Has anyone ever lived separately from their spouses? I am seriously considering moving with my children back to my home town to help out my dad. If anyone has how did your relationship handle it, how did your children handle it? We are still discussing it at this point but would just like to here other people's opinions/ stories. Would you ever consider living some where without your dh/so?

My husband and I have been doing it for a while.
He deployed for 14 months, and found out while he was gone that one of our children has some serious medical problems, the medical care is better where my family is. So he stays on his base and I am up here.
Our marriage does not suffer. He calls the kids and Skypes with us daily.
I just spent a week with him for thanksgiving and am taking the kids down for 15 days at Christmas.
We make it work. We love each other to much to not make it work.

No I could never do it and nor would we ever want too. It would be impossible for our relationship and our 4 kids.

Other than deployments, we have never lived apart. That would not be ok for us, but if you can make it work, good for you. Good luck

 When it comes to relationahips the 2 people in it are the ONLY ones who determine what does or doesnt happen. Sure some couples have not survived separation,but many others have.
