Military.com reports that husbands who's wives are in the military face additional challenges to being a military spouse. On base, many times there are "military wives" groups from which the husbands feel excluded. They also have a harder time relating to the women who's husbands are deployed. It may be because of this lack of support that civilian husbands are twice as likely to divorce their military wives than couples who's husbands are away.
The article says it may be a more in depth reason than that. Civilian men have to come to terms that their wives are going off to war while they stay home and watch the kids. That for men may be more of a pride thing than a lack of support issue.
What do you think can be done to help husbands of military women cope with their wives deployment?
