What Does Javi From 'Teen Mom' Do In The Military? Kailyn's Husband Is Sadly Away From His Family Again
Many Teen Mom significant others have come and gone, but unlike the rest of the lot, Javi Marroquin has remained a fixture on the show and in Kailyn Lowry's life. If you haven't caught up on the show in quite some time (like a really, really long time), the two are married and have a child together, a son named Lincoln, in addition to Kailyn's first child, Isaac, with her ex, Jo Rivera. But while Teen Mom 2 is a major part of Javi's life, there's something even more prominent: his job in the U.S. military. But what exactly does Javi do in the military?
Well, that's a great question. As it turns out, Javi is in the Air Force. According to Wet Paint, he graduated from Air Force training in May 2013 and reportedly posted a picture of his uniform on Instagram, which has since been deleted, with the caption, "Now it's hitting me. Graduation is right around the corner. Means home is a couple days away.” Aww!"
At the time, Lowry had also tweeted her congratulations, saying,
So proud of my husband for graduating! I feel an emotional reunion coming up for us next week. #USAF @JaviM9 #hua
While a majorly prestigious and honorable accomplishment, sadly, nearly three years later, Kailyn and Marroquin find themselves apart because of it once again. Javi has been deployed and fans of Teen Mom 2 were positively gutted while watching it happen on air. I mean, could you blame them? You can check out some of their tweets, that Javi himself retweeted, below:
And if his or Kailyn's social media is any indication, the family is still missing each other immeasurably:
Well, now my heart hurts. But I'm sure Javi and Kailyn will make it through this tough time, just as they always have.
