PHOENIX -- One Arizona couple is celebrating Memorial Day Weekend by finally enjoying their honeymoon.
James and Jobina Hill have been married for a little more than a year, but have spent the majority of their married life apart from one another.
“We got married and then he deployed a couple weeks later,” Jobina said.
James was stationed in Afghanistan for a year, but just recently returned to the Valley.
James admitted that their first year as husband and wife was difficult, but added that it’s only helped to strengthen their relationship.
“First year’s supposed to be the best one, but this was really tough. If we can get through this, we can get through anything after this,” James said.
Jobina is just happy to have her husband home.
“Now the real honeymoon begins,” she stated.
