My fiance is not in the military, he is in the Peace Corps. So we are dealing with the same kind of separation right now. He left about two weeks ago and I'm moving to the same country he's in because I was lucky enough to find a job there (you can only live/move with your peace corps spouse if you are also a PCV). We most likely won't be living in the same city, but the same country is better than continents apart.
I'm trying to plan as much as I can before I go in one month because I know it will be difficult to plan a wedding (early 2015) from overseas. Has anyone on here had to do something like this? Have you attempted to plan a wedding in your hometown while in another country or while your partner is in another country?
If any of you had long engagements, did it feel like people didn't take you seriously when you tried to start planning?
Also, can someone give me advice on how to cope with missing their partner? I know it's only for another month, but I got sad over Thanksgiving and I'm worried Christmas will be a real tough one
