Hello everyone; I am posting this thread as I find myself a little lost and not sure how do deal with a situation. In 5 weeks I am being deployed on a Canadian Warship for a 6 to 7 month deployment. My problem is that my wife on a year and a half has become very depressed lately and refuses to talk about her problems. This has been causing some problems with our marriage as communication has almost ceased. I have tried talking to my friends about the matter but as most of the are also in the military their replies usually involve getting divorced and finding a new woman overseas. I now understand why none of my friends are married. My chain of command has also been of no assistance as I was told that them preparing for the trip was taking precedence and they had no time to attempt to do anything to help. I know that a lot of people here are in the military (and maybe some of you are in the Canadian Forces) and what I need to know is how you guys would react in a situation like this. I've tried everything I can think of and I am just about at the end of my rope. I hope this is posted in the right forum. Thanks in advance for your time guys.
