What should I do now?

This guy that I met almost 2 years ago online recently got back in contact with me. He says that he never stopped thinking about me and now he wants me and my kids to move to another city with him. The thing is that he's in the military. He says he would like for us to get married before he leaves for Iraq in two months. He's going to be gone for 12-15 months. I'm scared because I don't want to be one of those "military wives" wondering if her husband is coming home. I love him and would love to marry him, but I'm just afraid right now. What should I do in this situation? I want to spend time with him, but we won't have too much time since he's going to be leaving so soon. I just wish I could make the right decision on this one because it could affect the rest of my life.

Pray about it first and foremost. Think long and hard about this and how it will affect your family. It is ultimately your decision if you marry him or not so be sure you love him. If it were me in this situation and I knew I loved him and knew he loved me then I would more than likely make the move and marry him. I know tons of military wives out there and they have the same concern as you. But on the other hand they try not to think about it but instead think about how their hubby is serving for our country. If you move soon and get married then you will have some time with him. I am going to say go for it.
