My partner got PCS orders overseas to Guam but is trying to get out of it. He has 2 kids who he’s been living away from for 6 years due to not being able to be stationed near them. He’s coming up on a 3 year shore duty and wants to move closer to them but the navy is trying to move him to Guam. Just this past month one of his kids got accepted into EFMP. We are really wanting to move closer to the kids. Moving to Guam would make it extremely difficult to visit the kids. Does anyone have experience with this?
I started seeing someone while they were home recovering from Ukraine, and he's gone back again now. I've decided to lean into our feelings for eachother and see what happens with him, i.e. not go back to dating even though he made it clear I could and he would understand. He's been texting everyday without fail despite missiles etc. landing all around him, so I'm pretty sure he's feeling the same and staying interested in me. Frustrating that we never had a chat about what we are, but anyway.. I find myself at a loss asto how to respond sometimes. He's quite frank about believing he will die out there, telling me about the missiles landing, and being scared but playing it off as well, etc. I'm completely not used to this kind of world and can't imagine what he's going through. He's already said he doesn't want people to tell him to be safe etc, as that's a given, but then I just find myself repeating 'I'm glad you're okay'. He said I need to assume he always wants pictures of me, so I try and send them frequently, but other than that I haven't a clue what I can say or do to help him through this. I also selfishly worry that what we have will fade if the conversation is literally just him telling me awful things and all I can say is I'm glad you're okay 😅
So I facetimed my husband yesterday. He is in Okinawa. He was in a friends room and they were drinking. It was a few males and a few women as well. They were pre gaming before going out. I told him to message me when he got home, so I’d know he was safe. He never messaged me, so this morning when I FaceTimed him his friend picked up and told me he was sleep and showed him sleeping to me, along with the other 4 people passed out randomly. The friend who answered was one of the women that I spoke to the night prior before they went out. Nothing about the situation made me think anything was going on. My husband keeps asking if I’m mad that she picked up. I’m not, although I would’ve liked it to be him who answered. I understand how things can get. Should I be mad??? I don’t have any reason to not trust him?
hey! so, my partner is stationed in the UK with the USAF, and I'm currently on an extended vacation visit here with him. we want to get married soon, but are having trouble finding info about if we can get married here (on-base or off) or if we have to go back to the States for a marriage license and ceremony. we pretty much just want to elope, a traditional ceremony + reception is not important to either of us. does anyone have any experience with getting married overseas when both partners are US citizens? or have links to share to accurate web resources? TIA!!
