Military Spouse Life, Military Spouse Love Stories
My husband and I met when we were teenagers.  Little did I know this handsome, cocky guy- who started out as "just a friend", would turn out to be my best friend, my mentor, my lover, the father of my children, and definitely my better half.   At 18 years old he joined the Navy and left a small town in Mississippi to move on to bigger and better things. In September of 1998, I joined him in Great Lakes, IL to begin our military journey and never once looked back.  I had no way of knowing what great things this man of mine would accomplish; but I knew I wanted to be by his side while he did it.   I've learned many things from him during our years together: I've learned…

Our love story starts off pretty typical-we met through a mutual friend. We met in 2013 while he was home on Christmas leave and every time he was home after that we all hung out together. I was with someone else at the time and he had just gone through a break-up. But he was always so sweet and fun so I enjoyed his company. On his Christmas leave in 2015, he came over to hang out with all of us. He told us he was preparing for a deployment a few weeks later. I hugged him tight before he left and he told me to reach out if I needed anything.  By the end of January, my relationship I had been in took its final bow. My ex was…

Milspouse Love Story -A Knight In Shining Armor

Military Spouse Life, Military Spouse Love Stories
6 years ago, I was in a broken place until a man who I met when we were 12 years old found me on Facebook. I was his first kiss and after his 13th birthday. I never saw him again. It wasn't until he in boxed me and asked me a couple of questions. I answered him because it’s only a few who would have known this tomboy 🙄. He said to me, "thank you for being so kind to me when we were kids. I have been looking for you for years." I smiled and didn’t take anything out of it. Months down the line he put in my inbox, "I know it’s early but I’m trying to lock it down." I was like, "yeah right." We were both…

Coast Guard Girlfriend To Navy Wife Love Story

Coast Guard Girlfriend To Navy Wife Love Story

Military Spouse Life, Military Spouse Love Stories
I am a formal Coast Guard GF of 2 years and a current Navy Wife of 7 years. I consider myself a master packer, an expert at finding my tribe quickly and a tiny human tamer with my four little ones. I feel strongly that I became a military spouse in order to help others because it was not in my original "plans". But then again, that's basically how military life is! I met my husband in 2004. He was stationed in my home town of Memphis, Tennessee, in the Coast Guard and we went to church together. I had never really interacted with military members growing up, so I was a complete newbie to everything. He was tall, dark and handsome and so quiet. I actually thought he hated…

Originally published 1/21/20 Okay, so promise me you won’t tell my husband this because I’ve denied it for ten years now (and will probably take it to my grave!).  I was the Program Director for the Boys and Girls Club of Danville, Illinois. We had a table at the job fair that was held at the community college. It was my co-worker’s turn to represent the company that day, so I was back at the office. After a couple of hours, I received a phone call from her in which she said, “There’s a hot Marine here – you should come!”  Although I wasn’t dressed for meeting “the one”, I didn’t have much work to do, so I headed to the job fair. Of course I took extra brochures to…
