One of the topics I want to cover over the next short while is maintaining a marriage while your spouse is deployed. Now let me be clear - I do not think, feel or believe that my marriage to Joel is perfect or that after 3 deployments and 7 years of marriage, that I have this complex-thing called marriage figured out!
We've had our mountain-highs and our desert-lows over the last 7 years - some of those highs and lows were brought on by the military life and some were just brought on my normal, crazy-busy, stressful life. But I think that maintaining a marriage through a deployment brings about a whole set of challenges - some obvious and some not so much.
So, I've been thinking over this topic for some time now and trying, in my head, to organize my thoughts and figure out exactly what parts of our marriage I want to share.
Please post a comment and let me know if there's a particular topic you'd like discussed and I'll try to fit it in. Otherwise, you're simply stuck with whatever comes to mind.
