It's definitely a huge decision!
My boyfriend contracts overseas, and is gone 6 months a year. If he ever had the opportunity to try out for something like CAG, I know he'd want to do it in a heartbeat and that would be very tough from my end, because although of course I want him to realize his dreams, a part of me would be feeling like he's choosing/valuing a career over me.
I'd probably do everything in my power to start making her feel super special and valuable to you... and then talk about how reenlisting would be beneficial for both of your futures so she can see that you aren't doing it just for you, but so you both reach your life goals. And definitely ask her thoughts so it doesn't seem like you are the only one making the decision.
Also consider your reasons for reenlisting and see if you can't supplement those reasons with a different job that wouldn't require you to be gone or possibly in a combat situation.0
