Only if your behavior was untrustworthy or to erratic would things maybe be pulled for a period of time.
As for the marital counseling, that is even more wrong, they usually look favorably on voluntary counseling. and there is great options in the army at least you have options like "Military & Family Life Consultant Program" its a program that offers all kinds of counseling that is kept confidential and off your record. Now if you folks had a "domestic incident" and ever had to call in law enforcement that would be a different thing.
Yep, I think it's a b.s. excuse that he gives me. I don't think he's intentionally lying, just doesn't know what he's talking about... Thankfully we're in a pretty good place right now, but next time, we're running to counseling.
The marriage retreats sound nice. I wouldn't mind doing something like that one day.

I'm trying to find out what I can, but I have been so busy. She is really stressed out.
I am trying to gather as much information on Andrews AFB in general, if anyone has it!
What sort of info are you looking for? My cousin-in-law gave birth at Andrews in 2006. I don't know if they are still birthing there or not. She had a blood clotting disorder and ended up with a section after TOL. The hospital was old, but comfortable for her and my cousin. Beds and meals for mom and dad for 4+ days. They also let 10+ people visit in her room at all hours of the day--the hosptial was empty. Not my cup of tea, but she was satisfied.
Does your friend have other children? This website
is neat if you live in that area. You can sign up for a weekly email newsletter that has good ideas of family-friendly things to do all over the area. You said they're in temporary housing--will they be living on base? If not, I would suggest they look east on Rt. 4 (away from Suitland Parkway).MP
, hooray for little surprises!
Kourtney, I hope you're feeling better. Ignore your mother if you can. I would have lost my $h!t if my mom said that to me. You're a good mama.
