  • We are having another baby on Monday, and he has been gone for 8 months now... Its hard to be without him but its only for another two months...LOTS of letters do help and knowing how much we love each other....Also keeping busy helps me keep my mind off of how much I miss him.

  • I deal with it, and take it day by day, my husband is going to be away for almost a year. 2 months instead of a year would be wonderful.

  • we lived apart the first 1 1/2 years of our marriage because we were looking for a house. we just talked on the phone alot and visited maybe once every 3 months.

  • Get a web camera and a headset(for desktops) laptops usually come equiped and skype every day so you can see each other, is a free chat site, both of you will have to get an account and you have to request eachother as a friend. its basically a video phone call, random people cant call you, only people who are on your list

  • My DH had to go in to some out of state treatment for 6 weeks when my oldest was a baby - I was very pregnant with number 2. It was really really hard... But I did what I had to do. We talked every day on the phone and I kept busy...
