My husband was set to leave for OCS after our wedding (which is why we were enaged in March and married in August). I try to focus on how great it will be when he comes home. I actually like deployments (this probably makes me evil). I have the house to myself and am only responsible for myself- I do miss him when he’s gone and would prefer for him not to go on deployments, it’s just part of the job.

I might be in your shoes come the end of this year. We’re not sure when the wedding is going to be because we’re waiting on immigration and deployment stuff. But if we get our way it might be by the end of this year before he deploys in december. He would only be gone a few months due to him rotating out of the battalion (thank goodness) but he would be gone for at least several months right after the wedding. I’m not looking forward to it, but that is just how things work sometimes.

We will be married on July 2 and he gets deployed in October. we decided to get married in the summer so that we can have enough time for any paperwork that is needed, immigration and financial, done before his deployment. and so we enjoy being married at least a few months before he leaves.
