The military forces people to grow up fast – especially when it comes to marriage.That's what military wife Wesley Ann Wade said when talking about marrying young in the military.He slowly took another puff of his cigarette, careful to steady his shaking hands., a Palestinian uprising against the Israeli occupation that led to intensified Israeli-Palestinian violence from 2000 to 2005.Wade and other military couples said the "young marriage complex" has existed for years when star-crossed lovers eloped just before deployments.This still exists today, according to several Clarksville couples, but sometimes for reasons that are much different. My boyfriend and I have been dating for two months…so this is a brand new relationship. Will I be a good enough girlfriend, like do I send him packages when he is gone? He won’t know anything that is going on in my life and that makes me so sad, because the next year of my life is full of exciting things. I told him about it and we watched that movie Taking Chance, which was just…heavy.
Over half (56.1 percent) on active duty are married.
I think that having the military on your "résumé" can be a divisive thing, and am just wondering on peoples' opinions on that. I've been out of the Army for about a year now, and it really varies a lot. If you have been in the military then you probably have more structure to you life but depending on what you have seen then you could have some emotional and mental baggage( that doesn't mean crazy). I've never had my military service be anything but a source of pride from the women in my life.
Some people will treat you awesome just because you're a veteran, others will treat you like crap. Either way I think all military men deserve respect and recognition. Deployment is hard on a family, but it is what it is. When it comes to military men, former or current, one of my general assumptions is, that they are okay with owning guns and using guns on people. The bottom line is, your lifestyle and that of your (future) partner need to match (at least to some degree).
Add to those statistics the fact that the Army has the highest percentage of married members at almost 60 percent, according to the report.
So, there are still a lot of young military lads and ladies getting hitched. "Most people in their 30s and 40s don't see the stuff a 20-year-old soldier sees," Wesley Ann said.
