After a long time (I say long, possibly 5 years) of going from one shite job to another I am seriously contemplating going from weekend warrior to a full time carrear in the Army. Infantry to be specific. I have no rank, no tours, and no relatively major qualifications (99% of my driving licences and a level 1 Light Gun) so I'm on the understanding that I will have to do the full 26 weeks infantrymans basic training. My question is this. Has anyone here joined up or do they know of someone who joined up whilst married with own house. I'm not expecting any special treatment but would like to know how they found it personally (how did wife take it, where the lads different with you because of said marrige etc). Mrs TBM is dead against the idea but I've allways been honest with her about my ambitions to join the army since we first met (4/5 years ago). I've reached the point where I'm so unhappy at work that my answer to her doubts is "If you don't like it, you know where the door is". Which is not a good stage to be at. Any info appreaciated. ps: All offers to look after/shag/sexually assault/etc my wife are welcome. I'm fully expecting incomming with this thread as is usually the case with ARRSE. Please make them as funny as you can so I can get a laugh whilst telling my lovely wife she'll have company whilst I'm away.
