Wife to Be

Hello, my name is heather and i am 18 years old and live in ohio i was recently engaged to the man of my dreams but unfortunatly i did not prepare myself for what was ahead of me. My fiance just left for marine bootcamp yesterday (8/6/07). What i didnt relize was how hard it was going to be to be without him its only the second day and it feels like a month without him. I went from being with him 24/7 to not seeing or talking to him in 2 days. Everyone says hes only gone for 3 months but 3 months is going to be eternity for me. I just need someones help or multiple womans help that are going through the same thing or have already been through it.  So please help me out !!!

is he in PI?? Or Cali b/c we are in Beaufort right next to PI my best friend is a DI at PI!!! You must love him very much that is wonderful. I will find out if it is true that you can see then after there crusable ok I will check that out and let you know!

I understand where you are coming from there. My husband has been gone for 7 months and he is due home in around two weeks or less. It is a test on your relationship that is for sure but if you can make it through this, and I know you can, you can make it through anything. Being a military wife is one of the things I am most proud of. I don't like him being away from me for months at a time and sometimes it can be a year. But good news is that the Marine corps just made it to where they are only over seas for 7 months and then home for 7 before they go again. The army has it harder they have to go longer. You'll make it through and if you need someone to talk to e-mail me I'm here for ya.

I kno exactly how u feel my fiance has been gone for close to two months now and even though some nights r lonely I am better now because letters help me a lot and ill b seeing him soon in three week and I can't wait .. And this experiance has brough us a lot closer

:) you must love him very much. Of course you miss him and even the 3 months will feel like years but it could be worst, some leave for years. Distance will bring you even closer ;)
