The key is that she has a film degree that SHE HAS NO INTEREST IN. That's why everyone's knocking on her. What good will her job be if she doesn't like it? The OP at least is doing something he wants to be doing. Marines pay well enough, and once you're living comfortably, a job you love can be worth more than a job you hate that pays $100,000 more.

One, please never use "real talk" again. Two, OP stated he is becoming an officer. Unless he is non-commissioned (and he doesn't seem old enough to be) he HAS A DEGREE. He has to to become an officer. OP's now ex bitch has a degree she has NO interest in, works at the MALL making minimum wage (or slightly higher) and just moved back in with her dad. Just because she has an education, it does not make her smart or worth knowing. Her current job won't take her far, and you cannot

Wrong. In order to become an officer a Marine should be earning or have earned a bachelor's degree. http://www.ehow.com/video_4950560_become-marine-officer.html He isn't a great public speaker, but he knows what he is pushing. Candidate must finish degree before being offered a commission. *sigh* Doesn't that put a bend in your "he must not be as intelligent" theory, since she *could* be dumb as dirt and still have passed all the classes that she needed to earn her degree she has

I bet there is a lot more behind this story. Being in the service is pretty hard on the family. I say whatever happened happened for the best. I personally think that the op probably have promised her that he'll get out but then he got the offer to become an officer and decided to stay. So she got upset, which I don't blame her. Regardless nothing wrong with either of their decision...

"Why is everyone calling her stupid? For one she has a degree in film which can easily land her a job making at least equal(if not more) to his paycheck as a marine and she will go further in her job than he ever will on his. Also most likely she's more educated than he is, because stats show people going to the marines today usually don't have more than just a high school diploma. Also for most people it was their last resort cause the person couldn't get into or afford to go any place els

Not neccessarily. I was a marine, I have a job now that makes more money than all my buddies out of college. And I do sit behind a desk.

uhhh...im pretty sure if he's a marine and going to get his degree and go to OCS he will make more than someone with a Film Degree, Marine Corps is on the same pay scale as the Army as far as i know, and army 2nd Lieutenants make 2500 a month base, plus free health care, free dental, free housing, or basic allowances to help the mortgage etc. Give him 10-15 years in he'll make 100k.

if she only works at the mall she must not be that intelligent and marine officers make alot of money

Hellooo..she works at the mall. Obviously she is not making use of that film degree and has no intention of doing so either if she has no interest in it. It doesn't matter how much money this guy is making, the point is she said "he doesn't know where he's going with his future". Which is ironic because from what he said he has his future pretty well planned out and she is really the one who doesn't know what the hell she's doing.

I'm in the Marines (always capitalize it) and I went in to serve my country. I had colleges sending me scholarships all over and I made a 27 on my ACT. Ive been told I would be an outstanding lawyer, but no I wanted to defend people like you who call us dumb or poor. My family is middle-class and I could've had a free ride in college so don't stereotype US Marines. We are smarter and better then you think.

First off, I had a college scholarship for athletics, but I was ranked in the top 10% of my class (around 1000 students). Chose the marines instead of college because I wanted to serve before I started my life, and frankly I'm tired of school. Too many people like the bitch that's calling this future Marine Officer an idiot. So far, I regret nothing. Second, you have to have a degree to become an officer, and passing OCS is no mean feat. You have to be a stellar Marine to make it there, and it's

But he's working in becoming an officer which is an extremely high rank on the military with good pay and he said she has no interest in film and she works at the mall and lives with her dad. He deserves someone much better than that

He can go to collage. There is nothing knew marine contract that says they can't and I take it very offensive when you say most marines are unintelligent my best friend went into the marines and the smartest man I know. Manuel you should do some research before bashing the ones that keep us free and give us this right to express out opinion

I live in Arizona and my comments usually contain some relevance to the OP. OP, good riddance, find yourself a gal that can deal with someone that actually knows what and where they're going in life. Hoorah man, thank you for your service.

I agree with #4, your going to be a Marine Officer, you'll have no problem finding someone 10 times better than she is.
