Military life comes with all kinds of difficulties that most people never have to experience. In addition to the rigorous training and no-nonsense lifestyle, servicemen and servicewomen often have to leave their loved ones for months at a time when deployed. Even if they are not deployed overseas, military families are constantly having to uproot their lives after being stationed somewhere else, meaning that children have to leave behind their schools and spouses have to leave behind their friends. All of these tribulations can take their toll on a marriage, and some marriages end in divorce as a result.
For anyone, being separated from one's partner, children or parents is likely to be a difficult emotional experience. However, for those San Antonio residents serving in the military and their families, separation is often a way of life.
Divorces can be complicated intersections of emotions and law. As many of us know in San Antonio, things can get even more complicated when a divorce involves a member of the U.S. military.
Military life can be rough on family life and require great personal sacrifice for all involved. Sometimes, that personal sacrifice is more than some can take and families suffer as a result. In one former Texas based Sergeant's case, that personal sacrifice led to great suffering, even greater joy, and unfortunately has also resulted in another family's unintentional suffering as well.
While many of us in Texas have never thought that Facebook and other social media sites would be a source of contention for a divorce proceeding, as those social centers grow in popularity, they expand the legal complexities associated with these difficult relationships. Solving the dilemma is also not as easy as 'de-friending' or 'blocking' somebody either.
