I am sure that there are other ladies (especially on this particular board) that will not be able to spend time with their husband on their wedding anniversary. It will be my first wedding anniversary and I won’t be able to spend it with hubby because he is deployed overseas. Our wedding anniversary is in September. Feeling sad.

My husband is deployed for three weeks out of every month. Two, if I’m lucky.
I’ve had to give up a lot of first times and anniversaries for it. But, that’s the life I chose. I don’t regret a thing.

@bearbear1: I’m not a military wife, but I am a military sister and I know how hard it is to deal with my brother not being able to come to big family events, but I can’t imagine how hard it is to have to spend special and personal events like that apart. I’m sorry that you have to deal with it, but thank you to your husband for serving our country and thank you for being there to support him.

@bearbear1: I am so sorry to hear that! We haven’t experienced that yet but we still celbrate our anniversary from when we first started dating so I have experienced being alone during that….What we did was write letter that we would open on our anniversary and included a small wallet size (he was in BMT when we missed the first anniversary) picture of the other person. It is hard and it is so okay to cry if you need too but just remember that it is just one more thing to celebrate when he gets home and you get to hug him again!

@bearbear1: Awww, ((HUGS)). That does suck. I have a few military wife friends and I know it can be a real hardship being separated for so long and their husband missing out on holidays and special events. I appreciate you supporting a man who is defending our beautiful country. You are awesome. I hope you can video chat on your anniversary.

@bearbear1: it stinks and it really doesn’t get much easier but you at least learn new ways to make it more bearable. my SO are both mil so it’s been interesting. in the 16 months we’ve been a couple, we’ve actually only been in the same place for 8 of them.
