Fleet Marine Life #15 – Long Distance

The military has an abnormally high divorce rate. I don’t need to read any newspaper or turn on the TV to see it. It’s happening all around me. It’s sad but it’s true. Military life is tough on marriages. Very tough. I don’t recommend marriage to anyone in the military. I especially don’t recommend having kids either because that will just drive you crazy.

If you are married in the military then you know what I’m talking about. If you are planning on getting married so that you can move out of the barracks, please don’t. It’s not worth it. Get married outside the Marine Corps like normal people.

Anyways, out in Okinawa, Japan, many people lost their girlfriends because they just grew lonely. It ain’t nothing to cry over because she wasn’t the one. Just move on and meet other fish. If you’re a male, just don’t go on craigslist or else you’ll end up with:

1. a female who weighs 2-3 times your weight
2. a female who is really old
3. a female who is really a man.
4. AIDS.

There’s a right way to do everything and a wrong way. Unfortunately, many Marines just keep doing the wrong thing until it ends up right. Or not?

Getting married to move out of the barracks since 1775.

    Your a fricken asshole! Who contributes to a website called ihatetheusmc.com? Do you know how many sacrifices and hardships the USMC has put up with so you can sit on your sorry fat ass and banter on about how the USMC and military in general ruin relationships and all the other bull **** you probably have said about them? Now I know that you’re probably not going to read this comment written by a 16 year old guy, but that’s beside the point. I’m a 16 year old AMERICAN boy, proud of it too. And like me you are probably American too since you are talking about The USMC, so why don’t you have a little fucking respect for the sacrifices they make for you so you can be safe here in the United States and talk shit about them you ungrateful piece of shit.

    God Bless America.


      Wow… where do I start… first of all, almost every single person who contributes to this site are Active Duty or Reserve marines, or marine vets. So how dare we talk shit on the marine corps? Because we’ve lived it, and we know what it’s all about. Frankly, I can tell you with absolute certainty, that you’re not proud of the marine corps, you’re proud of some idealized version of what you wish the marine corps was.

      So instead of coming here and trying to talk down to us, how about you pull out a pen and paper and take some notes from people who actually know what they’re talking about.

      Safety and Peace
