The problem is that I’ve heard being away for so long and constantly takes a massive toll on family and relationships. Is this really true or has it been over reacted? What about flying domestic? Is it really as bad as it’s made out to be? Thanks!

You stated, “I’ve heard being away for so long and constantly takes a massive toll on family and relationships.”
