I Married the War investigates the lives of eleven women who fought for their marriages, their families, and their husbands, veterans of WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan. The story delves into the choices they make as they are confronted with the lasting impacts of their spouses’ mental and physical wounds. We begin to understand the heavy toll this takes on these women as their husbands fight nightmares, rage, hyper-vigilance, memory loss, substance abuse, survivor’s guilt, and moral injury. Alone, untrained and unprepared, each woman must learn to adapt, to become the front-line resource for her warrior. As in all wars, there is victory, and there is defeat. Anyone living with a loved one who has experienced major trauma will find they are not alone.
