Exclamation Army ship date..... - July 14th 2009, 07:25 AM

ok..... i just signed up for the army 3 days ago.... and im gonna be a senior in high school this fall. Me and my girl have a good relationship and we promised each other we would get married before i leave.... the problem is... i got my orders and im leaving a week after graduation. this isnt gonna leave us enough time to get married.... and i just dont think its fair to her to wait until after im done with BCT (basic training) and my AIT (advanced individual training).... because that would take 7-8 months..... any advice?

A week is plenty time to get married, it only take a few hours. Maybe not a large wedding. But you can have a small court house wedding. And then have a larger one when you get back and have time to plan.

Just start planning ahead for the wedding and I'm sure you could make it happen in that week. Best of luck =]

Hey, I can tell you that being in a relationship and especially a marriage while in the service can be VERY tough. A guy I talk with every now and then to get some info on military life, he was a Army Ranger. He was seeing his girl friend and while he couldn't do it face to face, he proposed to her over the phone (very romantic, I know). Anyway that first year he only saw her for about 5 days total that year. What I'm saying is if you want to get married with her try waiting till your done with basic and see how you guys deal with the distances and if you could put up with the lack of face to face intimacy. Or you could take her to Georgia with you while your at Fort Benning or where ever, cause some couples move to Georgia in order to be together more and it works out a little better.
