    Just because I can...

    Hello everyone, I joined this website at the end of Jan after my girlfriend joined up, to get to chat to some other folk in my situation.

    Thank you all for making me really welcome.

    Haven't met many (well infact any) blokes whose wife/ girlfriend is serving, surely I'm not alone?

    Anyway just wanted to say hi, hope you are all well and things are going okay for you and your O.H

    Peace

    Sebastian

    Welcome - I am sure you are not the only bloke. In fact you are not..... as I am sure you will find out when they come out of the woodwork or wherever they are lurking!!

    Re: Just because I can...

    I'd have thought it was fairly rare. Every serving girl I know has an OH that is serving. Apparently civvy chaps inevitably seem to get either;

    a) Jealous due to the heavily male environment, or

    b) Get a complex about their OH having a more masculine job than theirs.

    A generalisation I know, but to be fair I could have added,

    c) Upset that at some point she's been nailed by most of the chain of command.

    Good luck to you both though.

    My Boss is female. Her hubby is a teacher in Civvy Street. They've been married a long, long time!

    The girl with whom I share an office has just come out (ex Major) and her husband is a civvy. Another long term couple.

    Looks like i'm the first bloke to reply.

    I am regular army and my OH is TA and is currently deployed on Herrick. I know all this green stuff must be a bit strange to you, but at the end of the day we have all been in the same place as you are now.

    No question is a silly question after all.

    Re: Just because I can...

    Thats for your reply wee_jock, I do appreciate it. I'm not really sure what I'm looking for here, just looking for some people who might have some advice and experience they could give me if they've been in this position that I can chat with I guess.

    Also this webiste is full of really nice friendly people, so it's good to chat too.

    Thanks again

    Sebastian
