I recently had a reader contact me about living the geo-bachelor lifestyle. She was in a committed relationship with a military member, but had some doubts about being able to sustain a long-distance relationship when he travels to a remote assignment. After his remote, his orders show he will not be returning to the same base, and this will affect their relationship greatly. She asked, “Do I stay or do I go?”
Through our conversations, I learned that she had been given advice from everyone: her family, her friends, the random cashier at Target. Everyone she came in contact with had an opinion about her relationship. Mostly, negative.
I realized, through her story, that I, too, have found myself in similar situations. Where I had to decide if I stay or if I go (and leave my husband). How did I ultimately decide what was best for me? Read on.
