If you are serving in the armed forces, you already know the ways in which your life is very different from your civilian friends and family. Trained to defend our nation, your job may require deployment upon short notice. While executing orders, you experience situations and events which you “can neither confirm nor deny.” Based upon your job responsibilities, civilians simply cannot relate.
While all relationships have their stressors, you likely have different job requirements affecting your relationship, which may cause additional strain on your marriage. Nobody needs to tell you a military marriage is much different than those of your civilian friends, but if your marriage is no longer working for you, you may wonder if a military divorce is different for servicemembers.
