5. Leave Notes

Leave notes for one another!

This is a good piece of advice for any marriage but it is especially helpful when you are on different shifts.

It is so sweet to come home and find a note your spouse has left for you.

I did this a lot when I knew I would miss seeing my husband completely.

And I saved every one he left for me.

Even a simple note saying I love you can brighten each other’s day.

These are wonderful, definitely all true. At the moment I'm still going to school plus I have a job, while my boyfriend is in a completely different state in Army training, so it makes it hard for contact when he's on field training and we can't text or call at all, or while he's busy through the day and also the fact the Army is strict on when they can and can't leave and how far they can travel away on a weekend if they wish too.
Going through same thing right now with my bf sometimes finding time for each other can be impossible but u just have to find time esp if its worth it

Thank you for that tips, that it true
This is all so true. I go to school during the day and also have job which scheduales me whenever they want, while my boyfriend works graveyard shift every night. What works for us is that we spend any free time we have together. Making time for your significant other is a MUST.
