    okinawa or not?

    Advertisements
    I've been debating this for a while now. Me and my DF(soon to be DH) have the opportunity to get stationed in Okinawa, Japan. Either he could go alone for a year, or we could go together for 3 years. There are many pros and cons with this. We want to start having kids in about two years, but if we're in Japan I dont know how that'd work. It's a beautiful island...like paradise...so I know we'd have a ton of fun there, but 3 years? That's a long time from our family/friends. And plus he said he didn't want me to work while i was there. so 3 years without work..Then there are the tsunamis..which can be really dangerous. Ughh i just don't know what we should do...any ideas of what I should do?

    here's what it looks like

    You could do 3 years!!! The military is your family. I was there for 3 years, and not 1 tsunami....we did have typhoons (they are like hurricanes). Remember, he will not get accompanied orders (3 year orders) unless you guys are married....so if he's looking to get orders soon..........

    My little Loves!

    We spend almost 9 years in Oki, we would still be there, but they wouldn't let us stay.

    Our kids grew up there and they loved it, all they talk about it's going back.

    yeah so that has all changed now..i wont be going there now because DF and I are over =[
    if you didn't read from the other thread, he just found out his ex girlfriend is 8 months pregnant and he left me to be with her..it pisses me off so much because those relationships never work when you only go back out with her for a kid. i hate this..
