He is a douche to do that. Dump it, or get it to say sorry.

No, the boyfriend. Going by the information given in the FML he cares more about his material possessions than his girlfriend.

A marine who's a douchebag; there's a shocker.

Everyone's allowed their own opinions. 1 and 23 chose to post derogatory comments, but I do understand the emotions that guided them. It does little good to make any kind of negative statements about the military or soldiers though, even when very polite, because the people who support the military do so wholeheartedly. Any argument that shows less than enthusiastic feelings toward the military usually ends in dozens of people all screaming at the offender. Saying you don't like the marines is basically saying that you enjoy mass murder or want to kill a kitten- it causes a similar amount of fury. Even an intelligent debate about people's opinions is rarely received well, so rude comments will certainly be given many thumbs. I've seen both sides. The majority of my family is military, and many of my customers at work are soldiers. I'd say about one third of them are decent and kind, but the other two thirds will cuss you out or sneer at you. That's just what I feel. I'm going to go away now.

Dude, doc and pog8691 most of us kinda are douchebags. Sure it's infuriating when civilians who don't know their mouths from there assholes act like they have any right to judge our behavior but you can't blame them. Also the chick should probably dump him. For the most part we're great lays but terrible boyfriends.

#48_Ha Ha, very funny. But, yes jarhead, all Marines ARE douchebags assholes! OP, get your Sunday best bikini on & take a picture on the car. You can then tell douchebag his car got you off better than asswipe did.

Just FYI... I'm a military spouse, and the insensitivity never changes. He'll be this way every day for the rest of ur marriage. Think really hard if that's who u want in ur life forever bc money and his toys always seem to take priority. Good luck.

Sensitivity is almost drilled out of some Marines. It's the training. They want an effective killer and one who feels no negative emotions towards completing the mission and doing what's right whether it is or not, is the most efficient soldier.

61- oh, it's cool to know that stereotyping people because they're in the military is ok... I mean, the whole fighting for our safety and freedom deserves no respect? And don't you even bring up the stupid wars, that's not the military's fault. That's fucking politicians. Yes, it was bad of him, but one example cannot speak for a vast and diverse group of people. Your inductive logic has failed you.

61- I'm a military spouse as well. All throughout basic and AIT my husband wanted pictures of me, wrote letters, and called every chance he got. My friends's husbands were just the same. Not all military personnel are like OP's and your husband. Coincidently, in relation to the FML, we bought a new car while he was away and he only asked for two pictures [interior and exterior] and that was only because he wasn't there to help pick it out. FYL OP. Obviously something is wrong if after months of not seeing or talking to you he's only interested in his car.

PnKaos you have no idea what the fuck you're talking about. We're insensitive because after all the shit we've seen and done nothing, and I mean NOTHING, can invoke the same emotions. Moreover we are constantly taught, especially in the corps, that we must keep ourselves to a higher moral standard due to the intensity of the situations in which we will find ourselves. And to wrap it up, if you ever call a marine a soldier to his face he'll punch you in the dick.

61 - that's a personality problem, not a military problem. My sailor is the exact opposite of that, even now while he's on deployment. Don't blame your husband's asshattery on the military.

See I love cars, so I wouldn't mind having a boyfriend obsess over cars, because then we could obsess together. Strangely enough, I have yet to date a guy that loves cars.

That doesn't mean he loves his car more than her. I would think he already has plenty of pictures of the OP or is able to see her on her Facebook (and such). Now he wants to see his car too. ***Many guys love and take pride in their cars. Mine does. Also drags me to car shows and watches those car auctions and Pimp my ride shows on TV. :P

I'm a guy, obsessed with cars, most the girls I've dated ended up having an appreciation for the work that goes into them at the end if our relationships

You don't know that.. He could have one but have values and is patriotic. He is american and will defend our rights. One of which IS owning a buggati and being in marines...

He could have a Bugatti veyron. Like my picture. But that car is only 1.8-2.6 million USD. That's chump change. What he should have is a Maybach exelero. Now that's a car. 8 million USD.

57 - because ONLY rich people run for public office, and ONLY broke 18-22 year olds sign up for the military. That was almost painful to type. Smack yourself in the face with your ignorance and stereotypes. They're dense enough to make quite the impact, I imagine.

He's pussy whipped, what can I tell you??

Don't get too revved up about it, OP. As long as he neglects you, just remind him his stick won't be shifting any time soon. In fact, you might want to consider hitting the brakes on the relationship altogether, if this continues. Don't give him the opportunity to torque about it, either.
