It is never easy having a family member in the military. And it is even harder when that someone is your spouse and they are deployed over seas. I have always been a part of a military family, but have been fortunate enough that my spouse and my father have never seen the front lines. Other members of my family, however, have fought bravely for our freedom numerous times. Being away from your family under such circumstances is hard on the marriage. In fact, military divorces have increased 41% since 2001. Hopefully, the number won't increase with our soldiers returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan.
