Newbie/Newlywed Navy Wife-Staying in TX

Hey guys I just got married to my Sailor, he's stationed in San Diego but we decided for me to stay home in TX because he is only in for another year and a half and will be out most of the time. Any advice on anything or even just someone to talk? I was prior army but I got injured very early on in my career and had to get out.

Re: Newbie/Newlywed Navy Wife-Staying in TX

  • I'm married to a Marine and am in another branch and we're currently separated due to my training. I'm so sorry to hear you got hurt!
    I've seen a lot of military surprise homecomings. It wouldn't work on me. I always have my back to the corner and my face to the door. Looking for terrorists, criminals, various other threats, and husbands.
  • My husband and I are both Navy but currently stationed apart.  We do lots of google chat, talk daily, send pictures to each other of things going on, send care packages/cards/hand written letters.  We've also read marriage/relationship books together by reading one chapter then discussing/answering questions.  We're Christians and will read a chapter from the Bible together each night, I'll read 5 verses then he reads 5.  I start on even chapters, he starts on odd. Lately we've started playing words with friends together.  Do whatever you need to do to feel like you're married and a part of each other's lives.  By the time I PCS we'll be married for 17 months, yet I we are still extremely close and strong.  The best of luck!
