Our relationship grew and flourished despite the fact that he was preparing to deploy a mere six months after I moved down South. We talked about death and dying, and what he would want to happen if he didn’t come home. When I went to the pre-deployment briefing, I got a “special” folder and jumped through hoops to make sure I was on a notification list in case something happened during the deployment. I was his confidant, best friend, and go-to person.Because when you survive the darkest days together, you realize that you are more than a girlfriend. That time served great purpose to build and nurture the foundation of your future marriage.You are the most important girl in the whole world to a man serving his country. That time strengthened and solidified your relationship into what it is today.Shortly after my husband returned from that deployment we were engaged and married less than 6 months later.
Plus, you will automatically have less in common with civilians because you have different lifestyles by being in the Navy.
You will have to face problems that are not the type of thing you are used to facing, like in my case finding a dead mouse stuck in my washing machine. How long those hours are and how often they are will depend on your partner’s job and location.
Some jobs won't even require 8 hours where others will keep him there 12-16 hours on a regular basis.
It’s difficult being the partner of someone joining the military or dating someone who is already in it because they are your only source of what you are getting yourself into and every Navy GF quickly realizes the information you are getting is second-hand.
What if your partner is only aware of what it will be like for the Sailor and not for you?
