Getting married


#1

I’ll be getting married a week from today. Nothing big, just a quickie court deal so Uncle Sam will pay me more (not the only reason, but it is a good one). I didn’t realize it was so damn expensive at the court $93.50 for the license, $30.00 more to have the ceremony there…damn!

haha, funny/fairly long story, here goes: We met 8 or 9 years ago in 7th grade. We were real good friends til after 10th grade and I had to move 4 hours south. We fell out of touch, then I went to bootcamp. My mom got into my email and sent a message to everyone in my address book to write me, and she did. We talked about 3 times in the next year, then when I was in Japan we started emailing/IM’ing constantly. I stopped to see her for a few days on my way to VA, and now I make the 10 hr drive down at least once a month. We’ve been engaged for 2 months or so and have decided why wait to get married.

Marriage is nothing to me, which is why I’m getting married in a few weeks for that exact reason- More money. I’ve known the guy for 4 months, and we’re like best friends already, but we’re only getting married to help each other out financially, and so that I can get the awesome military benefits. Luckily, we were both going to Ft. Hood in March anyway, so we’re just getting a 2 bedroom house there, and living like roommates. It will be a very open marriage, and we will be dating other people, but it’s nice to know someone who thinks the same way I do about the whole ordeal.

Central Texas. About an hour north of Austin, and about 2 hours south of DFW. Never lived in a place so big, so I’m excited.

Haha, yeah. She lives in FL and I’m stationed in VA, so driving down every month is getting damn expensive. Plus this way when I get out (July 07) and we start living together, we can have a little bit saved up, which wouldn’t happen at the rate we’re going right now. We know we would get married then anyway, so why wait?

Congratulations and lots of happiness for you both :slight_smile:

Don’t give a damn about money, it’s replacable. The joy on your bride’s face the day of the wedding is well worth it.
