If he is in a place of safety then the only worry is the time spent in separation.
thank you, that is my main worry. army is not a place you can walk out from like you would walk out from any other job. its a huge responsibility. it wouldnt've made any difference if we tried to pay for it together, we'd still be paying today anyway cos we've only been a couple for 2 yrs and you dont just ask your new girlfriend: hey, can you help me pay for my car cos i wanna get out from the army? if you wanna quit from the army you still have to work for an year after you hand them your notice. they could be cheeky and send him on a tour for 12 months if they wanted.
It was stated he was volunteering for this.
if he volunteers now and goes again next year, he will have enough money to leave in 2010. if he refuses to go now, he will go every year until he quits. all he needs is the money. he's not doing it cos he loves war. he is too proud to take any money from me. i did offer. end of, leave this thread seanbm.
