Both myself and my other half are thinking of joining the army - him as an RA officer and me as QARANC soldier. It will be about 2 years before either of us joined up (3 years for me). We were also thinking of getting married in about 2 years time (just before I finish my nursing course). We both know the basics of how the military works and realise that we'll hardly ever get to see other and understand the strains it will have on our relationship. I've read quite a few posts on here today know that people have different views on the matter of getting married - but I wondered if anyone could give me advice? Will a relationship across regiments work? Will the officer/soldier thing be an issue? Does anyone have experience of where will live (within the UK) i.e. near him? near me? Lots of questions, but I've got to make sure I've covered every angle before I sign my life away!!! Thanks.
