    New, inquisitive&in need of a little support!

    Hi guys im new here, I was pummelling through the internet and came across this forum and it seems perfect for my questions&you all seem like lovely people so thought id throw a few FAQs out there on others experience if thats ok. (Double vodka&lemonade please!)

    My OH and I have been together for 9 months now (knowing in advance he was joining the royal engineers but I was too smitten to care from day 1)

    Im so proud of him and have already weighed up the consequential sides of things that will come with our relationship which im accepting of, I want him to be successful and happy as does he which I admire him for, im totally rooting for him to grab life by the throat and make the most of it; but on my behalf I was curious as to who on here has been with there OHs since prior to joining and how it worked out, particularly at quite a young age, if theres anything I can do to help him during his phase 1&2 and any advice that I might benefit from to help ease the sorrow whilst the days get longer, as of now will be the first time from seeing him almost daily to not seeing him for 7 weeks so this is new to me and thought who better to ask than people who have experience. Hes started phase 1 today.

    Good and bad id like to hear and just looking for a bit of guidance really as cant seem to find much on the subject, hence ive already spent hours sieving through google haha. Looking for any expectations, advice and just general info on how to be as good a partner as possible.

    Don't expect too much from him because training will break him. He will be really tired, at times emotional, not wanting to continue, etc.

    Keep yourself busy. Write to him. Sound chirpy.
