And I Thought I Had a Tough Life.
I was listening to the Dr. Joy Brown radio show last night (11/01/05). A woman called in, she is twenty-three. She is married. Hubby is thirty years old. She had a baby three months ago.
So far does not sound all that bad, right? Now we will add in the good stuff.
They are both in the military. They are based in Texas. The baby is currently in Arizona living with her Mother-In-Law. She is calling to complain she is not getting enough sex from hubby.
She has not seen her baby in several weeks. She and hubby are scheduled to go spend Thanksgiving with his mom, and get to see their four month old baby.
Okay at this point it is wacky, but it gets worse. The reason the baby is staying with Grandma, is that at the end of November hubby is being shipped to Iraq. Still not all that unusual, except at this point you should know that the wife (and brand new mom) is being sent for a tour of duty in Korea at the end of November too.
Now that is a great advertisement of American Family Values?
