We met in Indiana when he and my ex were in town for a visit. He didn't really talk to me then so I usually say we officially met in Virginia when I moved in with said ex and he was our roommate.

7. Has your spouse ever been deployed?
Yes, he has been deployed a total of 2 times since I have known him and 1 or 2 other times before that.
8. Ever been to his promotion ceremony?
Unfortunately he was promoted while they were deployed last year so I couldn't be there :(
9. How long have you been a military wife?
About a year and a half.
10. Did you marry him before or after he joined?
11. How did your husband propose?
We went for a walk on the beach and this happened!: (he was pretending we were taking a picture)
12. Where did you get married?
Our first wedding was done in the mayor of Michigan Citys office. The second was at my life long church in Michigan City.

He is currently stationed at Naval Station Norfolk but is going to Damneck in a few months for shore duty.

2 weeks :( Then he deployed for 6 months.

Well we have ever only been here.
19. Do you think your spouse looks good in his uniform?
20. Do you think military life is more advanced then civilian life?
Not more advanced, just quite different.
21. Do you like the benefits you receive as a military spouse?
22. Do you have a lot of military wife friends?
I definately do!
23. What is the hardest part of the military life?
The seperation, first and foremost. I'd say the second hardest thing is not being able to make any plans because they can get ripped from you at any given moment.
24. Do you own military wife stuff?
Lol definately. I have a purse and wallet made from his uniform he couldn't use anymore, I have a few shirts, necklaces, key chains, and ribbons for my car.
25. Do you support your spouse as a member of the military?
Yes and no. I mean, of course I support him and would continue to support him if he decided to stay in but he is trying to get out after shore duty and I honestly pray that happens because him being around for our future child/ren means everything to me. Plus, I don't want to go through any more deployments.
