We have been married for 22 years this month and have spent probably 5 or 6 years apart all together. As long as you are able to communicate daily and visit occasionally, you should be able to get through it fine.

I don't enjoy the separations too much, especially the long ones, but it really is fun to anticipate his coming home and then for us to catch up on all that missed time He is due home from his latest trip in about 15 days and I can't wait! (4 months this time)

Go for it.

Money will be handy, getting US work experience on the resume is always handy and it's hardly a couple of months so no time at all. Might be different if you had kids, but if you don't you'd be daft not to take the opportunity.

Agree. Try being apart for 5+ years!

Take the job. I worked as a camp counselor for 4 years . My friend met her husband at camp as well.She is American. He is from the UK . They lived in the states for a few years but then moved to the UK about 15 years ago. She now goes back to work as the camp nurse and her kids are campers. I was acounselor from 85-88 and I'm still friend s with several counselors from the UK and the US. Work is scarce . I swould go for it!

Take the job, I have had many separations from my husband (married 11 yrs almost) the first few where easier, that may sound funny but although you are in that first flush of love and lust, you aren't used to them being around, I had to spend 8 weeks away from hubby and kids this year and it was awful, yet years ago we went months without seeing each other, if you can afford it, buy a laptop or enquire at the camp if they have computers that do Skype, it really meant alot to me to see my family when away and better still free, and you can contact you UK family this way too, bonus!

I appreciate all of the replies, thank you very much.

If anyone is looking to have a spousal break for a few weeks I can enquire with my employer...! lol.
