Perhaps it is the time apart that can happen between spouses in the military, or the intensity of the job or maybe it is that the marriage itself was rushed into. Often military spouses needing a divorce express a sense of absolute alienation from the other spouse, and a great deal of loneliness in the marriage. If you are a member of the military, in need of a divorce, know that you are not alone.
“Ever try moving 4,000 miles with three kids, a very pregnant wife and a large dog with only six weeks’ notice?” she asked. “That alone could make or break you as a couple. Now, try doing it a half a dozen times or more over the course of a marriage. You either learn to work together or you break apart trying.” A Quote of a Military Spouse from the Huffington Post.
