1. Spouses I know most people generally find their spouses or potential spouses during college or at the workplace. I've been kind of worried that if I join the military/attend a service academy, it would be difficult for me to find a spouse (fewer number of women, restriction of movement/freedom etc). If you dont meet your spouse at a service academy, how are the opportunities after you graduate? I always get this feeling that in the military, everything is tight-knit and closed off to civilian life. Is that true? As a cadet AS well as an active-duty officer, do you get many chances to meet/work with other civilians/regular college students? Or is everything you do almost strictly limited with military people? 2. I know there is another thread for this question, but I made another one because I still dont understand the concept of moving around. During your time in the army, what determines how often you move around? I remember reading posts about officers moving like 10+ times during their career and its not something that I find particularly appealing. Like, do you ever own a home? If you move around so much, where do you live? Is it possible to "go to work" like a regular civilian employee from a set location (your home)? Thanks!
