Kailyn Lowry has been traveling around the country on a book tour for her New York Times bestseller Pride Over Pity, and recently she showed that she really does live that philosophy.
The Teen Mom 2 star was in Fort Worth, Texas, yesterday, meeting fans and signing books, but there was one person conspicuously absent -- her darling husband Javi Marroquin. Javi's been able to travel with Kail on a few of these trips, so why couldn't he make it this time?

Javi is a proud member of the U.S. Air Force, which means he isn't at liberty to jet off with his wife whenever he feels like it. It's got to be a major bummer for Kail that he can't always be there for her and sometimes has to put his job ahead of her needs and wants, but this chick takes it all in stride.
Wish my husband could come to every signing with me for my book tour! But military first. ðï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ love you @JaviM9— Kail Lowry-Marroquin (@KailLowry) June 25, 2014
Is that the definition of pride over pity or what? She could totally be feeling all sorry for herself, feeling lonely or abandoned or whatnot over Javi's absence.
Instead she's so proud of her man and is happy to make the sacrifices she needs to in order to support him. No wonder we can't help but love her.
Have you ever had to sacrifice something for someone in the service?
