My husband is joining the Marines in two weeks. I fully support his decision and look forward to contributing to the protection of our country, however, I can't help feeling that my husband is doing this to sneak out of his fatherly responsibilities. Our pregnancy was unplanned and my husband was unsupportive and some what mentally negligent during the first 5 months of the pregnancy. I was hoping he would be more excited about being a father when his son was born, but he hasn't changed much at all. If I never give him the option to help around the house or take care of our son he always chooses to do chores instead. He's awkward and uncomfortable around our son and I'm worried that our son will grow up not knowing his dad. Will being in the military help, or will it be detrimental to his already lacking family attitude?
