Hi Everyone, I really enjoy learning about RM history and will one day definitely attempt to join, either in reserve or regular service. I just had some questions that I don't think anyone else has brought to attention. For a full time regular Royal Marines Officer, would it be possible to have a good family life, as I understand you are away much of the time? I say this because of the expectations of my culture and family, I will be married young(22) and will probably have kids shortly after that. Realistically would it be possible for me to be a regular without neglecting my wife and family, who would probably stay in London during my training and service? Any replies would be greatly appreciated, I hope you are understanding of my situation, I cannot go solo per say during my early life because it would make my family discontent with me.
