Military relationships are completely different from civilian relationships and you can't say what you would do in that situation unless you factor in everything that comes with military life. When someone is deployed, they cannot talk to their partner whenever they feel like it. They are under a great deal of constant stress and he last thing they need to worry about is the state of their relationship.
Military spouses get a level of support on the base that girlfriends/boyfriends do not always have access to (whether officially or because they are treated like outsiders).
When they return from active duty, many service people have a hard time adjusting to life back in the US, regardless of marital status. For some, it helps to have a stable, committed relationship to keep them grounded. For others, that makes the adjustment harder.
I think that military spouses are a special kind of amazing and we don't give them enough credit.
Thank you.:)
