I am so torn.
She is at the recruiter now, talking, asking questions etc etc.
The benefits are damn good and the opportunities are as well.
It just doesn't make sense (to me) that while she would be getting all of this... I would sort of be left on the sidelines.
I couldn't live on base. She couldn't live off base.
We would basically be living apart for however many years she'd be going.
I couldn't do that. She says she won't do it if that's the case.
So, she's looking into the National Guard. Still, I fear for her getting "caught being gay" and then kicked out.
She and I are going to have a long talk about all of it tonight and I really thank you all for all of the advice and perspective you have given me!
As of right now, we are discussing reserves (national guard). It gets her all of the great benefits but without (hopefully) being shipped off somewhere and us having to live apart. If she does join, it will be just one term(?) and then we will see from there.
It's still up in discussion big time though. Nothing is signed yet. Just talking.
