Advise to the 'Army Wives"

For those of you who aren't up on your Lifetime TV, "Army Wives" is a new series about Army spouses (all but one of them women). They get together when one of them goes into labor at an official tea...

For those of you who don't know me IRL, you should know that hubby was in the military when we got married and stayed in the military for about 10 years after we married... so, I have some experience as an army wife...

One of the characters is new to Army life, so I thought she could use a bit of advise... I figured I'd post it here because it is also generally good life and marriage advise...

In no particular order...

---Don't iron his shirts... really, don't do it even once.
--- Mind your own business.
--- Don't do anything you wouldn't want everyone to know about.
--- Don't gossip.
--- Choose your friends wisely and stick with them.
--- His rank isn't your rank, be an independent person and have your own achievements.
--- His job isn't your job, get your own job off base, waaay off base.
--- Learn what the alphabet soup means.
--- Have something to talk about outside of the military.
