Relationships are a part of life. In the Marine Corps it is no different. While every couple is unique in how they cope with military life, one unifying theme is clear: you are not alone. Whether you are experiencing stress as you redefine your role in the relationship, or are pondering how to talk to your spouse about how your lives have changed as a result of military experiences, you are not alone.
A top concern of military spouses is communication. As your relationship changes in response to life’s transitions, consider there are many different approaches to communicating with your loved one:
Healthy communication can help you learn to broach difficult topics, such as how to handle financial concerns. Enhanced communication and a feeling of connectivity to others also play a big part in reducing mental health concerns and suicide.
