  • Try searching in groups. I bet there are groups for Military moms. You'll definitely find support in a group like that. I can't imagine what you must go through and I respect you and your husband very much for doing it, thank you!

  • i'm a military mom and wife. and it all just depends on the branch of service the dh is in. mine's in the coast gaurd and land based for atleast the next 2yrs. so i have it easy. i don't have 2 worry about deployments or him going out on patrol. thought there r some nites when he doesn't come home till the weeeee hours of the am bc he had 2 stay at work. but i'll take what i can get. and yes, it can b difficult.

  • It's not any harder being married to a military man than a non-military man. It just depends on the MAN. My husband works long hours & has been deployed, but he is a good husband and a good father.

  • I'm engaged and pregnant by a military man.I find it very hard,but I guess it depends on the circumstances.

  • Yes it is especially when they are deployed,but even without that it seems hard for the military wants families to put the military first.Seems to be a constant compromise between family and military first.Gets to seem like a never ending sacrifice between the both,i support my husband and what he does for our family and country,but yes it is def hard and in the end def worth it!!

  • I ama military mom and married to a wonderful Navy brother with whom I am very close to is also a SEAL... it can be very hard at times, but like the other women have said, it depends on your circumstances. My husband is usually gone for 2-6 weeks at a time, so when I think about other husbands being away for 18+ months...I like to think that I have it easy...

  • I am a militay mom and married to a marine. My husband is a recruiter and it sucks!!! Him being a recruiter it is very hard to have quality family time he is never home for a full day. But when he was stationed in NC he was home a lot and we spent lots of time together. So I guess it depends on what his job is.
