She married an American navy who comes home 2 months every year. But they both lived up to their expectations. One facfor I find in them is their trust in each other. When the husband is here, they go anywhere my aunt wants and the money is no object. Again, it is the trust that matters.
It is all about trust in each partner that can make a long distance relationship work. It's not that easy to see things work in the long run, but once there is that trust and the ability to control emotions, then I don't see the reason long term relationship won't lead to marriage.
