Military Monday- Mind Your P's and Q's
Small communities - Especially while living overseas, the military community is miniscule. There isn't a single time that I leave my house and DON'T run into someone I know. There are eyes and ears all over the place and some of those eyes and ears have influence in your community.
Your husband's career - Some spouses are oblivious of how their actions can influence their husband's job. Be mindful of how your actions reflect on your husband to deter any possible backlash at his work.
Becoming ostracized - Starting so much drama can lead to unpleasant side effects including getting a reputation for being a problem maker. No one wants to associate with someone that is going to make their life harder. The more negative your reputation is, the more you will be avoided by those around you.
If a problem is on the rise, be the bigger person and walk away. It isn't worth it to become part of the problem. If anything, be part of the solution and act like an adult. If you are having problems with a fellow spouse be civilized and have a conversation and settle your differences rather than spreading rumors or kicking up dust.
