Yep – we were long distance for 10 months and it didn’t even involve a large influx of money.

I would be ok with it.  He is making the sacrifice to leave for 6 mos. and I think it is very admirable.  Of course, I would make sure the Fiance is also doing this because he wants to not because he thinks I want him to.  // My Fiance is in the military so there is a chance he may be deployed for as long as 9 mos. so I’m bracing myself for when that comes. It’ll be tough.  //  Good luck!

It wouldn’t be fun but I would deff deal with it for the $$!

I would be ok with it if it was guaranteed money.

If he wanted to then I’d support his decision.  And let’s face it, financial security is a huge benefit.

It would stink, but the money would be well worth it if it was enough to help us get started!

We’ve never done the long distance thing and I hope we never have to but if we were in dire need of money and the only option was to be seperated for 6 months so that we could make ends meet then we’d do it. I would hate every minute of it but if it was absolutely necessary then so be it.

Yup. When my SO are engaged, he is spending 5 months of our enagement put of town in police college to become an OPP officer. It is worth it for us as he will be getting paid as he is there, and it he also get a great career out of it. I say that if he will be making enough money to start your lives out together then it is definitely worth it! 🙂

I think I’d do it for 6 months before the wedding.  FI and I are long distance until the wedding and it’s making me even more excited to hurry up and marry him so I can finally see him everyday!

No, I can’t imagine being without him that long, it would kill me, and, honestly, the money wouldn’t matter to me.  But I admire all the strong ladies who could do it.  I’ve never been in a long-distance relationship of any kind, though.
