Little Soldiers

From Jake: Jen wants like seven kids when I'm out of the military. But two will do for me. I want a little soldier of my own one day. She works just as hard as I do now- so we know we have enough money to move back to Cleveland in 3 years and be able to buy a house and make a family. In high school I told her that I want to grow old with her and watch our grandchildren play on the porch. So I will give her just that.

Jake, Jen your show was awsome! But on tv, you didn't show when you guys got back together. And I want to know who called you at the end of the show.

I married a soldier young who is now in Iraq for a year. I have to say its much harder than I thought it would be, but it goes by quickly. My dad always tells me that if we can make it through this than everything thing else will be easy in all relativity. Feel free to contact me if you ever need any support, I know how it feels to think you're all alone. Its always nice though to know there are other people out there in similar situations. Take care!

Its gonna be hard for you two but just keep trying. Im not in the army or anything but im a firefighter in the Air Force..and although we don't get deployed as long as you Army guys we are living at the station most of the time, but as long as when you are home you make the best of it you two should be ok and have a great fam. Goodluck in the Army Bro.

Thanks for the support everyone. I love being married. It
gives me someone to come home to, someone to care
about and something to look forward to. There ain't
nothing like having a partner in crime on my side all
the time. And oh yea... sex life doesn't die when you
get married. It gets better!!

Hey,

Jen, I really know how you feel. I am not even married yet, but my bf is currently in Iraq. We have been together for over a yr. now and it is so hard on the both of us because we just want to be together. He will be over there now for almost 7 months. I have been through his last deployment also. So seeing as I know how hard it is not even married yet, I wish you two the best of luck.

you guys will have the cutest kids ever...jenn if it's true about the whole seven kids thing...try babysitting that many then you'll see. I like how everyone says 'oh they're too young and immature it won't last'. you guys are planning your futures by when to buy the house, where to live, future careers and children...that shows maturity to me. Most people that age just want to party and get wasted...you guys have dreams. Best of luck to you both.

Jenn, good luck girl! I am currently 18 and an Army Wife, it's the hardest job a woman could do for the man she loves. It's totally worth it, every fight, every night alone, every tear is all worth it for them. Stay strong.

"...cause with you, I'd withstand hell just to hold your hand..."

Jake, love your wife every second that you around her because you know, more than most men, that time is precious. Appreciate her, and all the sacrifices she has and will make for you.

Congrats to both of you, and GOOD LUCK!

hey , i just saw your episode! you guys are so cute.. jen i have some advise for u! my husband was severly injured in iraq! i almost lost him on 12-9-05. hes doing great now.. but my advise to u is.. dont read the paper or the news you will only make your self sick and worry. just live everyday wishing for the best! Steves first tour over there i watched the news everyday and made my self sick with worry.. his second time out i just lived my life no news internet clips or the paper, i didnt make it worse for myself, i just hoped for the best! and i still got that phone call,, it hurt just as much! just always be loving and support him,, when hes out there even if your dying inside be strong for him! if you need to vent call a friend he needs to be completly focused on whats going on out there and getting home to u safe! good luck guys ! love shelly

My husband was in the Navy ,but hes out now. We have no kids. We lived in Jacksonville,NC(Camp Lejuene) for 4 years. I think thats the smartest decision not to have kids right now. Not that its not wrong its just wait til you get your careers together and enjoy being together. Who says its a law to get married and have kids right away. I just want to say good luck and Congrats!!

Jen I understand you not wanting to talk about Iraq I didnt want to either, my BF has been there for a year, and has 2 more to go over there..He is also in the Army, I will tell you this, Talking about it with someone who loves you or understands will be the best thing you could do to help yourself be strong, its hard very hard but by the grace of God me and my BF will be in your boat getting married to..
So God Bless and thank you for your service!!!
Hang in there Jenn

Jenn, is it hard to get married to a solider so young? I am 18 and engaged to a marine. I am a little nervous but also excited... Good luck to the both of you.

Congradulations!! I have a couple things to say. You all will make amazing parents. I agree with Jake, 2 or 3 kids is enough. Trust me, my aunt has seven kids and it is a mad house. L.O.L. Also, you all are so lucky to have each other. Jake, thanks for supporting our army. Jen, don't worry too hard while Jake is away. My family friend, Christina, is in the navy and going to Iraq. Just pray. Good luck!!

Hi Jake and Jen congratulations on getting married I wish you both all the best. I recently watched your episode with my daughter and you two reminded me alot of my wife and I. We were high school sweethearts and got married when we were nineteen too. I went in the Navy the summer after our graduation and was away from Steph for a year and half before we got married. Of course there was the ocassional leave so that made things not quite as bad. Steph moved out to Alameda Ca. when my ship transferred to the westcoast. Thats when the long separations began Steph also started school and threw herself into work and it seemed to help her, also talking to other women who were in the same position helped. During my four years of service in the Navy and through Desert Storm we were apart for three years and one month out of four years. I guess what Im trying to say to you Jen is "you and Jake are going to be just fine" just keep on believing in one another and loving one another you will get through this test in your life. My wife and I are proof because were still together and we love each other more than we did when we first got married. I wish the same happiness for the both of you. Jake stay safe over in the sandbox and keep your eyes open and your head down and come home safe you and Jen will be in my prayers.

Jen, I got married at 18. My husband is a Marine so watching your episode on MTV was like watching all my stress and planning all over again. I had such a hard time getting it all together. Oh and I totally know how you feel about Jake wanting to spend all his leave with his family. That was really hard for me at first. But now living away from family and only being able to see them when he gets leave, I totally understand how he felt. Umm.. what else was i going to say.. oh.. seven kids?? hee hee.. I want six! :) haha I guess us military wives think alike huh! congrats.. ya'll look super happy together!

Jake, thanks for all you do in the military. I am a military wife and I am completely supportive of you. Congrats on the wedding.. and give jen her 7 kids! :)

jen, just want to say that i loved the show. you remind me of myself, im 20 and im married to a soldier. were stationed here in el paso texas. it is hard to be married to someone in the army.My advice to you would be to never let a day go by without showing your husband how much you love him.vice versa jake.good luck and congrats on your marriage. Jenny A.

I give you two props on your marriage. A military marriage isn't for everyone. As long you both continue to work on your relationship and understand that it's difficult when your partner isn't around 24/7. I have a brother and sister in-law that are going thru just that. I couldn't imagine myself going thru a pregnancy or raising a child alone while my spouse was over seas. Again, it's not for everyone.

Congrats to you both! I'm also an army wife. My husband is currently serving on an extended tour in Iraq. We've got two kids so its pretty easy to keep busy. My advice to you is to do just that. Keep your schedule full and it will pass the time quick!Also, remember to always say how much you love them. You can never say it to much! I wish you both the best of luck and a safe return home to Jake!

Congrats you guys! Being a military wife is hard but so worth it! We are also very young, I was 18 and my husband was 19 when we married. About 4 months later we had our lil girl! Then about 3 months after that he left for Iraq. He returned a lil over a year later. Things were hard while he was gone but we did everything possible to communicate everyday. He's been home now for about a year and a half and our 3 year anniversary is soon and we are trying for baby #2!! At times it'll seem impossible but believe me it is all worth it when he comes back to you!
