Sounds like you're having a rough time of it. Studying abroad is really exciting, though, and if it's for an area of study that you love and will help in your future, your husband will likely be supportive; he sounds like a supportive, wonderful husband.

I lived away from my fiance for 5 months when I studied abroad in Spain, and it was terrible and wonderful in many ways. I learned how to communicate more with my guy and how to share my life with him when he wasn't living it with me. It was really hard experiencing such wonderful things without him, and not having him there when I was having a bad day. But it's doable if you have a strong, supportive partner, which is sounds like you do.

Breathe. It'll be okay. Sometimes making sacrifices-- like living away from your husband for a while-- can strengthen your relationship in ways you wouldn't expect.

Don't try to tell me who you are; tell me who you love.

The beauty of life is, while we cannot undo what is done, we can see it, understand it, learn from it and change. So that every new moment is spent not in regret, guilt, fear or anger, but in wisdom, understanding and love.
