The purpose of this study was to explore the emotions experienced by Indian military wives during deployment/ field posting induced separation and to gain insight into how they made sense of this experience. In-depth interviews were conducted with 24 military wives whose husbands were deployed field areas, in order to get a deeper understanding of their lives.
