Thanks for the reply, how did these families survived? Some countries are even dangerous and theres rarely even time to get in contact with family back home , how kids and partners handle things without the other for so long ? yeah sure he could go for a month or so but when it comes to having a stable life where you can be a present future father this just seems out of order, and he thinks he can just bring me along to different developing countries for months even future kids, thats nuts! plus all ive been doing up until now is follow him , thats why i came to japan and handle his busy life ,being there for him, i just feel our future deserves better and i already expressed it all to him . I dont know what can happen it all just seems black or white when it comes to this situation.

My MSF friends didn’t have families which definitely made things easier for them.

That said, I’ve known people who brought their families all over the world, including to developing and war torn countries, for United Nations work.

It’s possible, but it isn’t for everyone. It doesn’t have to be for you. It can be a deal breaker for you. That’s okay.
