Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this drama about military spouses has strong sexual innuendo, some upsetting scenes of a teen physically abusing his mother, and lots of drinking (some in response to post traumatic stress), While current events in the Middle East provide a backdrop for the show, at its heart, the series is a fictional drama about life as an Army wife (or husband) -- not the current war.

Sexual Content

Strong sexual innuendo and occasional simulated sex acts (including oral sex). Some skimpy underwear. Some of the wives discuss the various names for their vagina, talk about virginity, etc. Sex and infidelity are frequent topics of discussion.


Disturbing images of a teen son hitting/abusing his mother. News footage of U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan is sometimes visible. Children occasionally play with guns, tanks, and other military-type toys. Soldiers are sometimes seen working with or wielding guns. Physical fights between soldiers, some of whom are drunk or traumatized. Some violent incidents, like explosions.


Audible language includes "ass," "damn," "hell," etc.

Social Behavior

The show tackles a wide variety of mature, complex topics -- including adoption, surrogate motherhood, alcoholism, children abusing parents, post traumatic stress disorder, and more -- in typically melodramatic soap opera fashion. But it also highlights many of the real difficulties associated with living on an active Army post.
