Being in a military relationship is just different. Sometimes it’s a good different. Sometimes it’s a bad different. But most of the time, it’s just different. And there are certain things that every military relationship endures or experiences at one point or another. Here’s 15 of those moments — the good, the bad, and the hilarious:

1. When people say, “I don’t know how you do it” or “I could never date/marry someone in the military”
