See Distance as Opportunity

Have you ever heard of the saying, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder?” You probably did, and if so, it would be wise to take it to heart. With your husband away most of the time, you’ll be able to better treasure your time with him when you're together. Moreover, the distance can strengthen your relationship. If you know how to live apart, living together becomes much easier.

Have Some Ground Rules

By setting ground rules, I mean that you have to state what your expectations are from each other. This should be done so that no one is taken by surprise or no one is inevitably hurt in the process. For instance, you might say to your partner that you want to talk to him at least twice a week. Let each other know what both of you want during your time away, so that you’ll each have a chance to fulfill them leading to a much better relationship.

Communicate Regularly

I can’t stress the importance of communication enough. Without communication, no relationship will have the foundation to stand on. This is why you have to keep your communication lines open with each other so that both of you can be updated with what happens to the other person. When a person knows what’s happening with you, they’ll feel more connected with you no matter how far your distance with each other is.

Be Honest With Each Other

Lies can lead to distrust and therefore, the erosion of the relationship. To make sure this doesn’t happen, it would be better if you and your partner hash out any misunderstandings that you may have. This is so resentment doesn’t build up within the relationship over time and aggravate the distance between you and your husband.
