Questions about becoming an Army Wife.....

Hi, my name is Kelly. I have so many unanswered questions. My boyfriend recently joined the army 3 months ago, but he's in training right now. Yesterday he asked me to marry him, I'm nervous (lol). What are somethings I should expect becoming an army wife? Is it really hard like others say, going months and years without seeing your husband? How do I manage moving all around the world? How is it living on post? What are the benefits like? I really love him to pieces, I want to spend the rest of my life with this man! I have been so nervous since he asked me to marry him. I reside in Houston, TX as of now. Soon moving to New York to attend FIT(Fashion Institute of Technology). Would it be hard living two differen't places? Would it be best to move closer to where he's stationed? I just need answers Lol #Help O_o

my brother is in the navy, i haven't seen him but 2 a year for 2 weeks and this is going on year 6... I can't tell you how hard it is for me to wait so long inbetween his visits. I suggest you watch a few videos of wives and kids welcoming their daddy home from the army.... these are feelings you WILL be feeling.... get yourself ready for this.
