Memes That Explain Exactly What Life As A Military Spouse Is Really Like
Military life is an adventure of its own. You really have to have lived this life to understand. Some of the things us military spouses go through are rather unique. It’s nice to know we are not alone in our struggles and in our excitements along the way. From PCSing to deployments to figuring out how the military works.
Military spouses come from different places in the US and the world. They come from different backgrounds. They have different belief systems and have different ways of looking at this life. The main thing they have in common is a love for their service member and a desire to do what they can to support them in this life.
Here are some of the military spouse memes that sum up the reality of military life and the situations that all of us can relate to.
It’s so hard when people want us to put our phones away. We can’t. Our spouse lives in our phone.
So much the truth. There is a plan, a new plan, back to the old plan. Keeping up can be difficult. You just have to go with the flow and accept this is the reality.
You have to have tools to get you through the hardest parts of military life. What would you add to this list?
Seriously! It took us so long to join my husband in Germany because of this. It’s hard to wait on paperwork and even more so when you know the delay is probably just because someone is taking their time to fill out their part of it.
I have these super cute coffee curtains that don’t fit in my current house. They did a few houses ago and I hope I can use them again in the future.
I think we can all understand this one…
Have lived both civilian lives and a military one, this is true. It;s just so different once they join the military.
I will never forget our homecomings. They were such special days for us.
My deployment to-do list is always so long and I never get through most of it. I am glad to have a list to focus on. That helps when the deployment slows down and I just want to speed it up.
Solo parenting can be difficult. Have a cereal night when you need to.
There are so many times when military life doesn’t make sense. That is just how it works.
Exactly! We are not special. We have just grown stronger because we have had to.
I have done this so many times. I know I should park in the same place every time but I don’t.
This is the most important thing to remember while you are a military spouse. Sometimes the military does have to come first. That can be hard to accept but it is better if you do. Remember, your service member loves you and misses you as much as you miss him.
