You will move a lot, potentially in far flung places around the world. 5) If you have a very defined career path that requires a specific location & number of years spent in one place a military partnership will make that very difficult. If you want a big career that demands you live in a particular area, or long years in one place, don't date people in the service.
Do not expect they can do that for you and do not make them feel guilty that they should.
This is a given in the military and other professions like medical, fire and law enforcement.
