I really want to join the military but I would really like to have a family someday too and my biggest fear is getting left or cheated on during deployment I just can't see any woman (or man) going a year or more without seeing her/his spouse and not finding someone else or cheating and I know military divorces are really high probably for that reason, the military is really my only option since the economy is all jacked up so should I just go the military route and forget a family and "marry my work" or should I try to take my chances in the civilian world

Military divorces are high? I've been around the military for my entire life, and have only witnessed two divorces (one because the husband was an arrogant, ill-mannered, player of a Marine.)
And among various assignments, my father was deployed for an entire year-- I assure you that my mother remained loyal.
As long as the woman you marry truly is the love of your life; as long as you are also the love of her life, I wouldn't worry. My extended family, friends, and acquaintances are predominantly in the military, and are all going strong.
I also plan on joining, but I'm not sure how that will function in the relationship department (because I'm female.)
If your ambitions are in the service, don't "take your chances" in the civilian world. Ladies love a man in uniform, believe me.0
