My husband has been in the army for only a year now (will be finishing ait in 2 weeks) so i am well aware that i am a newbie to this military wife thing. My father was in the army, but as a child i never heard of all the adult drama. I have so many people telling me not to trust the women my husband works with (which has put a major strain on our marriage) So many stories of cheating wives and cheating husbands, im honestly scared to death about all of this. When i joined this group i thought it would be drama free...mostly talking about deployment, get togethers, idk stuff like that. i was wrong...there are even MORE stories of "he cheated on me, i cheated on him....bla bla bla".
my question is to the wives: why do you sit around and create/discuss so much drama? Has the military life always been this way for you?
my other question, for those women who have also once been a soldier: do i really need to worry about you ladies working with my husband? i was once told that women only join the military to get guys....is this true? AND are there female soldiers that really dont care if a guy is married? i would like to think they would respect that he is and know their boundaries.
like i said, its only been a year for me, and in that year i have become quite the jealous type and also quite a bitch. lol i wasnt always this way and really dont wanna be this way. but it seems to me thats how it is in the military, drama drama drama...
