I have been thinking of re-enlisting for a few months now, so I went along to an Army open day in Glasgow yesterday, and its really made me want to join. The problem is, when I first joined I only had me to think about and it was an easy decision. Now I'm engaged to my partner of nearly 2 years, and we have a 1 year old kid. My partner has told me that she couldn't handle me being away for training, or if I was deployed on a 6 month tour. She has told me that if I was to join it would be best for us to split. Now that's the last thing on my mind. I don't want to look back and think of what could have been (on both fronts). I know lots join when they are single or have no kids. Has anyone been in a similar situation?
