In a military relationship, getting married or engaged at a young age is normal because we probably don't have forever, but we have right now. So we take it and appreciate it.
That's why we decide to grow up faster and be the spouse of someone in the military. We chose to put things aside for our men who fight for this country. Yes, I may be young and in love with a man in the military, but it's him I do this for. Marrying young may be silly to others, but when you're in a military relationship, your perspective changes. He puts his life on the line in exchange for changing my last name and having me by his side for strength. If you have a problem, feel free to take his place so he can be home with me.
Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. 🫂
