It all depends on the injury - I've been left on crutches and pain pills after injuring my ankle while my husband was deployed. Yes - you get through it, but it still sucks, and it still hurts. Injuries and how they are dealt with (especially on a reality TV show) are not really an accurate reflection on how someone would handle the life of being a military spouse. It's a lot more than that.Originally Posted by Dogbat;2356371;
That being said, she's at a point in this process where she's wanting to be at the top of her game - and with a broken ankle it had to be hard! I'm sure if it was a single one on one dating situation, outside of the bubble, Bevin would've reacted and acted differently - however with the magnification of emotions, lack of sleep, alcohol, any medications (I'm sure she was at least on anti-inflammatories), and the inability to participate in the stuff she finds fun all adds up to being very frustrating. Frustration, lack of sleep, and vulnerability probably led up to the reaction she had in Tahoe.
There's nothing about anyone on the show that shows that they would or wouldn't be a good military spouse - nobody knows how they'll handle that until they're actually in that position. It makes some relationships and kills others - one of the most important factors is how much a person is willing to sacrifice for the person they love. The strength of the relationship is almost as important as the person's individual strength.
This is just the perspective of one Navy wife though.
