There is often a shared purpose among military couples, and yet, their unique experiences can contribute to additional challenges or feelings of loneliness. The nature of military service, marked by deployments, frequent relocations, and extended periods of separation, can intensify stress or the sense of isolation for both partners. Below, Cohen Veterans Network shares #MilitaryLessonsInLove: tips, resources, and support to enhance connectedness and strengthen your relationship.
