    What to do?

    Advertisements
    I really want to become a Marine but I'm scared that when I do I'll lose my boyfriend. It has been my dream since I was 12...is it worth the chance of losing the man I love? He is a ex Marine.

    Do you really want to be with someone who doesn't support your goals and won't put in effort to make your relationship work? If the relationship is important to him he will stick it out. If not, you end up with the career you've always wanted.

    Couldn't have said it better myself.
    If he doesn't support your goals, he's not someone you should be with. Have you talked with him about it yet? Has he shown you he won't be supportive?

    Short answer: Yes.

    You shouldn't be with someone who doesn't support your dreams.
