You Know You’re a Military Spouse When….
-Someone asks when your Spouse will be home, you say July or August instead of 5 or 6pm.
-You live on your own and by yourself more after you’re married than before you were married.
-You know all of your Spouse’s co-workers by their last name…and rarely know their first name.
-You say “I’m going to the commissary” instead of “grocery store”.
… … -You need your I.D to buy groceries.
-You really want something but you say , well I’m going to have to wait for the 1st or 15th for it “.
-Half of your wardrobe has some kind of Military insignia on it and once belonged to your Spouse.
-The sounds of helicopters, and Jets flying over your house shaking your windows, surprisingly soothes you!
-Your Spouse’s work and dress clothes cost more than yours do.
-You only write in pencil because EVERYTHING is subject to change.
-You know that a 2 month separation IS short, no matter what your civilian friends say.
-You know better than to go to the commissary between 11:30 and 1:30 or on a payday unless it’s a life or death emergency.
-You know that any reference to “sand box” describes a deployment, not your kid’s backyard toys.
-You don’t have to think about what time 21:30 is.
-You pick apart uniforms on TV and in the movies for being inaccurate with your Spouse.
-You are asked to stop talking in acronyms and translate it all to English
-When your Spouse says they get to “Sleep In” and is referring to 0630
