Was your wife married to you the entire time you were in the military? If not, how long were you married while you served?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
yes. We separated twice at her request.

What kind of separations were they? Were those legal separations - in other words, one or the other of you went into Court and obtained an order of separation? If so, what state were those in, and how long was the separation?
