Well looks like my life as a military wife ended before it even began. As soon as he's actually home/in my arms, I'll be leaving the group. He's being discharged as soon as they get his medical records due to MAJOR health problems. I'm not going to go into the details but he should be home shortly after the first of the year. Thank you all for your reassurance, advice, and for talking to me in general.

The member's cut is done.

If you were removed it was either because you were not active in our community and/or your own personal journal. I'm not talking about not updating for a few weeks. I'm talking about not updating for months. I do realize that there are some people that only comment and rarely update in their own journal which is why I'm allowing you to rejoin if that's the case.

If you were cut and would still like to be a member, please feel free to comment here and let us know.

Thanks!

Inspired by a recent comment:

How many of your husbands got married in uniform? My husband wanted the army to have absolutely nothing to do with our wedding - other than us inviting his SGM and a couple of other people. We're an unusual couple though who doesn't tend to follow tradition, the norm, the stereotypes, etc. So just curious, did you or didn't you?

Wasssssaaaaaaaahhhhhh, gals.

I just had a question about apartment leases while being married to the deployed. Not all of the deployed, mind you.

Backstory:

1.I moved into an apartment complex while we were dating.
2.We got married.
3.He had to deploy 4 days later (yes, we were not prepared for that)
4.I wanted to get out of my lease (just had moved from a house to save money but dogs didn't have enough room, apartments suck in general IMO, etc).
5.I ask the office manager about filling out an application for my husband and she said, "We may or may not add him because he's stationed in Ft. Bragg which is 2 hours away and he can't live at two places at once." So I said, "Well, JAG knows better than me and he's got an appointment with them next week but I'll have him ask them about that."
6.JAG says it's no problem. So I fill out an application and pay the app fee.
7.Didn't hear anything from the apartment complex. Called to check on the application and was told the office Manager, Kristy, would call.
8.I stopped by the office 6-8 times, called about the same amount. Same thing. Kristy will get back to you. This goes on for 6 weeks.
9.Last Friday I get the name of Kristy's supervisor and call. Explain the story. She says she'll have Kristy call me.
10.Kristy calls later that day and says, "We can't allow him to be on the lease because he's deployed. It's our policy not to allow someone on the lease if they aren't living there." I ask her why it's taken 6 weeks to tell me this. She said she called the day I turned in the application but if she did, she didn't leave a message. Besides, I turned it in on a Saturday, when she wasn't working. So they took his application and my application fee knowing he was deployed. Then denied it because he's deployed.


PRESENT DAY:

I get the number of the company that owns this apartment complex and my husband calls from Kuwait. He speaks with the district manager and directly asks her, "Am I not allowed to be on the lease because I'm deployed?" She plainly states, "No, you're married. There's no reason why you couldn't be. I'll have the regional manager call you or your wife tomorrow."

I can't even begin to tell you how happy this makes me that this shizzle sucker, Kristy, might be in for a surprise when I tell her that one of her highest bosses have completely contradicted what she has said.

My question is this:

Have you guys been in this situation? Has the landlord let you add your deployed husband to the lease? Does anyone know if typically they can be added? Are these office woman just being douches? Also, anyone want to take a stab at the chances that the regional manager will concur with the district manager which means since the DM said it's okay, the RM will say it's okay, and the Kristy bitch and her good friend, the supervisor, will get my glorious triumphant stink eye? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Due to a lot of unnecessary drama with the community mil_wives, we will NOT be accepting any members from that community. We're sorry to have to do this but this community was made to provide our members with a drama free place to be able to say what they want without being afraid of being judged. If you're into that whole drama, personal attacking, and snarking thing, please by all means -- join their community! We will be checking each and every journal thoroughly to look for any signs of fakes. If you're denied, chances are you'll probably already know why. Please do not PM any of our maintainers or members to ask why you weren't accepted. Just accept it and be on your merry way. We don't want to hear "but you said anyone can join." Save it. Are you that stupid to think we're going to let you in? We've already let a few of the little sneaks in but that was our fault and it won't happen again. Not to mention, if you're lame enough to make a fake new journal just to try and get in, well...you're even more pathetic then we thought and you do belong to that community afterall. We hope you all understand! :)

If you would like to receive a Christmas card from me, please email me your address. My email address is: cutie2005872002@yahoo.com

Member app, intro! :) Collapse )

Now for questions:
1.) I know he has to keep his military bearing while in uniform, but when i see him get off the plane i'm going to be way excited since its been 6 months. Its ok to hug/kiss him, correct?

2.) What should i get him for christmas? I dont really think "regular" presents will benifit him much and he wont really be able to enjoy them since he's back to AIT Jan 2. Any gift suggestions? He probably doesnt really want anything anyway...
