She does bug when she just gets sarcastic for no reason...when Dave is merely trying to point out something to be corrected -- and is right.
She does do that. Quite a bit.
This works for them, I don't really see a huge problem with their relationship. i think it would be so hard to be on this race with my DH. We get along great, but repeated and prolonged stress would definitely cause some bickering and short tempers with us. I would not do this race with him (nor would he with me, lol), yet we're happily married 28 years.
Being a former military spouse myself, my DH was often gone for weeks and months at a time. It is hard to adjust to being back together and having to compromise and give and take and consider someone other than yourself (in a relationship sort of way). You get used to not dealing with that. They jumped into the race pretty fast after he came back. I would never have recommended that, but I think they seem to be doing fine.
