As far as I know, the deployment does count for the purposes of separation, as long as the deployed party does not resume residence within the marital dwelling following deployment.
The deployment would satisfy the one year waiting period as long as one of you intended for the separation to be permanent. I am sorry to hear that you are struggling with this.

My spouse wants a divorce. I want to remain married.
My spouse is currently deployed to IRAQ for 15 months
and is hoping that the 15 month deployment will satisfy
the One year separation needed to get a divorce in NC.
I’m hoping that the 15 month deployment will not
satisfy the one year separation needed for a divorce.
My question: Does military deployment satisfy
the one year of separation/living apart for
getting a divorce?
I do not agree with divorce or the separation.
