Long-Distance Marriage

My husband & I have been married for 1 month, 3 days as of today. And today his boss asked him to go to California for 1-2 months (possibly longer.) Oh yeah, and they want him to leave early next week.

I really don't want him to go. Obviously I know military wives have it a million times worse and I'm sorry for that. But when it comes down to it, nobody wants to be away from their spouse for a long period of time. After only a month of marriage we might suddenly become a long-distance couple. It sucks.

Not only will it suck having my husband gone for 2 months but I will take on the responsibility of the house all by myself. And living in MN, we have gotten a TON of snow this year...and we have a big driveway. Which means I would have to shovel every time it snows. (our snow blower broke last week. Go figure.) And if anything goes wrong in the house, it's up to me to fix it. Can I just say that if I was single I would be renting! I don't like the maintenance that goes along with a house. It's kinda pathetic but Tom handles all of that for me.

I don't want to be apart for that long... :( Tom will know more tomorrow. Hopefully they find a way around him having to go for that long!

What a difficult position to be in. It could be good for his career to be willing to make that sacrifice - but I can't imagine how hard it would be on you - especially after only a month of marriage!

Just know that you're strong enough to handle whatever may come at you. Hoping everything works out!!

So not fair. Newlyweds! I agree with Amber though, maybe it's a good career move. Your marriage will remain as strong as it is now.. but you're going to miss each other something terrible. :(

I am sure no matter what happens your love will continue to grow stronger

on a positive note, when he comes back it will be like your honey moon all over again.
