I just wanted to say thank you for the response to my post and I apologize for not saying it earlier. I agree, the commitment of marriage is a huge decision to make and it shouldn’t be taken lightly. We just happen to be slow movers and after four years of friendship we probably still would have been okay with cohabitating.
However, we did decide to take a leap and were married early this January! A decision I’m happy we made. Not only did I hitch up with my best friend but we do get to enjoy the added benefits of the coast guard.
I am happy to hear that the possibility of him being in the barracks or on a cutter for long periods of time has lessened and who can complain about the health benefits. Relocating will be so much easier now and less stressful.
He’s still scheduled to leave for camp February 11th, less then a couple of weeks away. I’m just ready to get this show on the road and start our new adventure. Can I say that waiting to find out where your going to be living next is kinda a bummer!
Thanks again for taking the time to read my post, listening to me ramble and responding!
