Military families face all the challenges of any family plus the additional strains of long distance relationships. In the words of one military spouse, "little did I know how months of deployment could strain relationships, combat zones can injure bodies and brains, infidelity can creep in when you least expect it and individuals can change when forced to spend time apart." In the words of another, "Its hard for me once he's returned to immediately hand some of the control back."
Deployment is obviously difficult but redeployment is the time where most problems for military families begin. Whether your challenges are directly related to military life or not, be assured that I am familiar with the military and you will not have to waste time explaining how that affects you and your family.
