You Might be Marine Wife If

1. Your mail goes to four addresses in two countries before it reaches you.

2. You earned an Accounting degree by deciphering your husband's LES and running a family on what was ACTUALLY deposited.

3. "Savings" sounds like a great idea and you hope to someday have some.

4. Sex - see #3.

5. You can simultaneously be a control freak, change plans on a moment's notice, yet you are not being treated for schizophrenia.

6. You know the Tricare regulations/procedures better than their service reps.

7. You know what forms you need better than your husband's Admin clerk.

8. You are strangely attracted (or repulsed) by the color green.

9. You can calculate the cost of a 5-minute phone call from any country, any time, on up to four different calling plans.

10. At a distance, you can pick out your husband from 100 other men with identical haircuts and clothes.

11. The face paint in your closet is NOT for your children.

12. Name tapes are not just for kids.

As a marine I find this offensive and not funny at all.

Fyr - Welcome! Good to go.

Anonymous - Nothing wrong with a little chuckle. We're sorry you found this offensive. Military wives seemed to find it quite humorous as this was sent in to us by a military wife.
