Is it a sin for a husband and wife to please themselves together online if they are in a situation of long distance for months on end until they can physically be together?

Dear Anonymous, I would say that this is considered as masturbation, the practice of self gratification. It is an unnatural way to have sexual pleasure without the actual act between husband and wife.

Is it possible for the two of you to be together during the times of separation? Where you can travel back and forth?

This maybe the answer to your problem, if at all possible! It is not good for a husband and wife to spend to much time apart from each other, it gives place for the temptations of the devil! See 1 Corinthians 7:1-6 for example 

I pray that the Lord will lead you both to an agreement in how to handle this situation!
