Army Wife Q&A

My husband being in the Canadian Forces is a large part of who we are as a family, and since I haven’t posted anything on here in FOREVER, I thought I’d start with the army wife q&a! Here goes –

  1. How did you and your spouse meet? We met when my family moved to NB, my parents bought the house behind his and so we initially met as neighbours.
  2. How old were you when you met? I was thirteen and he was sixteen.
  3. How long have you been together? Ten years! He told me he loved me on December 15th, 2007 and we have been together since.
  4. Where are you both originally from? He was born in Lahr, Germany and I was born in Halifax, NS. Both army brats, of course!
  5. How did you feel about him joining? We weren’t really very close when he initially joined/left for basic training. He was a trouble maker and I was going to steer clear of army guys (ha!).
  6. Where did he go to basic training? Quebec.
  7. Has your spouse ever deployed? Yes, twice. In 2012 and currently.
  8. Did he wear his uniform at your wedding? Heck. No. 🙅🏼‍♀️
  9. What is the best/worst part of military life? The best part is the opportunity to miss each other, and truly value each other in every way. We know what life is like when we aren’t together and it makes us work that much harder to preserve our marriage. The worst part is trying to explain to my toddler why she can’t have her Papa when she is crying for him..
  10. Do you own ‘army wife’ stuff? Not really.. I have a RCR pin and a mug that says f*ck deployment 😂
