We asked the question, and y’all delivered! Last week we posed on Instagram – tell us your “unpopular opinion” about submarine spouse life. We shared the responses and asked for you to weigh in. Here’s the result:
I like Groton.
Turns out not everyone thinks Groton is rotten! More proof on that, here.
I’ll take that Charleston heat and humidity over any station
Almost a 50/50 split here! Check out our Charleston content here.
San Diego is our least favorite duty station
Guam > Hawaii
Another close one! Don’t miss all of our great Guam content (and more coming soon).
I don’t hate the boat or think of it as his “other woman“
This one made me chuckle.
Kings Bay really is awesome
Close but not quite! Check out our Kings Bay page and make the most of your time there.
Homecoming isn’t all it’s cracked up to be – reintegration is hard work and takes time

Not in agreement here! But everyone is different.
I actually enjoy living in different places every 2-3 years
Totally agree! A great perspective which was also shared in this salty write-up.
I didn’t enjoy Hawaii as much as I thought I would
So many in agreement here! Duty stations are different for everyone and it’s OK. You don’t have to love it. If you need some Hawaii inspiration, click here.
Bangor is a grossly overrated duty station
