I’m 17 years old & a Senior in high school. My boyfriend & I have been together for 3 years now, and he joined the Navy & is currently in A school right now. He’s only a year older than me..I’m so proud of him, but we are both stressed out about what is going to happen with our relationship. We both want it to work out.. I was going to join the Air Force right after I graduate, but I do want to be with him, and I know joining the Air Force will make it even harder for the both of us; being stationed at different places, not taking leave at the same time. I want to work around our relationship and not join the Air Force anymore. Maybe I can go to college & wait for him. I know you guys might be thinking that I should do what I want to do, but honestly I do want to spend the rest of my life with him. We’ve been together for 3 years. Yes we’re young but & I want to be that military couple that actually lasts.. I know he will be deployed a lot, but I don’t mind waiting. He’s stressing about this situation too, but I told him no matter who he ends up with, it will still be hard.
Any experiences on this?
What do you guys think I should do?
Please & thank you :)
