Roy Murray asked 5 months ago
I will be starting a new job soon that will require me to travel often. I'll be away from home for weeks at a time, and I'm not sure how to prepare for it. What can I do to make sure my relationship survives the distance?

There are a few things you can do to prepare for a long-distance work situation. First, talk to your partner about your expectations for the relationship while you're away. Set up some ground rules, such as how often you'll talk, and make sure you're both on the same page. Second, try to schedule regular visits home, even if it's just for a weekend. And finally, stay connected when you are apart by sending photos, texts, or emails.
