POLL: How many were with their S/O before they became a Marine?

I was interested in how many people were already together before their partner decided to join the Marine Corps. I was with my husband beforehand so I have been with him for his entire journey.

My husband and I have known each other since I was 5:) 

Calimommy --- 6 years ago -

My husband was my first kiss in 5th grade, we were off and on since, married at 19.

That's awesome! Love to hear those types of stories. 

beezymamabee --- 6 years ago -

we were together for 4 years before he enlisted. and married for a year.l before bootcamp. 

JillO --- 6 years ago -

I met & married my husband when he had already been in for a little over 2 years. 

ImthaBOMBlikeTICKTICK --- 6 years ago -

We are from a small town right next to temecula so everyone knew everyone and we never lost contact. When I finally turned 18 he flew me to HI for a graduation trip (he was stationed there) and I never came bk home.lol 

shesfromthevalley --- 6 years ago -

Nope, we met because of the marine corps. He's from a small town in Georgia and I'm from about two hours north of here. 

Maureen --- 6 years ago -

Together yes, but not married 

Incogneat o --- 6 years ago -

We've been together since we were 15 & 16 years old. Got married 3 years later, then a year & a half after that he joined the Marines. We've been together for 9 years now :-) 

Apocalypse --- 6 years ago -

We had already been together almost 3 years and had a 6 month old daughter when he joined. 

ChefsDoItBetter3 --- 6 years ago -

My husband and I were only together for 4 months before bootcamp; before that we had been friends for 3 years. We got engaged after he hit the fleet and got married 2 months after. We are about to celebrate our 2 year anniversary of marraige on 12.31.11 :) 

USMCFunSize --- 6 years ago -

We had been together for three years before he became a Marine :) I have to say I am SO happy I got my time with him all to myself before the MC! 

LauraLee --- 6 years ago -

Nope...we were both active duty when we met. 

DocsWife --- 6 years ago -

Well my husband isn't in the MC so I substituted Navy in. I have known him since 9 th grade and we were dating for a year before he enlisted. We married about 3 months after he joined (aka a month after bc graduation). 

gorgeousll19 --- 6 years ago -

I've known my husband since elementary and we started dating my soph yr in h.s.
He joined when I was a senior. 

picsphotography --- 6 years ago -

We were dating for 2 years before he joined, got married a year after he was in. 

Blue fuzzy creature --- 6 years ago -

Nope...we were both active duty when we met.


Me too 

Special K --- 6 years ago -

We started dating when we were 17 during junior year of high school, and got married when we were 19, a little over a year after he enlisted. 

B*Bright --- 6 years ago -

well, mine was a bit of both....My husband HAD been enlisted before we met. He did 4 years and got out. Then we met and while we were in the process of dating, he was in the process of enlisting again..... 

Heathery with Iconic Images --- 6 years ago -

We were married for 4 years before my husband enlisted. The economy tanked, our business started to go under and there were not many job opportunities in our town that would support our family… so he joined. I was not happy about it, but once I saw him in his uniform, and saw his new found confidence, I quickly changed my mind.

We're celebrating 8 years of marriage in a few weeks… there are times I get super frustrated with the Marine CORPS, but 92% of the time, it's a blessing. We're given so many opportunities. We lived and struggled in the "real world" and that has made me so thankful for the sacrifices my husband has made to provide for our family! 

SecretSquirrel --- 6 years ago -

We had been dating for 2 years and 3 months and engaged when he left for bootcamp. We've been together for 13 years, 3 months now. 

holly --- 6 years ago -

met my husband while he just got out of bootcamp when he was home on his leave and a couple months later drove to california and got married on the way and have been married for 4yrs now lol 

Poe --- 6 years ago -

I married for benefits therefore I wouldn't have picked him if he wasn't already in. 

ChefsDoItBetter3 --- 6 years ago -

I married for benefits therefore I wouldn't have picked him if he wasn't already in. 

I hope this is sarcasm LOL 

vw09 --- 6 years ago -

I met mine after he was in. I don't think we would've met if it wasn't that way since I was in Hawaii for college and he was stationed there. 

JediMommy --- 6 years ago -

I met my husband the day after he graduated from Boot camp and we got married 2 years to the day that he enlisted lol 

kristin40 --- 6 years ago -

My husband had been in for 8 years when we met. 

laneys mommy --- 6 years ago -

Mine was on his third duty station and had some time behind him when we met. I'm kind of glad I missed the early days. Really glad I missed Okinawa. At least we hope he doesn't have to go back. 

AnonymousWife --- 6 years ago -

I saw hubby a few weeks before he left for boot camp, I say saw, because we were never introduced. He went to boot camp, came home, were were introduced, and then we got married. That was 20 years ago. :)
