She Said: The Military Wife-To-Be - Ariel
We keep in touch as much as we can on Skype, even with the time difference between us is a vast 7 hours. Since we have tons in common, we talk about what new comics are coming out, what conventions we want to visit, even what statues we want! It's something we look forward to when he returns, and a hobby that fills us both with joy and love for each other.
I trust his judgment just as much as he trusts mine, and he lets me know this whenever we talk, which is reassuring. He makes me feel like he's not even gone sometimes; I catch myself calling out to him sometimes, and then having a giggle. Call me cheesy, but he's my soulmate - we click on such a level it's unreal, and the comfort I feel just thinking about him keeps me strong and hopeful.
I'm not saying we don't have our moments of fussing; what couple doesn't? But the thing is we'd never sleep on those leftover emotions. We hash it out, whether we're 2 feet or 2 light-years away. We love each other strongly and passionately, and that's what keeps us both going in the long run.
I'm happy to be marrying him, and I'm ecstatic that he'll have me as his wife. I'm a lucky lady, and I hope that I can give him the world he deserves - and then some. He's a dream come true: he's accepting, open-minded, and golden hearted, and I'm just glad he chose me to share this journey with.
He Said: The Military Husband-To-Be - Nelson
We live together, so I'm used to being around her all the time, and doing things together. When we are away from each other, we stay in touch as much as we can, whether by phone and/or laptop. I tell her how I'm doing, we talk about some of the things I do during the day or night, and things we want to do when I return. She does the same with me - how she's doing, what she's up to, and when she might be able to call me back.
I trust her, and I know she's a very responsible person, so I don't get too stressed out as far as worrying if she'd do anything bad. There are times we might disagree on certain things, but we always talk it through and move on. We love and care for each other a lot, so we never allow ourselves to get too angry about anything, or do anything that would cause us to drift apart. No matter how bad a discussion we have, we can never hang up on each other or hang up on a bad note without solving the issue.
We have a lot in common, so we are always talking about things we want to do, or places we want to go. She's really good to me, and I know I'd never find another person that could be anything like her, in every way she is: loving, caring, funny, and very creative. Just knowing she’s in my life, keeps me thinking positively, and motivates me to get through work and come back home.
