If she's worth keeping hold of, she'll wait for you to finish your training. If not, she's not worth fretting about.

She'll be fine = plenty of blokes around to throw one up her clacker whilst you're gone...

Ask for Germany and then ditch her. unless you feel that you will be with her forever

How awesome is she?? Let's see the photographic evidence!! Then we can make a proper judgement of your situation.

I am sure that she will support you in your career, then when you have a nice house and money in the bank she will take you for every penny you have.

I was going to reply in a positive manner, but after this dork bit at VMechA's comment I thought about it again, re-read the original post and now can't be bothered. This is probably him :safe: ******** :x

You sound a bit bitter Taff. Been shafted by some old Doris recently. :?

Tommo I met my wife before I signed on the dotted line. She was 16 and I was 17. Did the 22 years without too many hitches. We have now been married 35 years. If you have the right girl then you can stop worrying.

Never base your career choices on a woman, seen it happen too many times and a lot of guys leave the army etc for their other halves only to be shafted later. What you should be asking is, will she be too bothered about not being able to see me all the time? No one can tell you how busy you'll be because everyone is different. Am sure if you're THAT into each other then you'll be fine! :)

I suggest your girlfriend logs onto Rear Party and reads the articles; they'll be much better informed than here!

If she is awesome (and we have not yet seen any photographic confirmation of that), are you going to survive 3 months without seeing her?

Don't join unless you understand that the Army comes first. Otherwise, you'll be a welfare case in the first year.
