I've been there too and I've seen what the military lifestyle does to marriages. The thing is, it takes a very special woman to be a military wife. The marry the service member and they have their "Knight in shining Armour" in the form of a military uniform. They realize that deployments happen and that they can be gone anywhere from 6 months to over a year! But, what they don't realize is the work ups to these deployments. The weeks and months away prior to the deployment. Military members are gone a lot and the spouses don't truely realize what they've gotten themselves into.
