Yikes! 

As much as you want to say, ” NOOOO give it some time” its usually never well received. I think you should speak your peace in an honest and friendly way if it is indeed your best friend, but in the end you will just have to support her choice and be there for her through the sunshine and rain of that relationship!

If he always runs back to his ex and actually asked his ex to get back together, then he is not that in love with your friend… I think it’s time your friend wakes up and smells the coffee…

Ugh. See before you mentioned the whole “trying to get back with the ex” part I would have said something like…it’s hard being a friend and being unbiased with these things sometimes because you have only heard mostly the negatives when they fight etc.but… 

It doesn’t sound like he is as in love with her, as she is with him or he is still hung up on his ex. I would try to talk to your friend and just let her know she has options and that she doesn’t have to put up with someone who goes running back to his ex every time they argue and alternately, that she doesn’t have to marry him and move away just because he *might* be shipped to Japan…maybe time apart would help her to make a decision. Unfortunately though – you just have to remember through it all, to be a friend to her. You can’t make her change her mind about something, you can just be there to support and be there for her through the bad and good.
