  • I know that 7 months sounds like forever, especially when you're 15, but in this instance, for the sake of your family, it appears that you have no choice but to obey the law as it is written until your birthday.

  • Well he still can claim his child as a dependant(required) and depending on his job his training could last anywhere from 3-6 months. He'll then get his permenant station and you'l only have to wait 1-4 months to be together. The only other thing I can think to suggest is to get emancipated. I THINK all rules and regulations are moot if you are considered an adult in the eyes of the law regardless of age. Better check that out though.

  • I can't believe there isn't something grandfathered in if you guys already have a child!

  • I agree with Laura- he can still support his child while he is away and when he comes back. When my brother-in-law went to National Guarding training, he was gone for 9/10 months - 3 months of boot camp and then straight ti AIT school.

    Depending on what your laws are in your state, if when he gets back you are still not legally allowed to be together, he should still be able (and allowed) to support his child, see his child, and be a friend to you and your family. You can concentrate on your studies so you can also one day provide for your child and learning to be a mom and enjoy watching your baby learn & grow and do amazing things.
