Long distance relationships in the navy

I know some people will probably be thinking that it is not a good idea and I probably should not keep the relationship going once in the Navy, but thats not going to happen so... Has anyone experience is this situation? I know we get like 6 weeks paid leave each year, but how about weekends or long weekends where you can go home? Are there many chances for this?

Any other advice/info appreciated, cheers./

Actually, once you join the navy you're not allowed to leave your ship except on main leave periods. No chance of forming a relationship with anyone who's not serving on your ship.

Why do you think the navy is referred to as rum, bum and baccy? The problem is they've stopped the tot and you're not permitted to smoke onboard anymore. Why do you think they've let wrens go to sea?

Christ the site's turned into a "Dear Diedre".

FFS, Having a relationship in the RN is no diferent. All women are snakes with tits", (Waits for the incoming). :lol: Treat delicately and they'll still be there when you get back, if not you've dropped a bollock somewhere.

For info I have never worked in a welfare role, you may be able to tell!!!!! :lol:

Joking aside. Any relationship is all about trust. If you can't trust a partner then bin them. Only end in tears as they say.

Myself, married 35+ years, all but the last 16 in the mob. Again trust!!!!
 
Shouldn't be a problem. I've known people in the RN who have managed to maintain extremely faithful relationships throughout long periods of separation; sometimes up to a dozen at a time.

Its not so much the trust factor and worrying about cheating, more about getting to see her ect.

When not at sea you could go home on weekends right?

This question really just comes down to what you want in life mate.

If its her then maybe look into the RNR/RMR/TA. If its RN then if she sticks around, bonus (or not). If you don't work out once you are in then move on.

You may also find it "hard" if your mates are having fun on a run ashore whilst you are thinking of your girlfriend.

I used to work for a chief who had convinced his Mrs(who lived up the line) that he was duty every other weekend. This allowed him to spend quality time with his guzz "aunty" :D
