Episode 66- Listener Q & A

Milspouse Matters Episode 66

On this episode, I’m doing a listener Q & A!

Just a reminder, you can send questions to me on the Milspouse Matters Instagram or email me for possible inclusion in the next round of listener Q & A!

Today, we’re covering questions like: 

  • What are your thoughts on planning weddings in the military? Or just trying to plan anything as a milspouse with this unpredictable lifestyle? (or is it not really as unpredictable as it seems)

  • How and when should you apply for military base housing

  • Sometimes the areas of OPSEC and security measures seem to be approached differently by a lot of military spouse influencers. I guess I’m just wondering what good practices would be. Also, any suggestions for a wife who can’t really talk to her husband about work because he’s Intel?

  • Finding military spouse connections in Washington, D.C. 

  • Advice for making friends in big cities when you don’t live on base and aren’t established yet.

  • Tips on helping your marriage during a tough deployment

  • Homeschooling military kids.
