Snobby Military Wives

I am curious if anyone else has had this same experience?
The first Military installation we moved to all the other wives I met were SNOBS. My husband had just finished training and had only been in for about 6 months. Every wife I came across I got one of two responses:
She snubbed me because her husband was a higher rank and she thought that made her better than me. OR
She informed me that her husband was going to a new duty station and the were moving soon. (Which meant since she was leaving being nice was too much effort because she didn't need a friend)
The few that I did meet that weren't rude were teenagers fresh out of High School who married their boyfriend just so they could move with him and get government housing.

Sorry if that last part offends anyone but I have seen so many young girls get caught up in this life. Boyfriend joins right out of High School and she follows. Without a clue of what shes getting herself into. I didn't have a clue but I was at least older and able to deal with it all.
