Makes me think about generations past where the men went off to war and the women were left behind, just waiting and wondering if they would ever come back at all. Thousands of relationships like this worked and many fell by the wayside as well.
I also can't help thinking about those contemporary couples where one partner serves in the Armed Forces, or maybe has a posting overseas; or who constantly travels out of town as a driver or sales rep for instance. There are so many jobs which keep people apart these days. I have a friend whose husband was in the Navy. She brought up her children more or less without him while he went to sea for six months at a time. When he retired (at about 40), he joined the Police Force and again, became a husband on call. His wife said she really happy about this as although she loved to see him, she had grown used to doing her own thing and found he interfered and got in the way when he was home to the extent she was always pleased to see him off again.
I imagine there are lots of shift workers who feel like they are living somewhere different from their partners. Some couples seldom share interests or friends. Some people spend their home time on the computer. Even in marriage, look at all the work and sports widows and widowers.
In the end it's quality of time rather than quantity of time that creates na intimate relationship that both parties value enough to want to hold on to. More about Long Distance Relationships
Thanks for the tickets Get Frank. Went to see this last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. After the first twenty minutes when it seemed all up hill, I was totally sucked into the beauty of Spain and think that at say 10 to 15 kms a day, I could probably manage this walk. Apparently you can set off from anywhere - usually a maximum distance of 800kms but more often 100 or 400kims. The film itself was made in the forty days it took the crew to walk from a village in the Pyranees.
For some guys, this movie might be a bit slow moving with very limited action. The mood is gentle and intimate - just like you would imagine a pilgrimage of this sort rather than a Hollywood hyped up version. It really is as much about the participants personal inner journeys as much as their physical journey. Sheen was pretty good in the lead role and it was a happy surprise for me to have James Nesbit appear half way through. If you feel like a time-out, relaxing and inspirational sort of movie, then this will do the trick. More about Win a Double Pass to The Way
