Hubby and I are kind of in one. He travels for work for weeks to months at a time. And only is able to come home for a weekend here and there. We make it work bc we love and trust each other. If you don't have a strong relationship then it will not work. And if you don't really take the time to nurture and grow the relationship it won't work.
Awww that is so cute. That shows the trust and love. That's what I'm in at the moment and won't be moving out to my boyfriend till Feb. we been in this long distant relationship for awhile now. It gets stressful at times but the calls and web camming makes it all better. We are so old school too. We love to take the time and write letters to each other and mail them and just wait till we get our letters. Its so fun to do
I think they are very hard. twice in our marriage my husband's job has created a soirritation where we have had to.live hours apart for months at as time. It is difficult for us, and all but impossible for the kids.
I think it depends on the couple. I met my husband playing euchre on yahoo. We would see each other every weekend by alternating weekends to see each other (I would drive to him one weekend, he would drive to me the following weekend). We ended up moving in together six months later and have now been married 12 years (well, on Dec 22nd it will be 12 years). Personally, I wouldn't be able to do the long distance relationship for a long period of time because I need that person with me.
