my fiance deployed off to military training 2 months ago and will soon be going to afghanistan/pacastan. I dont know how to cope with that. and I am now 8 months pregnant can anyone help me that is going through the same situation??
Being an army wife is tough but, you and your husband are going through this together. He will be far away physically but you will be able to e-mail, chat and have the occasional phone call as well as spend a lot of time putting together great care packages!
There are lots of groups on post that will also help you cope with being newly alone and having a deployed husband so I highly suggest you look into that.
Luckily your husband is not going to deploy right away out of training to he will be able to be with you and your new baby for awhile before being deployed so try and focus on that time to be close and spend as much time together as possible.
It's hard to cope with...but you have to remember that you made the choice to be with a man who will be fighting for our country...which IS a courageous thing to do, but you made the choice to be with him, so now you have to deal with the baggage he comes with...good luck and I hope your soldier returns home safely to you..:)
sorry I meant fiance through all of that, not husband. Are you planning on getting married before he deploys? Because if your not you don't get the health benefits or privileges on post without it. He also will get a nice fat bonus when he gets deployed if he's married because you are separated from each other.
Unless you are married you will not be included in the military support services for family members.
You are pregnant and engaged...why not get married BEFORE he deploys?
It does NOT make sense to wait...
You need the benefits for you and your child...
I agree with getting married to him, but I am also an army wife and every things going to be fine. yes bad things can happen, but these things can happen anywhere so just hold on there with the rest of us and pray for this war to end soon.
You really should contact the military support services for family members. Your situation is the reason those services exist.
