Sobering Facts about Military spouses:
The daily trials and tribulations of being a spouse and a parent are well known and globally experienced. The stress, the worry, the planning. Imagine on top of that, being forced to move every two or three years at a moment’s notice; being constantly underemployed or overqualified in your job; not having your significant other with you for holidays or birthdays or even the birth of your child, NEVER knowing what tomorrow will bring.
This is the real life for the over 1 million active duty and selected reserve military spouses in the United States. Considering that 80% of all active duty and selected reserve families have children and 73% of those under the age of five, the life of a military spouse is particularly stressful, uncertain, mostly overwhelming, and always chaotic.
Of the more than 600,000 active duty military spouses:
40% of military families have been separated from their loved one for six months or more in the last 18 months.
32% of military families have been separated from their service member for 4 or more years since 9/11/2001.
24% of military spouses have been diagnosed with depression – 50% higher than the national average.
