My boyfriend is thinking of going into the military, more specifically, the Air Force. He hasn’t completely decided at, but even so, it is killing me inside. I love him and would support him through anything, but we’ve been together every day since we were 15 (now 17, almost 18). I don’t know what I’ll do for 8 weeks while he is gone and while he is in tech school. We’ll have to get married soon, which I’m beyond stoked for, but our parents will be pissed. If we aren’t married, I won’t be able to live with him, and that’s one of the huge reasons he wants to go.
I have so many mixed emotions right now. I’d really love to hear some advice. Is it worth it? The loneliness, long deployments, the time he’s gone? I need help. I want to stay positive around him, so I’m relying on the Internet to comfort me.
