I am new to the nest and this forum so I apologize if this has been talked about before -
I am about to marry a fellow Officer (junior O-3s - believe us, we are often painfully aware of how much younger we are than some of the brilliant Soldiers we lead each day, haha). We are stationed apart and know we will be for the next few years, given different approaching ... travel-the-world ... type opportunities for both of us (if you know what I mean).
We spend as much time as we can together and soon I will be enjoying some worldly travel while he is in training.
We are slightly concerned with how long we will be apart - we are 99% sure we will be stationed together within 2 years, but until then, the closest we will be is 'the travel radius (250 miles)' drive away and the farthest will be (again) a few continents. Has anyone dealt with this? If so, I would love to hear your experiences / thoughts.
We have both been in a few years and have made it through deployments/training already, just not as a dual military married couple.
Thanks and have a wonderful night!
