My boyfriend is a corrections officer: any advice on how to support and deal with his schedule?

Opinions on: being in a relationship with a man who has a crazy schedule and not much time for anything else. Does anyone out there understand what I’m talking about?

My husband is an AD Marine and has been for over 15 years. He has spent the past 20 months out of 32 months deployed to Iraq. You can make any relationship work despite their schedule. Especially since your boyfriend is stateside, trust me your relationship is doable. He is home, you got it pretty good. We still find time on R&R and in-between deployments, work and training to maintain our relationship and friendship. The key is time maintenance and equal respect and dedication from both partners’

Stay busy with your own interest. (Career and education). Try to find out days where you both can schedule a day off or two to enjoy some time together.

Like I said, you got it good. Try year+ deployments and then you will understand why I say your relationship is 100% doable with him stateside.

  1. This really has nothing to do with politics and government. I’m sure there’s a category more suited for it elsewhere.

  3. Oh, i am so sorry. When your boyfriend beats and maims you, there is plenty of shelters you can stay at.

  4. Being patient and understanding goes a very long way though sometimes it’s much easier said than done. Also, if you and he do have a disagreement, try not say "Dont talk to me like I’m one of your prisoners". This comment is SURE to prolong the arguement. Good Luck.
