Supporting Your Soldier | Army Wife Life

Biggest part of being an army wife is having to go through his share of courses and exams. They will come and go and sometimes your husband won't even let you know how much he has to deal with. Here is your biggest test of being a support system for your spouse. Sometimes you cannot overlook, avoid and be ignorant. You will all but be a part of his daily struggles and you have take it with a stride. 

Try to stay connected

Many times we make it difficult for oversells when our husband don't share their workload with us. It could be because it might upset you or that he thinks you wouldn't understand. So do a little research and find out what he is studying and how much time he actually needs to spend with his books. Although you really don't need to actually read anything unless you have an interest in military history. There are several senior army wives who would love to share their part of having gone through the same ordeal. 

Stay with him

Many army wives do opt to stay out of their husband's way while they study but this doesn't have to be the case always. Make sure you are with him giving him your shoulder to rely on when he is tired and fed up of his study routine. When you feel its time for him to carry on, on his own, make sure you don't leave a chaos behind. Leave in good loving terms and do not expect him to make a call every three hours to make you feel secure. 

Make your own circle of support

Make sure that you have a few friends around you too. Despite being there for your husband, you would need a place to vent out your own frustrations and hopes. This is where you would rely on women who really understand you. Make a routine for yourself if you don't work. Walking or picking up a sport if best to work some sweat out. 

Once done, do not forget to celebrate together because this is your time now and you deserve all the attention for being an awesome wife!
