So, my wife grew up in an expat lifestyle and is gone for 2-3 months a year visiting her divorced parents, in separate parts of the world and spread out over the year, for a month at a time. We've been married for almost ten years with two kids and also lived abroad for 5 years while having kids. My wife and kids are phenomenal, beautiful, brilliant, and amazing.

Now, we're settled in a spot where I'm an executive at a large company. She is a stay at home mom, focusing on being a great mom to the kids and keeping healthy with countless hours of athletic activities. Can't imagine much more I can do, she's got it made in my book.  I'm busy as hell and have no time for anything but the family, gym, and work. When they leave, a huge part of the life we've built is gone... coming home to an empty house, other than the dog, is miserable.

When she's gone, we fight about communication... amongst a thousand other things.

How do you best deal with the removal of the people you care about most? I'm curious because I want to handle this better, and I want to provide constructive advice for how we can best manage their time away...

It needs to get better when they are gone, because its a problem that isnt going away...

I am a bit confused. Can you clarify what is the actual problem you want advice for?
