So, my hubby has been on deployment for about a month now. We try to email every day and we are good at emailing. We also use fb chat to communicate. He has also called me twice since being on deployment. 🙂 Anyways, I got an email from him today saying how much he hates deployments and just venting to me. The weird thing is, I don’t mind the venting at all. Of course, I wish he wasn’t sad and frustrated but I really don’t mind the venting. Am I weird for feeling/thinking that way???

When DH was deployed, I didn’t mind his venting at all. Heaven knows he needed an outlet and I was happy to be that person! I would have much rather him vent every conversation rather than have him bottle it up and be distracted while on a mission.

I don’t find it weird that you don’t mind him venting. Am I missing something in the post?
Maybe you don’t mind he is complaining because you feel that confiding how he feels to you makes you feel closer to each other?

@PetalFace: +1, I feel like I’m missing something too. FI and I vent to each other and are very supportive. I’d expect nothing less.

Erm…you love him? Why would you mind hearing him vent?

Well I think venting can become annoying when it’s an all the time thing. I don’t find it weird that you don’t get annoyed though since he’s not there to bitch in person. It’s good you’re an outlet for him.

Not weird at all. You should be his go to. I feel really sorry for the guys who deploy and have no one especially when there on a ship or in the sand. Its sad actually. Its wonderful that you can take the venting without getting all sappy. He just needs an ear not pity.

You’re his best friend. Of course he would vent to you. I guess I don’t understand the Question either.
