A military divorce requires experience, compassion and commitment

Most people would agree that all successful marriages require effort from both spouses. In a military marriage, this is usually truer than many new couples are prepared for. It can be extremely difficult to maintain a healthy relationship when one spouse is absent for extended periods. Further, after a period of deployment, the couple may find that their understanding of one another has undergone changes. For example, if one spouse has suffered through combat, he or she may come back and seem different than before. Extreme life experiences can do that to people.
