military parent?

Question

Posted 30th January 2012 37

I have a child and have wanted to join the military for a long time. I have my reasons for not doing so in the past, but my life seems to be changing drastically now. My husband is talking about divorce (though he hasn’t started anything, so I’m not sure he really wants it…that’s a different matter though) and I know the military doesn’t allow single parents to join…

So I keep thinking- If I join now, while still married, I’m not a single parent and then he’d divorce me after I’m in… I want to join. I really do!
It makes me feel like I’m lying to the force though, since I know he’ll divorce me and I’ll be a single parent.
It’s not like we’ll have joint custody, the child is mine, not his…and the child’s biological father is long gone…

Should I join?

Ugh….

I’m all for serving your country in the military, but there is a reason they have their ‘no single parents’ rule. You really should consider what is best for the child. In the military there is no guarentee that you won’t be deployed and then who will take care of your child? Further that kind of seperation from you may do very serious harm to your child (depending on his/her age).

In short, the question is not about lying to the force or finding a loophole in the rules, it really is about priorities. Remember, being a good parent and rasing your child well is just as important a service to your country as military service is.
