As a newlywed Air Force wife as of March of this year, I am no expert on marriage or relationships. My daughter and I moved 500 miles away from my hometown and my family to be with my husband. My husband tells me almost daily of his fellow airman's marriages that are on the rocks. These guys have been married almost a year or less! Their reasons? They made a mistake. A MISTAKE. Hitting the curb in your car, forgetting to empty the dishwasher, forgetting to call your mom on her birthday (major mistake) are all mistakes.
Rushing into a marriage after dating for 3 months, taking the vows and then calling it quits 6 months later because your blushing bride turned into 'vein popping out on the forehead, punched me in the face ,and threatened to stab me because I played Playstation during our me time' is not a mistake. It is a major SCREW UP.
A mistake taken to a nuclear level. Military gentlemen, just because your Applebees waitress is hot, and smiled at you as she sat your Heineken on the table, do not propose marriage because you're tired of being alone because you're away from home. Do like the rest of your intelligent comrades and make an online gaming account. Go lust it up for 90 days and if you still have feelings somewhere other than 'down below,' take it slow boys. Take it slow. If she's worth it she won't mind.
