Air Force mother explains stresses of deployment on a family

On Behalf of | May 14, 2013 | Military Divorce

Some families in Washington this month were particularly happy to celebrate Mother’s Day this past weekend; especially if it offered even a small distraction from a divorce or separation.  For military families it may have been bittersweet though, especially in cases where one parent is deployed.  It’s a stress some mother’s say is difficult to go through but not impossible to bear.

So says one Air Force mother who recently opened up about the hardships military families across the nation must endure during deployments.  While her marriage may be stable, it’s like any other in the country and requires constant work and attention to not end in divorce.

When her husband is deployed, she explains, daily tasks take a lot more effort; especially because she has an Air Force career and six children to take care of.  “It requires a lot of patience, organization and scheduling,” she says.  Constant communication is also needed and says that her children enjoy face-time with their father on the iPad every morning before they go to school.

As many of our readers already know, deployments can be incredibly stressful on marriages and can have a huge impact on children as well.  While most marriages survive a single deployment, a marriage’s survival can sometimes become less and less with each additional deployment.  This military mother says that the support she has received from the military is one of the many reasons her marriage has survived for so long.

Despite marriage counseling services that are offered to married couples in the armed service, sometimes these therapy sessions are not enough to keep a marriage from ending in divorce.  If this does end up being the situation for you, it’s important to know that you don’t have to go through the process alone.
