Mr M works for one of the military agencies and i always knew it won't be easy being his wife because from day one, he never hid how busy or serious his job can be and I always thought oh well, I can definitely cope because I actually don't like to be choked by my partner. But lately I realized being an army wife is actually more difficult than you can imagine.
Firstly, there is long distance you have to cope with almost every single day and even when he is close, you still have to cope with him working late and sometimes not coming home at all.. Another aspect I don't enjoy about this life is the panic and fear that grips you everytime that He tells you honey, we are going for an operation or something like that 😱. You start praying all the prayers in the world to God to keep him safe and then you pray he isn't transferred to a war zone or some place where you won't be able to talk to him. The last thing that kills me the most is not being able to even plan special days or events together because he can't just leave his job for you like that... He has to protect his father's land so that means most times, you are second on the list of important things. I honestly think women married to men in the uniform deserve to paid an emotional allowance because without our calmness,support and prayers... The country might not be that safe.....i mean just imagine all the wives revolting and deciding that today we want to frustrate our men. I tell you there would be so many accidental discharge wahala on our streets. Being an Army wife means you have to be stronger than him emotionally and spiritually.,it means knowing that your man won't be there for birthdays, graduations, anniversaries and the likes but still loving him regardless...Being an Army wife means being ready to drop all that you are doing to go be there for your man... It means going to bed most times on your own with only the TV or Radio as your company...It requires that you can fix some things yourself and being able to take charge because the man of the house is You most times.....Being an army wife is hard but then It is the life I chose 😐.....did someone just ask are there good sides? Of course there is but I would write about that tomorrow.... Till then Stay safe and love hard.....regardless of the job
