Tell us about him..



where did you meet??



what branch is he in??



what does he do that drives you up the wall, across the ceiling and down the other side??



lets go..



I met my husband online and was sure i would make the news as a warning for internet predators, and when he said navy all i kept hearing in my head was "sailors have a different girl in every port"..my mom said that all the time, and since we dont really have military in Philly, how she knows is beyond me..lol. I tried to run but apparently i was the girl in the horror movies with the heels that always falls, cause he caught me and here we are 5 years later and going strong. He doesnt really do anything that drives me crazy, maybe i cant think right now because he is at work..let me look around the bedroom..im sure ill find something...



Your turn...

When I was fifteen I lived down the road from this punk looking sixteen year old boy. Our moms tried to set us up, but the one time we actually "met" he said "hey" then went to his room to jam on his guitar. The only times we saw him after that was if we were passing in the car on the way to the bus stop. If it was rainy or cold we'd let him ride with us bc he was always walking. I never knew anything about him other than he was cute and smeled good, but so not my type. A year later I got my first job at a resturaunt, and there was that punk kid. Only now he looked more clean cut, and hot as could be. He apparently had just joined ROTC and had to cute his shaggy do. As we worked together we became friends; I'd usually be his ride home and some nights we'd talk until 2:00 am. Now, five years later we have an almost two year old, and have been married two and a half years or so. He joined the Navy about a year after we were married. He does many things that annoy me, but I think that's just because he's been away for so long that we're both learning how to live together again.

Hiliary, I agree with the quote completely. I think you may be just a little unreasonable. You say you feel like he doesn't appreciate what a fantastic family he has. I think he does he just doesn't know how to juggle everything and health issues when your in the military can lead extremely stress because you could lose your job and with the limited job market it has to be a lot on him . I don't know about his childhood was his father hands on? A lot of men don't know how to be hands on. IF that's the case show him how make a schedule that you both agree on. Ours is he plays the game while i cook we eat together. He spend 1 hour with our daughter doing what ever reading, playing. everyday then after that he is free do as he no grips. Saturday is family day after five he is free play the game. And we try to spend 3 hours a week together just me and him. This works for us he gets his release Mina gets her daddy and I get my husband. Maybe if you try to set something up like that it would make you both happy. Marriage is a compromise we have to take the good and the bad and work hard as a team to make it work. I complete understand the stress of moving I am an army brat turned army wife. Making friends is hard. Like my mom to me when I married my husband the hardest job in the world is not being a mom but being a military wife. We deal with being alone, always move, are husbands endure and see things we could only image and we support them completely. Now for work USE Your spousal preference and get a government job. I work for NAF and I love it. They have part time jobs with no weekends so that you can be social and still be able to get your kids on the weekend.

Hiliary, I had the same problem with my husband not the pc xbox if I let him he will play all day even had the baby playing she knows more about video games the some teenagers at 3. At when reached my breaking point it finally came out he wasn't happy and playing the game keep him in the house away from temptation and made him able to be ok with being unhappy in our life. It took a lot of work and patience. Nagging and threats only throw him deeper into the game. I suggest you find out why plays be carefully not to come off to come off to strong. What game does he play? My husband says there are a lot of factors to consider to why plays so much like recent deployment, stress at work, type of interaction with the game. Talk really talk is all I have to suggest try not to be to emotional. Hope this helps and I didn't offend you.

I met my husband my first weekend at college. We hung out with the same group for a while before admitting that we were in love with each other. Just before 9/11, he told me that college wasn't for him and he wanted to join the Marines. I was scared he'd forget about me and I'd never know for sure, but I became a "boot camp" girlfriend. He proposed over the phone a few months after boot camp was over. We just celebrated 7 years of marriage. What drives me crazy is when he forgets to communicate. I don't mean that he doesn't call when overseas. I mean he forgets to communicate that he has out of town training until the day before (if not the day of). I love him dearly even when he gets "scatterbrained."

Ok well my hubby and i were highschool sweethearts but ended up in different states and married different ppl..fast forward about 5 yrs, id been divorced for 2 yrs and he was recently divorced. We ran into each other one friday night while out with friends. He was coming in and i was leaving but we stopped and talked for awhile and we swapped contact info.the next night he calls me and asks me out on a date. Dated for about 6 months before we got engaged, got pregnant soon after and married 4 months after our baby girl was born.

He is currently ending his enlistment with the National Guard and willb e reenlisting with the Air Force by the end of this month then well be on to the next chapter

What doesnt he do that drives me crazy! Lol. Were polar opposites so we irritate each other and bump heads quite a bit but thats the fun in it too. We differ so much butwe also complete each other. Im the crazy artsy outgoing blunt girl who loves to travel and hes the serious geeky video playing home body

Wow! This thread has been going on for 6yrs that's insane!🙄
I had been a single mom for 5 years when my neighbor signed me up on Yahoo's personals. I would just delete them for fear that they were going to be an axe murderer. Then there was this attractive soldier who wrote this long letter to me. I took days to do it but wrote back. We continued writing, chatting and talking on the phone for a long time and eventually met...finding out we went to the same high school and colleges next to each other. My 5 year old adored him! We dated for a year, he proposed with a duct tape ring. I wore it everywhere instead of the real ring 😂 We have been married 11 years now. The thing he does that drives me crazy? Omgosh! There's so much lol He waits until the last minute to tell me when he's going tdy or when there's an event like a military ball.

I met my boyfriend in high school but we weren't interested in each other at all. Just a hi and bye in the hallways! We ended up meeting again after he left that school at Kohl's where we both worked and that is where it all started. Flirting while I was folding women's clothing, or hiding in the shoe stock room! We had a child together and then he decided to join the Navy! I guess my story is a little different that most since we aren't married yet and have a child together?

The thing that he does that drives me CRAZY is that he doesn't open up to me, and he isn't as sensitive as I am. That's about it! :)

I met my fiancé on Tinder. I always thought it was stupid. So we talked a few times o there but I needed up getting rid of the app. Then, this October I figured out my best friend Jeremy was very good friends with Dalton (fiance). Jeremy talked him up to me and gave me his number and snapchat. I tried talking to him but he wasn't into it. And then all of a sudden one day out convo got deeeoer and here we are. We never met in person until 3 months later. The only thing he does that drive me up a wall is keep my from getting ready by hugging on me all the time.

I actually met my husband while we were both serving in Afghanistan. I was already with someone and he (Jake) started dating my best friend. We all would go on double dates and were really close. I ended up getting pregnant and me and my ex broke up and my now husband was about to get stationed somewhere else so him and my friend broke up (which they were never really serious anyways, just more or less friends). Anywho, me and Jake started talking, did the whole long distance thing for about a year, then I flew to Hawaii to marry him. We moved there about a half of yr later and here we are going on 3.5 years.

My hubby is amazing! I had a really bad past relationship which made me very numb and Jake was able to pull me back and be my knight in shining armor. I know, corny.. lol He always puts me and my son about himself and is so patient with me. We never argue, like at all.. I guess that's a good and bad thing. And he loves spending every waking moment with me, which feelings are mutual.

I cant stand that he's such a homebody tho. Hes really shy so im trying to still break him out of his shell. lol In due time, it will happen. But I am madly in love with him :)

My husband is....endearing. We met in college French, one of those first-day-of-the-semester situations where you're 19 and walking into a classroom and scoping everybody out, and you catch sight of someone you're instantly attracted to but you act like you're. I had no idea then, or for the next couple of years, that he would end up being the guy I built a life with. He is optimistic, and flighty, and has this amazing ability to just be in whatever moment he's in. It's probably really helpful in the Army, he can truly compartmentalize anything. I wish I was like that and I admire that about him, even if it does also sometimes drive me crazy. Occasionally it can seem like he doesn't care about things as much as I do because he doesn't talk about them or seem affected by them.

But he just shows emotion differently. By helping me out with something, making a sacrifice for all of us, going without something he wants so I can have something I want-and never making it seem like he's giving up anything, never making me feel bad. We'll be together 7 years this winter. Like most infantry guys, his inability to act like a mature, responsible adult can drive me nuts. Like I found 30.00 worth of something called "BarphFume" which I assume is puke-scented perfume charged to our Amazon account during this deployment. He loves pranks. But it's also endearing because his pranks never work out the way he wants. Like when he put saran wrap over the entire top of the toilet seat, instead of between the seat and the bowl. It was a prank for my sister and it was so obvious she actually just thought the toilet was broken instead of not seeing the saran wrap and peeing everywhere. :) I love him. He's coming home in 21 days, he left back in January and this deployment in particular has seemed to take forever, and to bring us apart. I can't wait for his goofy antics to be back under this roof.

we met in 2009 at Fort Lewis, while we were serving active duty in the Army together. we were friends first, dated for a while, and got married in 2011. we have one child together, and he has two from a previous marriage. He is currently far away in Korea. He leaves his dirty laundry in multiple places, smokes, and marathon watches shows. I hate the last one because i like to rotate between shows, they last so much longer that way and you don't have to wait so long for the next season!

We met in 2008 during our college years. We stayed in the same apartment complex off campus for about a year before we ran into each other. It was so weird bc as I was gazing out the living room window of my 2nd floor apartment he was slow driving over a speed bump and he happen to look up. When he did we instantly caught eyes and honestly it was love at first sight. He didn't stop and park nor did he get out his car but we kept bumping into each other like every day until he approached me. And when he did it felt like it was just the two of us in our on world and everything that was around us wasn't there! Lol ever since then..... Well I'm still here. Lol we've been through a lot that feel like has prepared us for our relationship now. We've been off and on until about 2010 when he decided to go to the army and I've been faithfully by his side! All together we have four girls! And he drives me bananas! But I love him! He super sweet and he has great intentions but if I could make him see that his ideas..... I told him that 3months ago, and now he finally has the euphony! But I love him dearly and admire him in many ways.

We met in 2003 on myspace, spent a day together and shortly after that he kissed me and I knew right away that I was going to spend the rest of my life with this man. 3 months into our relationship he got accepted into Infantry in the Royal Canadian Regiment went away for basic, and was posted to Petawawa, our relationship basically ended there but we kept in touch as much as we could. 8 years later he showed up on my doorstep for my 19th birthday and after our day together asked if I would move in with him. I said yes instantly. 4 Years later, we now have 2 kids, he's now in CJIRU and next year are getting married FINALLY! There isn't much about him that I can say makes me crazy, but Im sure one day something might pop up :)

We met in 1996 in high school. I was a freshman, he a senior. He joined The Corps and we kept in touch over the years. When he got out in 2004, we decided to give it a shot. Here we are 10 years, 2 kids, another branch later (AF), still driving each other up said wall!

I met my sailor a million years ago at a Navy base that no longer exists! (Was Orlando, Florida really the best place to make fresh-outta-high-schoolers go to school?) We met two days after I arrive, became friends within weeks, and have basically been together ever since!

We were stationed together. We were friends for two years before we dated. He rarely drives me crazy, he's never home for that, lol. We've been together for 13 years, married for 9 of them. We have two kids, 11 & 8. He's the best thing to ever happen to me.

I met him at work, waitressing. He was a friend of a friend bar tending. He was persistent and ridiculously kind.... And he drove a motorcycle so of course I was intrigued. He is in the national guard and has been for 6 years, serving in afghanistan and recently Africa. He left for Africa when our son was 6 months old, came back to a toddler :) he drives me crazy bc he enjoys his video games, too often (only when our son is in bed of course), but other than that there's nothing that really makes me bonkers. He's great all around accells at his career, providing for us while always making us laugh :)

My husband and I met while we were both working in a Cracker Barrel, super romantic right? I liked him, but he thought I was weird. So I only convinced him to go on a couple of dates with me, one to a movie where he fell asleep. I finally gave up on him.
A couple months later he started trying to ask me out. I kept telling him no! But I eventually caved and we started hanging out regularly. One night we watched a movie together, I believe it was Scary Movie 2 (once again, super romantic,) I asked him if I could kiss him. As soon as our lips touched I knew that I was going to marry him.
A few months before this he swore into the Air National Guard. We finally started "officially" dating, but after a few months he got his orders for basic training and tech school. He left the first week in November, and I visited him when he graduated basic in the first week of January where we got engaged, and then again when he was in tech school in the middle of February.
The first week in April while I was talking to him in the middle of the night I started having muscle spasms in my abdomen. I told him about it and he encouraged me to go to the doctor. I went to the doctor that my sister worked for, who happened to be her father-in-law, and then SURPRISE! She told me I was pregnant. Not only that but SURPRISE! I was almost 24 weeks along, and my due date was four days before our wedding date. AHHH!
So I did the first 7 months of my pregnancy alone. We had to move our wedding date up. 3 weeks before my due date they asked my husband to deploy for a month. I told them absolutely not, thankfully they let him stay home! SURPRISE, IT'S A GIRL! She came late, on the date we had originally planned for our wedding.
He drives me nuts sometimes, but I'm crazy about him! Now we're just preparing for his deployment coming up in a couple of months!

I met my husband when we were both working at a movie theater, we were best friends before anything happened. Once we started down that road there was no stopping us! He asked me to marry him 10 days after I graduated high school! We found out we were expecting 3 months later! (Ooops lol)
He is now in Air Force tech school for 6 more weeks at Sheppard AFB, TX.
Things that annoy me about him are that I can hardly hear him sometimes because he is so soft spoken and he's bad about leaving his socks on the floor!

We were stationed together on a patrol boat in Hawaii, we married 8 months after meeting and have been married for almost 12 years now.

He is in the U.S. Coast Guard.

We've been living in different states for 3 years because of his deployment schedule and the fact that we have four daughters (his city is not kid friendly). He is used to me taking care of EVERYTHING, so that's become the norm. I would like for him to take some more initiative sometimes and take some of the responsibility off of my plate.

I met my husband when we were in high school. I was 16 and a Junior. He was 18 and a senior. When he was little he used to be friends with my current best friend, and when I first saw him, I was like 'Kelen, who is that? I think I'm in love." Of course we were just joking, but he was sooo beautiful.
My husband is in BCT for the Army.
He does a lot that drives me up the wall, but I wouldn't change any of it. He is bad about telling me he will take out the trash, and then not doing it. Or he lets our baby play with the game controllers. He never cooks my meat medium rare. He is stubborn as a mule. And boy, do I love him sooo much.

I met my husband in 2006 at a bar. I am soooo totally against taking anyone seriously that I met in bars or clubs, lol. But when I layer eyes on him I was instantly drawn to him. He was so friggin handsome to me, the way he carried himself drove me crazy! And to think, I was not in the mod to go out that night and I only went bc my BFF begged me to. So that entire night I was trying to get up the courage to approach him and I kept backing out. I was so nervous so I kept on drinking a little more liquid courage and then next I knew they turn the lights on in the bar bc they were about to close. I was like, oh well, maybe next time. I also got 2 other guys numbers that night but didn't really care too much bc I just erased them. So as we were about to walk out his friend stops me and I was like, "aw man, I do not want to take one for the team..." We'll his friend then goes on to tell me that his friend wanted to talk to me and that I should go and talk to him, he's in the military, he's single, he's a good guy, etc... So when he points to him, low and behold its the guy I was eyeballing the entire night! I was sooooooo stoked! So he came over and we introduced ourselves and we have been inseparable ever since! He was actually on leave the time I met him and he was between bases. About 1 month in we decided to get married so when he was able to take leave again we went to the JOP and got married. So here we are 6 years later and we have a 2 year old son and I wouldn't change a thing! He is my rock, my best friend and the best husband and an awesome dad! He drives me crazy everyday, but that's why I love him! Bc if I didn't love him he wouldn't phase me!

I met my hubz at a Pizzeria. I had been working there with my ex-boyfriend, and when he got fired for being stupid, I dumped him and we split up but I kept working there. A few months later my dark prince shows up clad in a black garbage bag. Lol. He wore it over his clothes to keep him dry while washing the dishes. Which was my job! I was seventeen and he was twenty-two. (If the age difference is odd to you, I assure you, I felt older and still do. A hard life will do that to you.) I thought he was really weird at first so we didn't talk much. Then he started poking and prodding me to talk to him, and I couldn't help but be sucked into his annoying charm.

We dated for about a year, then circumstances led us to quitting that job, and going to work together at a different job, as well as move in together. A few months later he proposed. We both agree that we knew we were the right ones for each other when we both realized that we weren't "falling in love" at first sight. We just liked each other at first, thought the other was really cool and wanted to spend more time getting to know one another. Then a light bulb flicks on and you realize this is the person you want to spend eternity with. Even though he plays WAY too much Mindcraft...LOL.

A few months after our first anniversary, we had our first lovely little girl. He joined the Navy to better support us and the rest is present. I love my guy with all my heart. He's helped me become a better person in so many ways, and truly loved me for me. He saw my dark side and kissed it until it melted into light. I love him AND his family. They are all a treasure to my heart and soul. After growing up in a broken home and so many other life issues, meeting him and his family, was like lifting a drowning woman out of the sea. His family is so loving, so close together, and they've brought me to tears of joy many times. I am eternally grateful for getting to meet my guy and for becoming a part of his wonderful family. :]

But yes, he does drive me up the wall often...Lol. But that's typical in any relationship and I'm not a petty person to point out all of his shortcomings. Because I know I'm much worse. Haha!

I met my husband in high school. We met junior year when he was transfered over to my school and got together the summer before senioryear. He was talkig to my frienand she ttalked me into texting him one day because we were both lookig for a relatinship. Of course we had the ypcalhigh school relationship,he was the basketball star i was the shy girl ho hated school. Somehow it clicked though. He is enlisted in the army active duty. And will be leaving to ft.benning.The one thing that drives me crazzzzyyy is he can come off as such a flirt, he doesnt always do it intentionall but where im from if someone gives you a comploiment they automatically want to have sex with uor be with you.Unfortunitely thi caused alot of problems. We have moved pass tht and started changing the tings that irritate us so were so good now its amazing!

Hi I met my husband on the subway in washington dc in 2004. He wasnt military yet. We dated and he told me that I was his destiny, and that there was something different about me. Awwww... Lol... So we dated for a year, he proposed in 2005 than a few months later I found out we where expecting our first baby... He decided to join the military. Which made me love him more even though he drives me crazy. We got married December 2006 and moved to Norfolk va where we have been stationed ever since and we have 2 more kids.
He drives me mad, he leaves his dirty cloths on the floor and leaves him beer bottles everywhere. I swear he thinks I'm his house cleaner. He is 30 but acts like a kid, all he want to do is play video games. Not saying that I don't sometime play with him. Lol
Even though I might complain about him he truly is my best friend. We get along so well and I couldnt imagine a better partner for me.

My hubby found me through his parents. In Indian culture 1stly mom n dad approves a relationship. I was in early time of my college just 18.Both of our family meets before. he was on duty so he was unable to came to see me. that makes me angry. I thought that I was going to marry that person who has no interest in me. When parents decided the marriage date he wanted to talk wid me. now my turn I refused strictly to talk wid him. Without a proper interaction we got married in 27 jan 2004.After 6 days of marriage he back to his duties so terrible but each moment he was free from his task he gave me a call we talked just for 2 minutes n count how many times I LOVE U s were said by each of us. happily ever we have 2 angels of 7 and 5. still he is on duty in ARMY. Will be home by may.Anxiously waiting........

OMG Nyke your story is almost identical to mine. From our first conversation he told me I was "the girl of his dreams and he was in love with everything about me". I was totally freaked out. After that all my friends thought he was literally crazy. That may be why they're giving me such a hard time.

[deleted account]

I was thinking that same thing! I've been married almost 10 yrs after only 2 months, but I just thought I was the only insane one around... this let's me know Im normal.. haha. Either that, or we're all crazy... crazy in love :)

[deleted account]

I met my hubby at a mutual friend's house. He was a Marine at the time, stationed in the good ole' stumps (29 palms, ca). He told me I was the "girl of his dreams literally", and looked at me like he loved me from the very beginning, which let me tell you.. freak me out completely! But we dated, then were engaged, and married all 60 days to the day we took our first long walk and got to know one another (a week after we met) lol. So here we are 9.5 years later, he is literally my best friend! Life isn't perfect, but we are truly blessed with love! Lets see something that drives me nuts... oh he has insomnia, so sometimes he'll come to bed and without thinking, he'll wake me for the remote. The problem is once I'm awake I can't fall back asleep, and then I look over and he's asleep lmbo... gotta love my guy!!

Its so encouraging to hear stories of other couples who've taken the plunge to get married after only a few months of dating and have made their relationships last. I love my soldier but my friends have been giving me the hardest time about marrying him after only dating two months. They all seem to think its absolutely absurd to get married if you haven't been dating at least a year already. I personally do not believe that it take that long to know if he's the one I want to be with for the rest of my life but its gets to me not having the support of those I love the most.

I met my current boyfriend back when I was 16 through a mutual friend. He was turning 21 so it was strictly a meet and greet type thing. Fast forward to five years I received a message on Facebook from this guy that I haven't seen since I was 16 with an Army uniform on. We exchanged numbers and got to know each other. We're been together 2 months and have only spend two of those days together. Now we're rushing to get married so we (me and my 1 year old son) can accompany him to Germany for his first PCS. Crazy right? We have never stuck to the normal way of doing things. What he does that drives me up the wall? He's very much to himself. He would rather be alone while I want to be surrounded by people.

My husband and I met when I was 15, and he was 19. His younger brother was a good friend of mine, and when we started hanging out he introduced me to his brothers and sisters as they showed up around his house. He hung around his brother(my husband) alot so we got to know eachother. (Trust me, I didn't act or look 15 lol) He actually ASKED my parents if he could date me which was really sweet. And they said yes, and we have been together ever since. Got engaged in December of 2009, had a pretty long engagement, We got pregnant right when he had to leave for boot, he got back and we got married :). He drives me crazy when he over thinks things, and gets grumpy when he has to think really hard lol. So i took over most of the bills and stuff so he could just bring in the bacon and I take care of everything else. I'm used to the added stress, He doesn't need to be stressed out while taking care of America :)

I met my husband at a club. YES a club. I always heard your cant find a good man at the club, good thing I wasn't looking it's like he fell out of the sky. He's a Marine. When I first met him, he told me he was a Marine and was so cocky with it. It didn't impress me like it did the other women in the club. I'm a Marine brat i've been around them my whole life, so he was pretty amazed at how Ididn't melt at his occupation. I knew that his cocky nature was just an act, and once I got through that wall, there was an amazing man who had so much laughter and love. 3 years later here we are! I fell so deep in love with the person he is, funny, outgoing, he has no enemies and everyone loves to be around him. I can't think of what he does to drive me nuts right at this moment, but i'm sure once my brain starts to think of anything, i'll have a list for you lol..hey, I love him to death but driving each other crazy comes with the territory!

I met my husband while we both were working at Hardees. He knew my dad because my dad was a school teacher at the school he attended. The funny thing was my dad wanted me to date his best friend. I knew he had a girlfriend so I didn't try to talk to him. We started talking one night. Next thing all of our friends were hanging out all the time. One night we had a girls night out and he called and asked me out while I was pumping gas. He joined the military after a year in college. Before he left for boot camp, he told me to plan a wedding but don't tell anyone. So he came home for a weekend during c-school and we were married. Have been married for almost 3 years. One thing he does that bugs me is when he takes out the garbage, he doesn't put in another bag.

I met my husband (Army) at my work; GAP 3 years ago. It so happened to be my last day there and was put in a different department that I never worked before. He came in with two of his friends who were looking for a sweater vest? I pretty much told them I had no idea what they were talking about, primarily because I didn't care and knew my shift ended in an hour. My "husband" decided to try on some clothes that they asked me to pick out, and I simply said "Looks good on you" (This is where my husbands and I's version differs, but this is the REAL version). He decided to buy the outfit I put together for him. At the very end of the transaction, he asked for my number. I rolled my eyes and walked away. I figured "typical military guy, hitting on a local girl.." He followed me and told me he didn't know anyone and just arrived on the island (I live in Hawaii) and asked if I could show him around. I ended up giving him my number. I had just gotten out of a 4 year relationship and thought "why not."

Long story short. He deployed to Iraq, we stayed in touch throughout the entire deployment. Before his R&R, he asked me to come to Illinois to visit his family. I was very hesitant, but he insisted and said he'd pay for my ticket. I went there and it was a great 2 weeks. Of course, our relationship only became stronger and blossomed. We remained close for the last 5 months of his deployment. I was there for his return to the islands.

With the approval of my parents, he proposed 4 months after arriving. My parents were very happy, including my daughter who became extremely attached to him (his step-daughter). We married shortly after. He is now deployed in Afghanistan. 2 days before deploying, we found out we were expecting a baby. My husband is beyond ecstatic and I am simply amazed at how involved he is. It's weird to understand that because of him being deployed, but he actually has open communication with my doctors. There are times where we actually skype during OB appointments. His face is priceless everytime he hears the heartbeat or sees baby on the screen. During one of our skyping sessions, he found out we were expecting a boy.

As far as things that drive me up the wall-- he likes to stay at home and relax where I like to go out and do fun things. I work 6 days a week and anytime to get out is great for me, whereas he can stay at home and sleep the entire weekend off. He also looooves to splurge. Yes, he makes his money (we don't share accounts), and can do what he wants just as I do what I want, but this kinda spending is redic. He bought a Chevy truck, and traded it in for a brand new 2010 one 4 months later, and bought a Motorcycle all in the same month. He buys computers, tv's, phones like nothing. He definitely likes to live the luxury life whereas I'm a penny saver. When I tell him he'll regret it, he laughs it off... months down the road he'll tell me "Yeah, you were right." Ai!

I met my husband when I was 11 and he was 13, my little bother played baseball with his little brother and we both worked in the consesion stand. We where best friends for 6 years before we stated dating. He joined the ARMY just before we got togther... I always said I would never marry a military man because I didn't want to wait on anyone but when he finally asked me out I couldn't say no:) We have been togther for almost 7 yearsand married for a little over 2 years. We have a beautiful daughter whos a 18 months old. He drives me crazy when he getts all up set because I talk to someone else while on the phone with him and two hours later I call him and hes doing the same thing. LOL

I met my husband through a friend of mine. She was dating him and when we first met at the bowling alley, I couldn't keep my eyes off him. We got together 2 days after my 24th birthday, (August 25th 2009). He got a call from his Army Reserves Commander in February 2010 telling him that he was going to Iraq in June 2010. We got married April 3rd 2010. We made it through the long year deployment and we're still going strong today. What bugs me is when he ignores me and plays on his Xbox for hours at a time. He's been home since June 20th 2011 and that's all he does all the time. I'm about to smash it lol.

My husband and I met about 17 years ago when we were both airmen stationed at Ramstein AB in Germany. We knew eachother for about a year and then we dated for about 6 weeks before he proposed (which I was not ready for). We then married six months later and will be celebrating sixteen years together this October 7th. :) He is in the Airforce. He is the biggest procrastinator, I think, on the face of the earth...but he's the best husband and father so I forgive him. ;) He's my best friend.

I met my husband my freshman year in high school. He was the "older" guy in my biology class (2 1/2 years older). I ended up being moved from that class and started dating a friend of his. When everything fell apart with his friend we started hanging out. Two months later he held me down and tickled me until I asked him out. We've been together for almost ten years. He joined the Army my senior year of high school. There is only a few things that drive me nuts. His video game habit is at the top of the list. The second is telling me he'll do something in just a minute and it doesn't get done. My full trash can, he even complained about it this morning, is proof that he forgets to do what I ask him. Those are minor and eventually he'll take the trash out :)

I met my hubby Frank at the local community college. He joined the Navy when we found out we were having our daughter. We've been married for almost 9 years now. He likes to mumble and that drives me bonkers! I just do it back to him and he gets the hint. Lol! I wouldn't trade him for anything. :)

My husband is Leslie, he's in the Navy. The only thing he does that drives me crazy is chew with his mouth open. He doesn't do it often but when he does I make sure he realizes he's doing it. LOL We met online by total fate. We chatted online for a week (at first I thought he was crazy), then I allowed him to call me. We talked for hours on end everyday after he got out of school (navy school). After about a month I decided it was ok to meet him. We went on a date and spent the entire weekend hanging out during the days. That was over 8 years ago. :)

I met my hubby first week of college at AFROTC Physical Training. We had same major and both were in greek houses. I actually dated a frat brother of his for 2 years. He married and divorced after college...we'd stayed friends for 9 years when we started dating and married a year later. That was 8 years ago, 5 bases since, and a set of twins. Not much drives me crazy about him...except when we PCS. About 3 months out (if we get that much warning, haven't always) he gets all OCD on cleaning out the pantry and fridge. REALLY, we have to eat and I'm not gaining 20 lbs because we eat out the last 2 months because of his OCD. Nonperishable good will pack, and when we run out of stuff, I'll get just enough for the meal I'm fixing, but he doesn't see it that way. At least, we are well practiced at this now and he can laugh about it, but there still a little tension about it at times.

I met my hubby working as a waitress in a restaurant. I love men in uniforms. He is in the Army! We went out on our first date and then 5 years later we are more in love than ever. He is my hubby and my best friend. I love him so much. The only thing I can think off that drives me insane about him is that he changes the conversation when I'm in the middle of talking. LOL.
