I was wondering if any of you have had experience with this situation...
DH is deployed right now, and has yet to hear from his family. He's had a birthday since leaving, and nothing...no email, letter, care package, nada. He was in port over the weekend and I could tell on our Skype chat that he was so upset about it, though he'd never say so. They have his email address AND his mailing address, so there's really no explanation, other than they've just not done anything.
My question is, would you mention it to his family? I cannot imagine going several weeks without talking to my children, especially if they were overseas. I talk to his family regularly (well, as regularly as you really talk to in-laws, haha...) but haven't said anything because I don't want to cause a rift or drama. My in-laws can be very dramatic and I can just imagine them concocting some story about how it's my fault, or his fault, that they haven't emailed him. Should I put it out there though, even if it causes hurt feelings? I don't want DH to feel abandoned, and I can tell that's sort of how he feels.
It just makes me so sad.
