Well kbusto, speaking just for Me it's all up to You. I got Married 33 yrs ago before leaving for Boot Camp and She's still with Me even after 23 yrs of Military life. My Son also got Married before leaving for Boot Camp and We will see how life works out for them ,so far My DIL likes it. All I can say is Your going to get out of Married life just what You put in to it, same as with the Corps and as with Life in general !!! You both have to want it to work and most important You both have to Communicate with each other. This the same talk I had with My Son and DIL before they got Married. And YES Marriage and Military Life can both work out.!!! P. S. just make sure You have all Your paperwork ready and handy,it makes life easier !
