I wonder if military families are more vulnerable to infidelity than even families that are separated frequently for business reasons for one simple reason: the deployed person could die; the spouse left behind could be widowed. Affairs are escapism from reality into fantasy. Although my husband was discharged long before I ever met him, I can see how fear of death or fear of losing someone to death could make a possible affair more appealing. Don't mean to scare anyone, but maybe talking about these things before deployment would help people?
