Fleet Marine Life #15 – Long Distance
The military has an abnormally high divorce rate. I don’t need to read any newspaper or turn on the TV to see it. It’s happening all around me. It’s sad but it’s true. Military life is tough on marriages. Very tough. I don’t recommend marriage to anyone in the military. I especially don’t recommend having kids either because that will just drive you crazy.
If you are married in the military then you know what I’m talking about. If you are planning on getting married so that you can move out of the barracks, please don’t. It’s not worth it. Get married outside the Marine Corps like normal people.
Anyways, out in Okinawa, Japan, many people lost their girlfriends because they just grew lonely. It ain’t nothing to cry over because she wasn’t the one. Just move on and meet other fish. If you’re a male, just don’t go on craigslist or else you’ll end up with:
1. a female who weighs 2-3 times your weight
2. a female who is really old
3. a female who is really a man.
There’s a right way to do everything and a wrong way. Unfortunately, many Marines just keep doing the wrong thing until it ends up right. Or not?
Getting married to move out of the barracks since 1775. K.
