    spouses as I do officer spouses. It is a different world out there.

    There are still problems. I won't lie to you. And I have been told I'm not a typical officer spouse but truth be told, a lot of officers spouses are not typical anymore. It's why most Officer Spouses' Clubs are struggling membership-wise. They've limited themselves for too long to those that can manage day time lunches and can volunteer for board meetings at 9am. I tried multiple times to switch events to evenings, including those ever important board meetings, but many don't want to lose quality time with the hubbie. I told them it was about time their significant other spent time with the kids without the second parent hanging around. Some get it, some don't. But it is changing.
