Hi, I am completely new to this and wondered if there was anyone out there that can help with coming to terms with my husbands leaving to work away for such a long time. Anyone else in this same situation? We have been married for twenty seven years and still love each other, though our relationship recently has not been that brilliant given the recent announcement of working away. We have two children (not really children 17 and 25 but still at home, however, 25 year old leaving soon, then 17 year old going to university next year after A levels, so will be leaving too) My husband previously worked away 10 years ago and was away for three weeks maximum, I hated it and remember how lonely at times I felt all of the emotions have recently come flooding back. At that time I had the children to keep me busy. This time they have grown and fear that life will become more lonely and unbearable and this has become out of my control. It is not really what I want for the rest of our time together. What should I do to try and deal with this, should I deal with this? Harbouring some resentment right now. what do you think?
