Like the title says my husband and I have been together 14 years we have 3 girls 13, 5, 2. We just bought a house 2 years ago and I have a really decent job for being in Ohio ive started a career and was hoping to move farther up in the company. He just in the last 2 months was vaguely talking about the military but said it would be something he would gradually look into and if happened it wouldn't be until around march of 2018. We have a pretty big vacation that ive been planning for months now. I came home today to find out hes contacted a recruiter and is taking a practice asvab and wants to now leave asap. I dont like the idea for a few reasons one i have small children and are across the country from any and all family. We moved here for his but are now distant from them for there poor choices in life. Two my career that ive been working on if he leaves i have to give that up with no help with the kids. Three I busted my but and went through so much to get this house and haven't even done all i want to it and he wants to sell it and leave like its nothing. I've expressed my thoughts concerns etc ive cried tears pleaded and hes still set on what he wants. I'm at a loss on what to do, is this a good idea???
