I first applied to join the army in January of this year. My girlfriend didn't really say much about it, but now I have passed selection and have received my date for the 4th of October, she is no longer ok about it. She hasn't told me not to go, but she has wondered what would happen if we split up over it. hope she can ctand by me. I am 19; we have been together for nearly 3 years. Anyone got the same problem or had the same problem and do you think relationships can work whilst in the army?
