What da hell ! I just had my daughter and my husband wasn't granted any leave whatsoever. Here's to recovering and taking care of a 13 month old and a newborn alone. *cheers* 😂🍻
*I know things could be WAY worse. To all the mamas who have to take care of babies alone due to deployment, I couldn't even imagine!
So my boyfriend is 25 and is thinking of joining the military to secure a better life for our family. We have two kids 6 years and 8 months (oldest is mine from a previous relationship) and we are struggling to put food on the table. He feels that joining the military will secure a roof over our heads and make us more financially stable for our boys.
I know we would have to be married first. Which kinda stinks because I never wanted a courthouse wedding but we can't afford anything right now.
But will this honestly be better for our family? Will it be as financially stable as he thinks?
I have so many questions my head is spinning.
I honestly think we would love military life. I think it'd be great for our boys and I know bf wants to support our country. I just want to be able to put food on the table and know my boys will have a place to live tomorrow.
Thank you in advance for anyone willing to read all of this and answer my crazy :-)
