  1. Given any number of potential challenges in communication, it’s also a good idea to make major housing decisions before the deployment occurs. This could cover everything from commuting distance to post, style of home, lots size and shape and lots more. Discussing these things in advance, recording/taping or writing down needs and wants (and working out compromises beforehand) can smooth the process. It is also likely a good idea to spend time visiting open houses and researching neighborhoods and more to develop a sense of what you like versus what’s available in the market. The more that can be decided in advance, the easier the process for your spouse.
