I was 28 when I enlisted and there were several in my group that were at least a decade older than me.
If my husband had said no, I wouldn't have joined. In fact I waited a long time even though he kept saying yes because I didn't think he understood the realities of service life. HOWEVER it was a life long dream of mine and one of the few things I knew I would regret on my death bed if I didn't do it.
Do you think it would be like that for him or do you think it's just a passing fancy?
