just a friendly reminder.
So today I had to fill out paperwork for the Air Force. It was paper work saying that I would be responsible for S if something happens and the wife is deployed or detained for a long period of time. Now I understand that this is a safe guard for the unmarried solider and the child in question. However it just makes me mad that the wife and I consider ourselves married we consider S to be our but we are not, and he isn't mine. It makes me a bit sad to have to sign a paper that say I will care for my son until permanent custody can be established. I know that this is not anything that the wife has asked for. It is just one more way we are reminded that we are not treated equal. I do know that I am still super proud of the wife. I don't know if I would be able to serve in an organization that didn't like me for who I am. I do know that I will support her because this is what she wants to do. It was what she would still be doing if she hadn't gotten pregnant with S. It is who she is and it is the person I fell in love with. Besides she looks great in cammies.
