As a result of lengthened deployments, as well as the training time spent preparing for these extended tours of duty, military personnel and their spouses often spend months living apart. This not only requires them to learn how to communicate about any issues, marital or household, but also how to maintain an emotional connection through brief, and often irregular phone calls, email, instant messaging and, in some cases, web-cam sessions.
