An Update From Jen

My girlfriends came down to Hawaii for their spring break. They have been here for the past week and it has been amazing. Going out acting like a teen again really made me think a lot about college life.

Jake and I were talking about everything the other day and we got on the college subject. I was telling him how I still kind of wish that I had a chance to dorm at college, but when I think about what me and him have- I rethink that. I am so glad to have Jake because I try to think of where and what I would be doing right now in Ohio...and no good thoughts come to mind! Jake really put my life on track and put a good head on my shoulders. He reminds me all the time of all the potential I have and it feels good to have someone like that around all the time. We have a very strong relationship together and are really looking forward to the rest of our lives together!

You guys were my all time favorite couple. You express and seem like one of the realist underaged couples on the show yet. Iam currently engaged to a marine and plan on getting married sometime in august about 2-3 week before he leaves to go to Iraq for 6-7 months. Seeing your episode really helped me to know that it can be done when there is enough love. Thankyou so much for appearing! I love you guys and wish you the best of luck and all the happiness!

Jen,

It's nice to see another young bride from Ohio! I don't live all that far from Cleveland. I'm glad to hear that things are going well with you and Jake. What church did you guys get married in?

Hi, My name is Mary and I'm 22. I'm kind of in the same position as Jean because my boyfriend is in the military and he was told that he's going to be send to Iraq. I really wouldn't want that to happen, but if it's in his future i'm going to be right behind him to support him.

On the other hand i'm not sure what step i should do before he goes to Iraq, if i should get married before or not?, what's your advice?

Thanks alot
and the best of luck.

hey Jen! well, i just wanted to write and say that you and Jake's show was my favorite. I'm datin' a staff sargeant in the army, he's a morterman, and i can relate completely. only difference is that we've had to do the long distance thing for over a year and a half now! congrats to you and jake for gettin' thru everythin' you have. i know how tough it can be. and believe me.. my soldier isn't even gettin' a bachelor party. so i would've fibbed a lil' too! :) goodluck in years to come!

I TOO HAVE GONE BACK TO SCHOOL AND AM TRYING TO JUGGLE A FAMILY AND HUSBAND. IT IS HARD BUT I'M SURE IN THE END IT WILL ALL BE WORTH IT. I WAS MARRIED AT 19 AND PREGNANT AT THE TIME. I GAVE UP COLLEGE FOR A WHILE I AM 21 AND AM HAPPY WE CAN AFFORD IT NOW. JUST STAY STRONG AND EVERYTHING WILL WORK OUT. IN EVERY RELATIONSHIP THERE ARE UPS AND DOWNS TRUST ME I KNOW BUT BEING AWAY FROM EACHOTHER WILL ONLY BE A TEST OF HOW STRONG YOUR LOVE FOR EACHOTHER REALLY IS.

Jen, I really hope that you do go to college. Take that as some free advice from someone who's been there and NOT done that. My husband and I were married when I was 18 (that was almost 12 yrs ago!! :) ) he wnlisted in the Army and stayed there for quite awhile. I always said I wanted to go to school but we had kids and w/ each kid and move it got harder and harder to accomplish that. So do it, however, moving to the dorms would not be a good idea if you'd like to stay married. Seriously, that would not work. Enjoy each other and be proud to be an Army wife, grow up w/ each other, build your trust and stay strong as MANY things will happen to you in this lifetime (good and bad) but that's part of growing up and making it YOUR life..not someone else's cookie cutter ideas! Best wishes!!! I truly hope he comes home safe, I'd think again about him getting out and going back to Ohio. There's better opportunities in the Army or after he's been in for awhile. Good luck to both of you!!

Congrats on the marriage I just got married on Oct 12 2006 to a military man to he is in the Airforce. He is in Italy and I am about to go once school is over. Just remember to always treat him like he might not be there cause if ya'll fight and something happened then it will haunt you. Love each other like its ya'lls last day. Once again congrats

Congrats on your new life together, I hope that each day is blessed. My husband (who was a Marine) and I were married when we were just 18yrs old and now 16 years later and 2 wonderful children we survived! We are proof that it can work. Hang tight to each other.

Hey. I just wanted to say I loved your show. I am 20 and got married when I was 19. My husband is 22 now. We have 1 child. He is in the Navy. He just got back from Bahrain in November and now is leaving for Japan soon. So big ups to all of us military wifes.
Congrats to you two. And good luck!

I know what it's like being married to an Army guy. Mine is on his third tour in Iraq, and actually missed the birth of our son by 4 days because of his deployment. We were married young, I was 19 and he was 22, that was 3 years ago and we're still kicking ass. I wish you both the best, and from one Army wife to another....I know what it's like to be lonely.

You can still go to college and take classes at a community college or something. :) That's what I do and I love school!
My friend Sarah has a husband in the Navy who is gone a lot, so I know from her what you must be going through..it's rough but you two can get through it! Best of luck guys!!

Hey. I just got finished watching yours and jakes wedding on MTV. I am married to a man that is in the Army. I know that it can be stressful. But I will also be the first to tell you that if you don't give your new husband the support that he needs in his career it will be harder on both of you. I support my husband 110% in his career being in the Army and being a police officer. So please let Jake know that you support him in everything that he does. And try not to nag him about every little thing. Good luck and best wishes to you and Jake.

Hey Jen! My name is Amanda and I am a USMC wife...stationed at Kaneohe Bay, HI!! He's currently on deployment to Iraq, coming home in just a few weeks! We got married when we were both really young too...I was 18, he was 20. We've been through 2 deployments already, and it only made our relationship stronger. Hang in there, it will all work out. I wish you both the best of luck...and who knows, maybe I will run into you on the island someday!

Jen,

When I met and married my husband 6 years ago he was active duty air force and was actually active duty on 9-11-01. There was nothing more horrifying. He has been out of the military for 5 years and has now joined the National Guard. I know what you are going through as a military spouse and please know that you have all the strength you need even if you haven't found it yet. Take pride in what your husband does and know that there are others of us out there that fear everyday that our husband's could be deployed and may not return home. Other women get to lie in the arms of their husband's at night because of what ours do. Have faith and remember that the military wife community is close knit and you can always find support in that!!

Hey, I got married to my high school sweetheart, we were both 19. We got married right as he graduated airborne school and he is also infantry in the Army. Now we are both 25, have 2 boys 3 and 1, and could not be happier. He is now a SSG and a Drill Sgt. Partly to stay home awhile, he has been deployed 2 times. It is hard but you can make it through. The first time we had no kids, and the second time I was pregnant for the first time. Just stay strong and dont worry him unless you have to, because you can cry to your family, your soldier cant be worrying about you being upset while he is watching out for his wife. That is the best wife a military wife can get. Stay Strong and walk proud!

Hey Jen,
I love watching this episode of you and Jake. I am 18 and so is my boyfriend he is in the Air Force and will soon be leaving tech school in about three weeks and is stationed in Moody AFB, GA. I'm in my freshman year in college at PSU..and we've been together since freshman year of highschool. We are talking about getting married, i'm a little weak to tell the parents, but I'm hopeing it will be fine. Anyways everytime I watch this episode I want to get married more and more. He as well, most likely, will be heading for Iraq soon..
:-/..Well I hope all is well, and Congrats and Goodluck to you both Jen & Jake.

Hey, I need some advice. I've been with my boyfriend all through highschool and he graduates this year and I have a year left. He enlisted in the Air Force this summer and he wants us to live together when I graduate while going to college. The problem is, is my parents wouldn't help me if I did that. You and Jake stood out the most for me because you relate to me the most. What is your advice?

I just wanted to you congrats! I got married to a soldier two years ago, and he just got back from a 16 month tour in Iraq, so I definately know what you're going through! I just wanted to tell you that it'll be over quick, although it wont feel that way in the beginning, just keep yourself busy and hopefully nothing will happen to Jake, good luck with everything!

Hey!!
Congrats on everything, hope everything is working out. I was watching your show I seen that you are scared about him leaving. Im 18 years old and my husband and I got married when I was 17. He is in the army and about 2 months after we got married he had to leave for Iraq. Its very hard to deal with the fact that I cant see him every day and I thought that it was gonna be just horrible while he was gone, but he calls almost everyday and that makes it so much easier. Since he has been gone the time has just been flying by, just stay busy while is is gone and it will go by fast.Well I just thought that I would write you and tell yall congrats and that you guys can make it through this.
Stay Strong Girl!!

first off congrats. u guyz remind me of me and my husband. we alwayz fight about the dumbest things then laugh about it afterwards. he's in the military also, (army) and we got married early too because he was leaving for iraq. i'm from hawaii so the adjustment isn't really that hard for me because i have my family and friends but it doesn't compare to having him home. i try to keep myself busy with school. maybe u could just take a couple classes. makes the time fly by a little easier. well i wish u and yours the best.

Hi Jen & Jake,
I watchd your wedding and thought you both looked great. I married my husband when he was in the army and traveled from N.J. to Kansas and then to Germany with him. When I first got there he had to go on a manuver for on month. That was rough. We both feel that by being alone without family we feel that it made us closer. We'll be married 50 years in July.
Best of everything to you both.

well jenn i would just like to say how beautiful you looked. i know how you feel my husband has been in for alomost 20 years im younger than him. but this last 2 years have been hard on me knowing that the call could come in at any time and he will be leaving for iraq. i have seen may people who have been and come back from iraq and some that dont get to come back. if you need anything just you can write me or you will always have the help of the squad he is in. i hope for the best with you and jake. i hated that my husband was gone all the time but in the end you have to cherish what time you do have with him cuz you never know when the time is going to come and he will have to go than you will have to have the good times to look back on and use to keep you going until he comes back. you can email me at chamraaimo8469@yahoo.com if you would like to talk or if you need anything.
