My fiance and I are planning on getting married in Feburary and he has recently gotten out of the U.S. Army and now he wants to join the Marines. Its his childhood dreams to be a Marine and I will do anything to fulfil his dreams. Its just when we went to go talk to the recuiter I actually teared up when we were talking about writing every other day to eachother, it felt to me like he was already in and thats why I started to tear up. I have a 3 year old son and he already calls him daddy, and he loves him to death, Im also worried how to tell my 3 year old daddy will be away for 3 months. I know hundreds of husbands and wives go through this every single day and I know its very hard for them. I just want to know how you cope with him leaving and not being to be with him for 3 months. I honestly think I will go nuts....can anyone help me?
