Fork In the Road

I just got out of an relationship that was very......abusive......but then a year ago a man I have known ever since we were in grade school showed his intrest in me. of course i was weary at first, but i calmed down. We are currently engaged and happy as ever. But he is in the Navy and is down in FL. He tells me everthing in going to be alright that we will make it through. But i am still trying to figure out how. I am so young and never been through a situation like this one. I feel torn apart and with all these guys are that i have been friend s with for years makes it that much harder. How do i get by? How to other women do it for years on end waiting for their husbands to return home.....I dont think I can make it. I dont think i am strong enough

All I can say is, if you can envision spending the rest of your days - and really want to be - with this man, you will and can be strong enough for the relationship. If you can't and don't, it's still not too late to say no. I'm not encouraging you to make a snap decision here. Give it some time, though, but don't wait too long. Don't wait 'til - like what gettinby said - you've gotten to the point where you can't decide whether you should stay married to the man, if you ever decide to wed.
