Anyway, im currently a poolee, and was wonder if any of you guys had tips on how to make being in the Marine Corp. the easiest on ur relationship.

My only advice to you is, while you are on the Island don't give to much thought to girlfriends back home. You will have much more to think about.

I figured while i was on the island i wouldnt have much time to think about her so im not too worried about that. but thank you!

Have you not been told yet that if the gd Marines wanted you to have a gf, they would issue you one?

Forget the gf, hope she mails a dear john letter and be done with it. Sound advice, whether you like it or not boot.

Wow that isn't an easy situation, do you really love her? can you stay without her for a period of time? do you trust her? It's hard to say goodbye to your girlfriend if you really love her, and you think about her every second. But, you will be in Boot Camp, like said before you will have to think about BC, you will have no time to think about your GF. So for you it should be pretty easy, not for her.

I've seen too many situations where my Marines married jodie from back home, who just ended up cheating on him when he got her out of the podunk town they grew up in... just tell you it'll be a long distance thing until you get your feet on the ground... then you can see what's up.

Dont worry about it, Jodi will keep an eye on her for ya !


Its only 3months, man...Dont sweat it.


I left a girlfriend back home when I shipped out, when I got home- I sent her on her way...I saw plenty of recruits all teary eyed over their girls- made me sick.

HOWEVER, our SDI made all recruits that recieved photos of their girls, put said photos up on a tack board, some were HOTT !!

Personally i think its a dumb*** idea to have a girlfriend while going to boot camp. Although i have not gone through boot camp yet, i think it would just complicate your stay at the Recruit Depot. Most women back home are the same, and they will all end up doing the same thing, no matter how much they promise they wont. (Whether you like it or not). Promises become empty because most women just cant help themselves. I dont know, those are just my thoughts. Feel free to correct me if i'm wrong becuase I'm no expert on the matter, becuase i am young and in-experienced. I just think it will screw with your head big time, when you should be concentrating on more important things in the Marine Corps.

You honestly shouldn't have a problem if you built your relationshp on a Emotional basis not a Physical one. Is she really love's you she can wait for you, I know how you feel I hae to go to NSCC BUD/S over the summer(it's not MCRDPI but it is hard) and I will be leaving her but I am not worried because we built our relationship on a emoional basis the most physical we have gotten is kissing. When you grow old and you aren't attracted to her body wil you be attracted to who she is?

So basically.. you have been told the following:

A.) Focus on the Marine Corps. It will take precedence over your girl.
B.) Be prepared for her to be unfaithful. It happens a lot.

Don't worry, you should have no problem once you become a Marine in the girl arena. They just love them Dress Blues. Haha.

My girl friend that i went with back in 1969 when i entered the Marine Corps drops our friendship while im going through boot,said i most likely would not come back from Viet Nam.she was wrong, DI told us that Jodie would take care of her and not to worry.

“Celibacy is the worst form of self-abuse.”

Phantom Blooper, truer words have never been spoken, my Marine friend!

As for your perdicament (spelling?), a wise man once said, if you love something let it go, if it comes back, it loves you too. All women are different, and that's why I'm in such a hurry to get gone. I don't want to be involved with a girl while I'm away at boot... The thought of her being with someone else in wake of my absence would be way too much for me to bear. Someday, I could find a girl who I love enough to marry, but not while I'm serving.. I'll stick to the one-nighters, I like it better that way anyhow.
Use your situation to get you through boot... Motivation!

If you do break up, just think about it as saving yourself from the anger you will eventually have. Cause unless she is ultra dedicated to you, the first time she gets drunk in college, she's going to slip, trip, and fall on some dudes dick. She'll tell you sooner or later, and you'll break up ****ed. Your just saving time.

I think separation can be a great thing. It basically just allows you to test the quality of your relationship and saves you a lot of wasted time. My now husband and I were apart for over a year while we were dating because of school and barely ever saw eachother...that separation showed us how much we really meant to one another and solidified our relationship. And now that we are both joining the Marine Corps it'll be another loooong separation, but we know what our relationship can stand and what it's worth. Cheesy, I'm sure, but true. Ultimately, just look at it for what it is: what's meant to be will be. And if not, whatever, then she just was not the one for you.

You better get her some ****ing diamonds before the "situation" gets any "worse". Give me a break. The Marine Corps is bigger than your girlfriend. **** her "situation". We know Jody will.

thank you for all the help, even the ones that didnt really help and made the situation worse, it was still some funny advice.

Sorry, I see none of this advice as funny, or irrelevent. I have four buddies in Boot Camp at Parris Island, and only one has not gotten the dreadful "Dear Jody" letters. All these answers are straight forward. My brothers wife went from him, to ****ing my older brother ( they were room-mates at Lejeune). She told him the day he was shipping to Afghanistan. I have been around the Marine Corps for 12 years (because of my brothers), and I have seen numerous women cheating on their boyfriends/husbands. Hell, at one time Lejeune's wives had some flag that represented when their husbands/boyfriends were deployed. It's reality man. If she doesn't cheat than great. Just because she doesn't cheat on you during Boot Camp, doesn't mean she won't once you get to the fleet and get deployed. Best advice I have seen from a buddy of mine in the fleet he gave to his now wife. "While I'm at boot, f*** who you want. Just don't f***ing tell me about it."

Petz
01-16-09, 01:02 AM
like they say... when you are on your way home from deployment, give your wife a few days head start to clean the nut stains off the sheets and kick the guys to the curb....


also, those flags you are refering too FP08, are deployment flags that have been around for a long time... they are red bordered white centered with stars dictating how many family members you have deployed. (my mother thinks it has to do with those in service... could I be wrong??? sure, my wife says it all the time.)

so, yeah.... it's worse when it's off base... you don't have other military wives calling PMO on the wh0res fvcking guys in the duplex next door when she knows her husband is deployed....

she doesn't fall under the UCMJ but PMO can kick them off base!!!! take that you cheating b!tch!

01-16-09, 01:04 AM
I just really don't see what advice he was looking for, is there something we could tell you that you really didn't already know? I mean hell, it's real simple:
a.) You stay a couple while you're at boot, trusting her not to Fvck around on you, which if she does you will have 0 clue about.

b.) You break up before you ship, have some time to get over her, and don't have it hanging it over your head while trying to become a Marine. Then after boot, you can have sex with whoever you want, free of guilt, and you don't have to be with the same person all the time.

To me, it's a no-brainer... But I'm not the one with the decision to make.:beer:

SSgt, those are the flags I am refering too. I could not think of what they were called off the top of my head. I'll agree with what you first said about giving your wife a few days heads up hah.

To the OP, chit happens bro. I am in the same situation, but also keeping in mind I maybe one of those that gets the "dear john" letter. I know it is a possibility, and right now it doesn't effect me. Though, it maybe different once I get to Parris Island, and it actually happens.

Whatever any of you poolees do......NEVER get married before you ship off to bootcamp thinking it will make everything alright. I don't care how much you love her and how strong you think your relationship is.

Most of those that do get married before shipping out usually end up in a divorce within a year. It's like telling the young Marines in your platoon it's not a good idea to marry prior to deployment. Some of them still do it and most file for divorce shortly after getting back. As someone else has already mentioned about you bringing Suzie out of hometown USA and around a bunch of other hard-d!cks, when you return from deployment she will be just like you left her....... freshly screwed.

It depends on how strong your relationship is with her.I went to boot camp and after boot camp got married was stationed away from her and then went overseas for a year and then in 1975 got out and then in 1988 got divorced so in all that it wasn't because of anything that happened while I in the Corps.So it is what you make of it at anytime and place. Not everyone is going to have a cheating spouse or girlfriend. Make your on choice and don't always depend on the stories you hear.:thumbup:

Probably the best yet-this is exactly true. If she was just your steady fvck then odds are she will be keep that up after you are gone. If it's for real then quit worrying about. Just don't marry her yet and see where it goes. Sounds like you've already got some trust issues. Kind of a red flag.

Had a jaded old plt sgt who LOVED to see young Marines shattered by cheating wives. Guess he came home and caught his ex with company (x2) one time... Don't let that be you...

Don't forget that you are as likely to cheat as she is. Marines want to get out there and paint the town and I think they can be even less faithful than their wives. Had a financial management class the other day and the lady claims pendleton's divorce rate is 85% and climbing. don't know where she got those numbers from...:scared:

HOWEVER, our SDI made all recruits that recieved photos of their girls, put said photos up on a tack board, some were HOTT !!Wanna get the envy of the other recruits get her to send you some sexy poses. And when I was at Boot it was called the Hog Board. One recruit got sexy swimsuit pictures sent to him by his sister, when he wrote her and told her about the Board. We had a freindly competition amoung the Recruits on who could post the sexiest pictures, short of Pornogrophy on the Hog Board.

I married my school sweetheart right after my MOS training while on leave on my way to Okinawa for 13 months. While over there I was sending most of my money home to her so that we would have a nest egg for when I returned. She was living rent free with her parents. Well I got back and found out we had diddly. She spent the 13 months partying with her GFs and, stories have it with, (never quite proved) a couple of guys. Took her to Camp LeJeune with me, and had more suspicions while I was on base she was not at home. Got out, went back home, she had an affair with her boss. I divorced her and figured I wasted, looking back over our marriage, about 7 years of my life. I was a paycheck for her nothing else. Stay single if you have any iota of a doubt about her faithfulness to you. I wish I had a forum like this before I enlisted. Would have saved myself tons of heartache, and misery.

Why you gonna get mad at him? She's the one opening her legs!Yeah she might be guilty, but he knew she was taken, and that, to me, is disrespecting me. When I caught my first, and second wives screwing around, I beat both their lovers senseless. Then it dawned on me that neither of them, or their lovers, were worth going to jail over. And the second one ended up marrying the sh-tbird (my ex-best friend). She later wrote and apologized and said he was a drunken slob who wouldn't work. Hinted we should get back together. Yeah right. If your lady/woman/wife/girlfriend however you choose to describe her as is unfaithful, hitting them in the purse ($$$$$) is always more painful than anything else. And I'll reiterate, If you have any suspicion what so ever do not marry her.

Hell, they probably dont even allow that in boot anymore. A lot has changed in the 7 years since I was there, apparently.

We had a few pretty wild photos up on that board. I noticed that in the morning, some were in a differnt position then they were last night, on the board..Haha..

If my sister sent me sexy bikini photos, the first thing I would have done when I got home would be punch her right in the throat.

I really think, considering the average age of a male recruit in boot is 19.7yo- 98% of relationships these recruits are in will be over shortly, Corps or not.

So, while you go and better yourself, let Suzie get VD...Once you graduate and get your DS, you'll probably pull more ass then you ever realized.

I "liked" my girl, too....But when I found out she cheated on me, I didnt even care. I was on a journey that the scumbag she screwed wouldnt be able to handle.

I just laughed, and made sure to "think" about this hot female Corpsmen, more often.

When I got home, I put said scumbags head into a metal railing outside a diner and told her to to take a hike.(I have alot of pride, and rarely admit that I was cheated on, but whatever...this board is full of men that I respect).

Im engaged and I leave for PI in July and im not worried about anything. If you love her and want to be with her and she feels the same way it will work out, like Kawigunny said not all women will do you wrong. So just do what you think, if you have no doubts about her faithfullness then you'll be fine.

Are you a man or a mouse? Neither: you are a United States Marine!

Don't misinterpret what I say in jest! My wife is a loving reality check but has never done anything but support and encourage me. Hell she is probably too nice and definitely more than I deserve. You can PM me if you want to talk about the specifics but no person (man, woman, or MARINE) should ever take that sh!t from one they "love". You owe yourself, Marine. :usmc:

Sorry, I see none of this advice as funny, or irrelevent. I have four buddies in Boot Camp at Parris Island, and only one has not gotten the dreadful "Dear Jody" letters. All these answers are straight forward. My brothers wife went from him, to ****ing my older brother ( they were room-mates at Lejeune). She told him the day he was shipping to Afghanistan. I have been around the Marine Corps for 12 years (because of my brothers), and I have seen numerous women cheating on their boyfriends/husbands. Hell, at one time Lejeune's wives had some flag that represented when their husbands/boyfriends were deployed. It's reality man. If she doesn't cheat than great. Just because she doesn't cheat on you during Boot Camp, doesn't mean she won't once you get to the fleet and get deployed. Best advice I have seen from a buddy of mine in the fleet he gave to his now wife. "While I'm at boot, f*** who you want. Just don't f***ing tell me about it."

I actually find most of the advice irrelevant because most of these posts are not actually advice at all, just facts and people telling me what is most likely going to happen, and i was just asking for advice to make it easier. But i do like the advice your buddy gave lol, its so true.

paidinblood, I agree with pretty much everything you've posted so far... Not all girls are gonna run around on their men while they're away, some girls just aren't like that. However, if this guy had to make a thread about it, it would seem like a red flag to me as well!

Now if I was a girl leaving a guy behind when I went to boot... Well that's a different story entirely...


No, i dont think you quite understand the thread, i was just asking advice to make it the EASIEST on us both. Not that im scared shes gonna cheat on me or break up with me, because if she did i would get over it and move on. Its not the end of the world. I am very young.

hahaha, advice is something that helps you, not facts.. I already know that there is a high chance that she will cheat on me or break up with me, i was just wonder how to make all of it easier. Thats all.

Honestly im not sure if this is the section this should be in, but im sorry. Anyway, im currently a poolee, and was wonder if any of you guys had tips on how to make being in the Marine Corp. the easiest on ur relationship. I will be leaving a girlfriend back at home and was just wondering on some tips. Thank you.


Man I am not about to say this again. Don't tell me what I do and don't understand. Think of how many years of experience are on this board. How many 50th anniversaries and 5th wives. Then tell me that we have NO idea what's up.

Look, if you asked me for a bandaid, and I pointed out that you in fact had SUCKING F*ing CHEST WOUND, would you argue with me about the original question?

You only asked about how to make it easier, true, and all these Marines (and some others, but oh well) shared their experiences. Now simmer down and go get us another round :beer: -you need to catch up!

If your already doubting your girlfriend then you don't really trust her. Which means that you don't have a relationship that will last. Honestly, and this is coming from my three cousins who are Marines...your better off going to Boot single. No worries that way. Unless you are absolutely in love with this girl and are planning to spend the rest of your life with her....just my two cents.

Ew Beer....gross. lol

Well you see the trick is to get someone on the tap who likes you. If the tapper has it in for you, you won't stand a chance.. And don't let your DIs anywhere near that keg or it will be foam city on the quarterdeck..

Well, I'm going to MCT after boot camp. It is my understanding that SOI is a much longer and more in-depth version of MCT and only for 03XX Marines. So I'll only be at MCT for a short while until I go to Pensacola.

Unless, of course, you meant both MCT and SOI has this ritual, which I've never heard of before, but I take your word for it.

ok I got you now. Ok School of Infantry (SOI) is the actual command which encompasses all kinds of "infantry" training. SOI (W) for example has:

ITB Bn (for grunts)
MCT Bn (others)

The Recon school just moved there too, as well as LAV school, and advanced (AIT) which is a bunch of schools. So in short, yes you are going to SOI, where you will be assigned to MCT. Cheers!

ps-I think MCT only gets light beer, but I don't know. AIT drinks Guiness extra stout from Das Boot... :beer:

I'm guessing the guy who started this thread was looking for some pity... These Marines are giving you some good "advice", wether it's what you want to hear or not is a different matter. If you do break up with her, then just consider yourself lucky that you won't ever have to worry about walking in on your "best friend" since little league jack hammering someone you care about... It sucks. And even after you've beaten that guy to a pulp, there's nothing you can do to truly make the pain go away... Just tossing my two cents into the hat based on previous experiences...

Best has been given...which is experiences of others...

Take these opinions and digest them....and hope all works for You
