Wife of a Sailor is starting a fun meme called MilSpouse Friday Fill-In.  Every Thursday she’s going to post a list of questions as a way to get to know all the mil spouses out there in the blogosphere.  All you have to do is answer her questions in a blog post on Fridays and link it up on her blog.  Simple as that!  Hope all you mil spouses out there will join in on the fun!

  This week’s questions are:

1.How did you and your spouse/significant other meet? I usually tell people we met through a mutual friend because if I told people that the mutual friend was my boyfriend and my husband was his roommate, then I’d really look like the evil witch with a b that I was.  (To my credit, my then boyfriend and now husband didn’t know each other before they became roommates.)  Let’s just say my ex-boyfriend didn’t live there very long, and he wasn’t exactly the first in line to congratulate us when we got engaged 9 months later.

2.What is the best thing about being a MilSpouse?There are so many amazing things about being a mil spouse.  But I’d have to say the best part is the community.  We are all strong, independent forces to be reckoned with, and I can’t think of any other community that cheers each other on like we do.  I know that I could never get through my husband’s current deployment without my mil spouse comrades, both in person and online.

3.What is the hardest thing about being a MilSpouse?Oh, I could write a book on that one!  I’d have to say the loneliness.  Mil spouses get married and then spend a lot of time alone.  But absence makes the heart grow fonder, and I think my marriage is stronger because of our frequent separations.

4.What is your favorite dish?Sushi, sushi, and more sushi.  After living in Japan for 3 years, I learned that I could easily eat sushi every meal of the day.

5.If you could change one thing in this world, what would it be?Hatred.  I purposely avoid discussing controversial issues like politics on my blog, but I truly believe that hatred is the root of many evils in this world.

  1. I LOVE sushi!! I can't wait to be able to eat it all I want again. One of the things on the do not eat list while pregnant…raw fish. 😉 But I have got rolls that have the cooked stuff and cali rolls just to satisfy my sushi cravings. I hope you have a great weekend.

  2. Engaged to your ex-husbands roommate…yeah, that had to be awkward. Hahaha!

    Sushi is one of my favorites too. I don't like raw sushi though. I'll stick with things like shrimp and crab in my sushi (I guess that's not technically sushi, but I like to try and be cool and all, "Yeah, I eat sushi!" 🙂

  3. Oh my gosh I love sushi!!! I would love to go to Japan as well. That must have been amazing!

    I believe mil spouses are amazing. You are right, there are no better cheerleaders and friends than fellow mil spouses! Who else would truly understand what we go through??

    Hatred. Yup. It sucks. Too true.

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. There is only one type of food I really cannot stand and that is sushi! What an interesting story of how you met your husband – but true love is true love!

  5. I agree! The strong bonds with other military spouses is hard to top! And I also think my marriage is stronger due to time apart. It gives us the chance to fully appreciate the other person!!

  6. I think the separations do create a strong bond in the marriage. Not that I would wish them on anyone. But I that's what I told Gunlover. We've been married 1 year, and we're going through a deployment, we've been through a pregnancy, a birth, and about to be dealing with a court battle for my oldest daughter. We're finding out very quickly what our marriage is made of. And it's standing the test. 🙂

  7. Thank you for your comment on my last post! Sometimes it seems like everyone BUT me is in some wonderful relationship, and it really helps keep things in perspective to know that every couple hits rocky patches every now and then.

    P.S. I love sushi too! 🙂

  8. It's really sad that you have to avoid posting your views on certain topics because of how hateful people can be when they don't agree with you. I totally agree with you because it just isn't worth it sometimes because you aren't trying to change how they feel and they won't change how you think by being so hateful.
    Love your blog though and totally will be follow you!
