Congrats on your marriage! Although my husband and I have been married nearly 8 years, I also understand how hard those early into marriage separations can be. My husband did 8 years active duty Marine Corps, and 4 of those I was his wife. He was always leaving for some reason or another. The separations are hard, but the homecomings are great!
Now that his specialty is wildland fire, the summers are hard when our girls and me are missing him, but his time home is worth the separation.
I am here if you need someone to chat with.
