What It’s Like to Be the Significant Other of A Servicemember

When my now husband and I started dating, he told me upfront that he had recently signed a contract with the Navy and would be moving to Charleston, South Carolina in a little under a year. I didn’t think much of it at the time, as I had no intentions in diving into a serious relationship, but over time, he gave me no choice but to fall for him.

In just a few months, he started sending me job posts in Charleston and articles on the top sights to see in the city.

By this point, I was in love, but I kept telling myself, and my friends, “I’ll never marry someone in the military.”
