Army Spouse, Talking to another military spouse or someone who has experience living this lifestyle is a great idea. Long distance relationships are very challenging especially when our loved one is deployed. Since you are a new military spouse, it might be hard to find other military spouses at your installation. I'm not sure when your spouse is coming home, but I encourage you to connect with your command/unit Family Readiness Group, your base Chaplain or a counselor at your local Family Support Center for support. You can also contact MilitaryOneSource.com 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1.800.342.9647. Talking to someone you can trust is important and I encourage you to reach out to one or more of these resources. Know that you are not alone and please keep in touch.

Dear Spouse I am an Army spouse and a Soldier, and I can tell you that no marriage is immune to the marriage blues. My husband and I go to counseling. We call it preventive maintenance. If you are like me, and don't like the Army involved in your issues try going to militaryonesource. Your Military life consultant is also a good one, and he/she will meet you outside the base if need be. They will give you and your spouse free counseling with a civillian psychologist. Good luck.

My husband deployed less than two weeks after we were married. The first couple of months we fought everytime we talked to each other. We even started talking about divorce because neither one of us would compromise. After he talked to several of his friends that are married (and I was exhausted from fighting and started giving in), we realized that the underlying problem was the deployment itself. I have my freedom and hes stuck in a sanbox for seven months. He wants to be home with me and he cant be. We were dating through this first deployment and there really is a big difference between being a military girlfriend and a military spouse. You guys are going to fight. Youre going to disagree. But what really matters is that you both still are willing to work to make it work. You both have to bend and compromise.
