I believe you are correct. Don’t take my word though I’m no expert on this lol
They pay for my summer term classes and textbooks throughout the year out of pocket and make payments to pay back the financial aid I’ve used. I pay at least $2500 every spring and fall semester so I’m pretty deep in debt lol
Unfortunately not. I use financial aid to help pay for my tuition. I’m just blessed that my parents are more than willing to handle the expenses. There are also military spouse tuition assistance programs that I’m looking into to help get me through the next couple of semesters and to take some of the load off of them.
Just stay busy girl! It’s gonna be tough but it’ll be worth it to see him on his graduation day.
My husband and I met through having mutual friends on Facebook. He messaged me and we started texting… nothing super magical and romantic lol. But finally spending time with him one-on-one in person was amazing ❤️ He didn’t even try to hold my hand or kiss me until the third date. He was definitely a gentleman ☺️
And thank you so much, you’re so sweet! Good luck with your new journey! You can do it 👌
…continued… “My family is very traditional they want me to finish college before I get married & they don’t understand why id want to marry Blake and move away. I don’t know anyone over there and I am afraid that if I moved out there without finishing school I wouldn’t find a job & I worry about money. But a part of me knows we won’t be able to last another 3 years like this especially with his deployment coming in Dec. I just don’t know what to do.”
I was in a situation very similar to yours. I was starting my third year of college, my husband (fiancé at the time) and I were going to get married in the spring, I was going to transfer schools and move to where he is so I could continue my education but end the distance between us.
It seemed like a great plan but after us doing some logical thinking we realized that financially it wasn’t smart & both of our families would be very upset if we didn’t include them in a traditional wedding so this is what we did instead…
Respectfully my husband went to my parents and asked for their blessing to marry me. My parents absolutely love him but were concerned I wouldn’t finish school if I got married so after speaking to them myself and telling them that wouldn’t happen, wedding plans started! This was in January. We just got married June 23 of this year and as I stay here finishing college, my husband is at his duty station now collecting BAH and putting the extra money in our savings account. Over the next 9 months we’ll continue to save money, I’ll finish college, & alrdy being married, I can move with him immediately after spring semester. Yes it has caused us to be long distance longer than we wanted but in the end it’s going to set us up for a better future & financial situation.
But that’s my story. What you need to do is think logically… What is best for us financially? How can I complete school? Yes the distance is hard but it’s not impossible. You have the rest of your lives to be together. Don’t deprive yourself out of the education and career you deserve just because you’re feeling sad right now. You WILL regret it in the long run when you’re struggling to pay the bills and you’re wishing you had just toughed it out and finished college.
Keep your head up and your heart strong. And remember… A relationship that is only strong face-to-face isn’t truly strong at all.
