    I am relatively new to being an army girlfriend

    and it's the hardest thing I've had to do. I can barely cope with 3 weeks of him being away for some training. I fully respect the wives/girlfriends who don't get to see there loved ones for months and not having any communication with them at all. But I will stick by him!

    My fiancé will be leaving

    for Korea for 9 months. He is only getting to come see me for a week. I work 40 hours and go to school but all I wanna do is be with him. Here at home I feel so alone and secluded. I feel as if I mourn his death every time he has to leave and when he's not around.

    Being an Army Wife, is nothing

    but COMMITMENT, to be committed 100% to your spouse whether he is deployed or not, and also stay 100% faithful is the number one key in a whole life time relationship.
