I guess I am writing for advice from others who may have gone through something similiar being in a Military family, maybe someone with an unbiased opinion.
My husband has been seriously looking into joining the Army for about a month now. He has spoken to a recruiter, looked up bases, jobs, and taken the practice ASVAB. During this time we did not discuss with our families. I saw both pros and cons but ultimately was supporting my H in something that he really longs to do.
I told my parents and to say the least they are not thrilled. We have a baby and they feel it would not be best for her or I to be away from family, alone when or if H gets deployed, etc. I am now feeling very guilty. Also sidenote, we are trying to sell our home which may be another set back if we can't.
Were your families supportive? Did you back up your H and go anyways? Side note: H has not told his parents for fear of guilt, etc, just until we have made a final decision. Did you regret your H joining?
Thanks for any feedback.
