Married and Unmarried Partners What you Need To Know

As the new year approaches, my partners training as a WE at Collingwood is also coming to an end which only means that his depart to Faslane is another day closer.
We are both young and have been laughed at for thinking that we can 'last'.
I am close with his family and I know socialising with them will help but I'm non stop between my degree and work. I am wondering if there is any good advice with coping with him moving over 400 miles away and seeing him less.
Any advice will greatly be appreciated. :)

You're not the first and you won't be the last to go through this! Whether you DO come through it is entirely up to both of you. I would suggest that it is MUCH easier to keep in touch these days, with that interweb thing, Skippy phone calls and these mobile things.

A lot of us had to make do with call boxes (ask your parents!) and writing letters. Imagine - we even had to wait a week or so to see our photos!!

You should be able to get up to Faslane to see him - despite what folk say, the area is stunningly beautiful, though it has been known to rain sometimes. Or meet up in Glasgow for a weekend - again - a wonderful vibrant city.

Good luck!

Thank you, I really appreciate it.
Faslane does look like a beautiful place (from what I’ve seen).

Call boxes and letters! I’ve been prone to use them

I really appreciate the kind words!

If Scotland had a bum (can't use naughty words in this forum!) it would be in Faslane! I'm allowed to say that as I have been based there plenty and I'm also a local! However, the local area (outside the wire) as said, is stunning.

Having said that Faslane is dire, it really isn't too bad if you are interested or partake in ANY sport - the opportunities are all there to be taken. Just tell him to watch out for the Reg staff, all of whom appear to take out their hatred of being drafted to Faslavatory on the submariners. Beware 'the tunnel'.......

The tunnel is shut now SB, the fashion police have to hide elsewhere.
