Vet Wife Life
I chose to marry a combat veteran- a United States Marine no less. I had no idea that he wouldn’t fight fair, that he would be rough around the edges, that he would be so distant and yet so tuned in. I had no idea he would be so tender hearted beneath an exterior of cold hard steel. I thought I knew that it was not gonna be easy, but I really had no idea at all
In him, I have learned what fiercely loyal and trustworthy looks like. I have seen what generosity looks like; passion, compassion, inside a skilled warrior. With him, I will never win a fight, and I’ll never lose one either- I am safe
I may have jumped into this wild ride blindly, but I have grown to understand that I was born to be his partner as much as he was born to be a Marine- it is a privilege.
Over the last 23 years, I have certainly thought I would break, but I am so grateful that I was created for such a time as this!
If your relationship is hard, and if you don’t see eye to eye, remember that the best is worth fighting for- never give up!
