I am a new military wife of about six months, but I'm a military brat, so I'm not new to the military.

I agree with Jess on the introductions. My husband and I went to my work's Christmas party last year and he was introduced as his name followed by, my husband so people would know who he was to me. When he introduced himself to people when mingling on his own, he said he was my husband so they knew who he was here with and that he wasn't just some random person that came to the party. I have no problem identifying myself as my husband's wife. That doesn't mean that is all that I am though, just a part of who I am.

Le'sigh...

I tried really hard not to go here...

You may not realize this, but your post sounds very, "Marriage Fantasy-ish."
