First DeploymentComing into the relationship I knew what I was signing up for but I didn't expect it to be so hard. My husband and I fell madly in love extremely fast, like REALLY fast. We were married a short 4 months after meeting and very quickly started our family. We planned our pregnancy to work around his deployment that was coming up. We decided it would be best for me to be pregnant during his deployment so he would not miss his child's first year of life, but a month after finding out we were going to be parents his deployment was rescheduled. Six weeks after our son was born he left for a twelve month deployment. We are currently two months into that deployment and it's hard. Already he has missed our son rolling over for the first time and he's going to miss so much more! Does it ever get easier? Since the day we met we never spent a day away from each other. He's the love of my life and hurts I miss him so badly. I know this is just the beginning since my husband plans to career out, which I support 100% since jobs are hard to come by and lets face it you can't beat the benefits. Any advice on ways to cope?
