Miley_I-da-Ho: There are more landmines in 50 years of marriage then there are in Afghanistan.
Unc1e_B: Interesting info. My grandparents have these medals!
Ksir73: Been deployed to Afghanistan.
50 years of marriage is definitely a superior accomplishment, by far.
radome9: Marriage is the only war where you sleep with the enemy.
PastelFlamingo150: You ever spend 50 years sleeping in a foxhole?
VaguerCrusader: Poles realize that a robust family unit is a better contributing factor to a robust nation than a military

youtytoo: Hey, my grandparents got that…
projektnitemare13: being on the front lines that long deserves some respect.
Sence: Can confirm, am married to a polish woman.
holddoor: Because anyone can be deployed to Afghanistan. It literally takes nothing other than surviving the flight there. Staying married for 50 years takes a lot more work.
malvoliosf: Deployment to Afghanistan is only a year and everybody who wants to kill you is usually miles away, not in the same bed.
araiyan: imagine looking insanity in the eye and staying with it. for 50 years.
Safemongoose: Achievement Unclocked: 50 years service.
nipzx: Is this for Polish army deployment to Afghanistan? Didn’t even know they where involved.
hankbaumbach: Don’t worry, the US is going to get that 50 year medal for being in Afghanistan that long…only 34 more years to go!
whiskeyknitting: Marriage is a lot like Calvin Ball.
Source: married 24 years so far.
LovelyBeats: I actually think it’s kinda beautiful that they value love over war.
Im_Justintyler: Yeah well you try being married to a Polish woman for 50 years.
MyShotsAreWhizzing: i think marriage is harder
Esoteric_Erric: And rightly so
trai_dep: To be fair, surviving a war lasting over 50 years *should* be ranked higher.
Qf3ck3r: Marriage is harder.
– Source was deployed.
Po1ar: well that’s because everyone under 40 is in the military
thats_handy: Yer fergettinabout Poland!
CoWood0331: Just because you are deployed to a theater of conflict doesn’t mean you have seen combat. It just means you were there for a set period of time. This is absolutely has more merit.
Ax15rGt: Make love, not war I guess
MagikBiscuit: I’m….I’m….not sure if this is good..or bad…or how I feel about this…
Ckjorstadhris: Should get the veterans discounts too.
RGA64: national defence medal
DBMlive: ฯLove and Marriage, Love and Marriageฯ
kelly_mangoblin: Awards for personal merit always outweigh all deployment ribbons.
dunnkw: Not surprising:
pooshhMao: Of course. You’d have to suffer a woman in your life for half a decade. One that stopped being fuckable at 30.
fiveminded: Makes sense, the struggle is real.
DartzIRL: 1 year on the battlefield -v- 50 years of torture.
ODISY: I think this is pretty dumb, i get the marrige is a battlefield jokes but seeing your friends get blown to pices is much worse than some trivial fights with your spouse.
Firefro626: My wife, am I right guys?
harland3: Can you polish Polish medals with Polish polish?
ieatassonfirstdate: For obvious reasons
eggiezisNseason: As it should
JOwenAK: The 50 years war.
ejly: Love is a battlefield.
nspectre: That makes sense.
After 50 years of marriage, who do you think has seen more combat and fought in more battles… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
thegreedyturtle: Well duh. 50 years deployed in a cobat zone? That’s like… three times longer than the Afgan war.
toothsaber: On battlefield you die only once..
S1lm4r1l: 50 years of warfare versus 16 years. Makes total sense to me.
proctor_of_the_Realm: Well, one is about love and the other is about war. This is absolutely as it should be.
Amor vincit omnia!
Aphrodite vs. Ares. Well, somehow those two ended up married but hey, that’s love for you.
ThreeAmigos123: Well that’s not right.
tankpuss: And rightly so.
One’s a dirty murderous skirmish, the other is at best a never ending cease fire.
canadianbydeh: Well it is like a 600 month deployment in a way
Siege-Perilous: How long after decades of wrongful imprisonment and daily abuse did Nelson Mandela get divorced?
STTRANGERX: Fair enough!
Markamp: As well it should
AnalogGenie: LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD 🎶
Selwolfz: As it should!
ChaparralHiker: Love is a battlefield.
reitau: Mainly because Polish women are generally hot af. Resistance to that either makes you gay or deserved of said medal. Good job Slavic breeding!
smartdumby: How irrelevant.
therealmuddabuhshit: how the fuck does that make even remote sense “lets see which is higher loving someone and staying with them for fifty years or risking your life in a far off country im leaning towards the first one”
