My husband is deployed right now and my cousins are constantly trying to tell me how I should act. They are constantly telling my how the military is and how life is. Grant it their husbands are military (one army one navy) but my husband is Marines. The navy wife is telling me how hard life is. She even tried talking me out of getting married to him! Its not the same though! her husband is gone for nine months with 6 months off then nine back on. My husband has a 6 to 2 job and doesnt work weekends! He is deployed now and I had written a status update saying a song lyric then I miss you Tim. This family wrote all sorts of stuff like you married a military guy stop whining! I was furious! what can i not miss my husband? and i wasnt whinning! I was sending love! ugh! sorry i just needed to ventAnswer Question

Wow, any military wife should be allowed to say they miss their husbands no matter HOW long the deployment is for or how often they are deployed. My DH has been in for 12.5 years and there is no way I think I know everything about the military or even presume to tell other wives how they "should" feel while their dh is deployed. If you need to vent, there's a lot of military wives groups here on CM. One of the best ones I've found is this one:
But don't let the ones who are telling you to "quit whining" affect you.
