Are there any circumstances you could imagine, where you couldn't handle it?
I feel a bit weird, becuase I do. my boyfriend proposed and I am seriously reconsidering it, mainly because of his choice of career. He's in the military, which I know is honourable and brave and everything but my dad was too (still is actually) and while I love him, I hated his job.
All the moving around, him being away, fearing he's dead every time the phone rings or a military car comes by... There are so many things.
A lot of things are not as bad for young couple but I don't want to put my kids through the same thing.
My boyfriend does have an engineering degree from a military academy and just finished his med degree, so there are alternatives, once he has served his time, but I asked him once and he said he was happy and didn't want to change areas
So... I don't know . It's tough, Am I alone in placing that much importance on it?
Also he wants to get married soon, because surprise surprise, he's being deployed
Most Helpful Guy
A am a family oriented guy that wants kids, so a career oriented woman, that is to say a woman that places her career above the needs of her family, would be an instant deal breaker. I have no interest in being with woman, that is always gone on business. I don't care if a woman has a job, but any career that either of us may have that causes harm to our family is not acceptable.
There is no way I could consider a woman that has a job that takes my wife away from me that much, or puts the future mother of my children in harms way. I don't know how military wives put up with that.2
