The USO is launching a new virtual series with Corie and Matt Weathers on how military families can stay strong while apart. Corie and Matt Weathers will share how they are keeping their military marriage strong through a season apart - as well as tips for how you can do the same.
Tools and concepts discussed during the series apply to all types of military-initiated separations; from deployments and trainings, to geo-bachelor tours, unaccompanied tours, and even third shift schedules.
Communication is the top issue couples ask for help with. We all have different types of communication styles and often that clashes into conflict and hurt. On top of that, no one teaches us how to communicate in healthy assertive ways. Instead, we grow up with passive, passive-aggressive, or aggressive examples to model. Join Matt and I as we share our challenges to communicating over the distance of a deployment and tips for how you can make improvements in your own connection with your spouse.
