Wow, I feel lucky. A week, when he went to Vegas for his cousin’s 21st birthday blowout.

Just short of six months. We’re long distance – so we’ve spent a lot of time apart.

We’ve done four months, and even that was pretty tough. I have so, so much admiration for the strength and resolve of women who have had do so much longer, especially military wives/SOs. I don’t know how they do it, but they’re awesome.

3 months with only one phone call and very few emails (less than one a week). It was a sad dark time…

Fiance is currently deployed and when he comes back it will have been 8 months.  He has a future deployment about 14 months after he comes back that will also be 8-9 months.  Sucks…

@yogaqueen:  12 months during a deployment.  We had a couple more 9 month and 10 month separations too until he was finally out.  So, all in all, we were apart for 31 months, out of about 3 years…it sucked, to put it mildly. lol

Fiance deployed for a 7 month deployment to Afghanistan with only emails as communication. Never want to do that again.
