Did anyone watch Army Wives this week? I just watched it on the DVR while I ate dinner. Hence the upcoming rant.
They sent Frank home to "deal with his wife?" WTF?? I'm not an Army wife, but I'm pretty sure that doesn't happen. The Navy would certainly not do that.
The whole "deal with your wife" thing pisses me off to no end. I'm not defending what she did, but yes, Claudia Joy, it's a huge double standard. While cheating military memebers are punished, IF CAUGHT, they are not branded as whores. DH has had to take multiple sailors to Captain's Mast (basically where they are issued their punishment) for getting caught having sex on the ship, and they are restricted to the ship during port visits and their pay gets cut for awhile. Really, this just hurts the spouse left at home because now there is less money.
I know of at least 2 officers on DH's ship that cheat on their wives, but no one says anything. I guarantee you there are high fives all around when they hook up with a girl at a bar in a foreign port (not DH because he's not a pig).
I'm so effing tired of hearing about "the career." Luckily I'm married to man who realizes it's the 21st century, but I have a friend whose husband is obsessed with all the ways she's "ruining his career." Let me tell you, the wives make the career. I'm not trying to be all woe is me and I'm certainly not complaining about my life, but without us at home taking care of everything there would be no military.
Ugh, Army Wives. Give me a break.
All right. I'm done.
