. He joined after we'd been married 3 years. If I had said that I really didnt want him to join, he wouldn't have. But we both thought long and hard about this lifestyle and if it was worth doing.
Thanks to Bokkechick for my siggy.
I remember when DF told me he was joining the army.. of course that was 10 years ago and we were just friends, but at the time I asked him if he'd lost his mind! When I think about the deployments, I still think he has lost his mind! The harsh enviroments/conditions they have to endure, not to mention they're far from safe.. BUT... when he's home.. I love it.. the bonds you form with other military couples and the places you can go ... although I wish he could sleep in with me more and snuggle =)
I miss our civilian life we had but this one isn't bad and has its moments. I do long for the day when he gets out as we have endured a lot of pain and changes from deployments that have been hard. And I guess I just an not blind wife anymore if that makes sense.
