Many flying jobs require pilots to be away from home a lot.
I think sometimes this is blamed for a lot of the breakups and no doubt it helps, but other professions are worse even without the separation.
I think law enforcement is one of the worse.
It's almost unusual for people to stay married and has been like that as long as I can remember.
When I was young I saw it so much that I made up my mind it wasn't going to happen to me. I didn't get married until I was 26, in flight school.
Then to, you have to be REALLY, I mean REALLY lucky to find a person that you can like and respect and enjoy the rest of your life.
Your partner must be just as lucky.
