@MissMats: You’re sweet. Thank you! πŸ™‚

I hope you see your fiancé soon! It’s hard to be apart from the people you love no matter the circumstances.

@MissMats:  Thank you πŸ™‚  The being apart is definitely hard, that’s for sure.  I’m sorry you’re having to be apart from your sweetie right now.  It’s not fun at all!

I feel the same. I think the spouses and the rest of their families are amazing strong people! I had a LDR with my Darling Husband for two years, but at least I knew he was safe.

@MrsRuby:I’m so sorry you have to be apart:(

Thank you!!  I appreciate when people realize that it’s just as hard on spouses and that we sacrifice a lot too.  I’ve been told before that since I’m a military wife, I’m nothing but a money-hungry whore who is obviously cheating on my husband while he’s gone.  Seriously.  I don’t know what it is about being a mil wife, but people ALWAYS have something to say about it… and it’s rarely good.  So thanks — you’re sweet and it’s appreciated. πŸ™‚

It’s tough, but doable, and it really makes being together all the sweeter.  There’s no way to replace that time that I miss with my Darling Husband.  But I am just in awe of his drive and willingness to serve without complaint.  I get my strength from him, and he gets his from me.  We are in this together, and we’re a team no matter if we’re together or apart.  Neither of us could do what we do without the other.

@MissMats:Like the PPs said, being separated for any reason is no fun!

@piglet_625:He serves without complaint? Is this the same military? j/k It’s awesome that your husband can do that! My husband sure complains, but he still works hard and is very dedicated. But, boy can he complain!

OMG @ruby.cosmo, I know!!!! My one cousin was bitching because her father and her hubby went on a long-weekend hunting trip. She then commented how she couldn’t understand how military couples could deal with longer separation. Ummm, a year is slightly different. And we don’t get a choice.

But thanks for all the support! It’s nice to know that people appreciate what our loved ones are doing.

And @Piglet_625, that stereotype of military wives is so disappointing. I have met women who have cheated on their husbands (and even one who was contemplating waiting for her husband to hit 10 years so she could get half his pension) but a much larger majority have no problem not cheating and not misuing money. Shocker.
