    for months at a time--and still have room for him when he comes home. Many who try, don't last. They figure if they're gonna be single parents, they might as well BE single.  

    I was a widow when I married this husband.  I was older (age 38 when we married) and I don
    t do authoritarian systems really well--which meant I was NOT a Typical Navy WIfe (after 17 years of Catholic education, I   am inclined to get pissed off at that sort of crap).  I was also much better educated than the avergae E5s wife. I was childless by choice, a feminist, a WIccan, and a writer and professional woman. I did NOT fit in wel. I learned to go it alone and find friends outside the military community. His last squadron, VPU1, was very different--the wives actually WERE clsoe-knit because of the circumstances (remember all those # 3 al Qaeda types we kept hitting with drones? that squadron brought the intel that took out 32 of them).

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
