Struggling with my partner being in the army

#1 Post by Phd123 » Wed 15 May, 2019 12:47 am

Hi all, I’m new to this forum, and just looking for a bit of support/advice please. I’ve been with my boyfriend for 6 years, and knew he was signing up for the army when we met at university. He’s been away for 6 out of the last 9 months (not all at once). When he’s back, his base is 3hrs from our home. I’m really really struggling with my feelings about his career choice. I have a career, of which he is very supportive, and I want to support him, but I hate the instability of this lifestyle and crave some routine and ‘normality’. When he’s gone I feel in limbo, I manage to keep myself very busy but miss him so much and feel like I’m just wishing my life away. None of my friends or family have been in this position and so I feel like he’s the only one I can talk to, but then I feel guilty for ‘burdening’ him with these feelings. I just don’t know what to do :(
