While browsing the interwebs today, I came across a “military significant other” blog. Someone was asking the “upgrade” in privileges from being a military girlfriend to a military wife. This got me thinking about the differences between the unmarried and married (besides the lovely brown dependent card).
Here’s my take on the difference from being a military girlfriend to a military wife. (note: this post is in good fun, no seriousness here)
Military Girlfriend: I want to travel The World
Military Wife: Aw, man, another PCS?!
Military Girlfriend: He looks so hot in any uniform
Military Wife: Why does his PT stuff still smell after I wash it?
Military Girlfriend: I’m going to prepare a 3-course meal for dinner for two
Military Wife: He’s getting leftovers
Military Girlfriend: I need to go all of the FRG meetings to be informed
Military Wife: I’m going to the FRG meetings if there’s free childcare and food
Military Girlfriend: I have a question, I’ll go visit the resource center on base
Military Wife: I have a question, I’ll ask on facebook
Military Girlfriend: I have the cutest sundress and heels to wear to the commissary
Military Wife: Should I wear these black yoga pants or these black yoga pants?
Military Girlfriend: We’re a sisterhood of military S.O.s
Military Wife: I know a few good people and the rest are strangers
Military Girlfriend: I will treat my dependent card with the utmost care and discretion
Military Wife: Dammit, I know that thing is SOMEWHERE in my purse
Military Girlfriend: So as a military S.O., I am entitled to…
Military Wife: As a military wife, I am entitled to nothing because the internet police will go on a social media crusade to make sure everybody knows it.
Military Girlfriend: Deployment sucks
Military Wife: Deployment sucks
