My husband has been offered a great opportunity through his work but it means he will need to move 1.5hours away.
We have worked it all out and can afford for him to rent and set up a second household and work is chipping in a small relocation package to help get things moving along.
He will only be 1.5hours up the road (he in toowoomba, me in brisbane) and will drive home friday arvos and back monday mornings, and maybe once a month I will go to him for the weekend, but I know that I am going to miss him immensely
I know some peoples partners work away for 2 or 3 weeks some times longer at a time and I shouldnt be whinging because he is only going to be gone 4 days and if I need him in a hurry it wont take him long to get home, but he is the only family I have (and FIL) and we havent been apart in the 5.5 years we have been together.
What is the best way to deal with the distance and those lonely nights without him? How do you all do it for weeks at a time?
Is it likely to put strain on our relationship?? we are pretty strong as a couple and compliment each other well (people always comment how connected and in tune we are )
