25 TellTale Signs That You're a Military Spouse

25 TellTale Signs That You're a Military Spouse
Posted March 19th, 2014 @ 7:08am



I have so much admiration for military spouses. Seriously...I don't know how you do it. I can barely stand to think of my husband going on a business trip for three days once a year. I have several friends who have to raise their kids as "single parents" while they're husbands/wives are deployed. They are heroes in my book.

According to the Huffington Post, here are 25 TELLTALE SIGNS THAT YOU'RE A MILITARY SPOUSE:


1. You don't think long distance relationships are a deal breaker -- and you have the love letters to prove it.

2. You are incredibly close friends with someone you never would have crossed paths with without the military.

3. You have spent at least two of the following without your significant other: a) birthday b) Christmas/New Year's c) anniversary d) birth of your child

4. You keep a stash of various home items that don't go in the current house, because you know they might go in the next one. After all, when you move every 2-3 years.

5. You have shamelessly used the military card to get out of a tough spot at least once (e.g., speeding ticket, airline issues, even dinner reservations).
