CAMO - Connecting All Military Others
After all the long hard work and Long Distance I Finally get the chance to live with my husband in North Carolina yet my family lives in california and it will be the longest ill be apart from them. my moms crying and i hate seeing it. Im her youngest daughter yet the closest to her. idk what to do??
Well, if I were in this situation I would go to live with my husband. I mean, I get that you're close to your mom. I'm the same way. But it's a lot easier to stay close and connected now than it used to be. You and your mom can have regular skype dates and still talk on the phone.
I hope this helps!
I'm also extremely close with my mom, but I would move with my husband. Because, when you married him, you also married the military. And you should know things like this are going to happen. Your mom will have to understand. Plus, think of the positives. When she flies out to visit, it'll be fun! And skyping will keep you guys in touch too. Remember, it's not forever.
yeaah it does, cause i know im not happy this way i need a change. i just dont know anyone?
i'm in the exact same situation pretty much, except i'll be moving to germany. Im very excited to be with my husband but it doesnt make it any easier to leave everything and everyone you know behind, especially my mom. She is very supportive of us and wants us t be happy no matter where it is but it is definitely still very hard. Its been just me and my mom and sister and has been that way for awhile and we are extremely close. I would be lying if i said i wasnt nervous and apprehensive, but im also anxious and can't wait to be with my husband and make the best out of every day. I dont know what i'm going to do without her even in the same country but i know that when i do need her, she will always be there and no distance can ever take that away. I plan on taking trips home to visit and lots of skype and phone calls. She raised me to be a strong, courageous and positive person and thats exactly what i'm going to be :) Its an amazing opportunity to start an adventure with your husband, the same as it is for me with mine and my best advice is to make the most of it all. New things and changes are always hard, but nothing worthwhile is ever easy.
I would say go with your husband. Like the other girls said, you married not only him but the military. You need to live with your husband. He deserves it. I'm so sorry that it is hard for you to leave your mom. My mom will be crying the day I get married to my sailor, not wanting me to leave. Just sit down with her and explain to her that nothing will cut y'all's communication down. You will always be connected. Tell her that y'all should start saving up for plane tickets! That's what I do with my sister and her airman husband and my fiance. You are strong! You can do! Be with the man you love. It's time for a new chapter in your life. A joint chapter! We are military SOs, and we are strong!
