    My Marriage To A Truck Driver

    First of all I just want to say, I LOVE my husband so much!  I just feel as if I am the only one who makes any effort while he's on the road.  I have to be the one who calls or texts or sends messages on the computer.  Most of the time he won't even respond then!  I just want...

    20+ Years

    I have been married to a trucker for over 20 years and they are a breed of their own. If you aren't a strong person on your own without him around, the chances of you being able to handle him being gone for very long aren't very good.       ...

    5 Years

    I guess I'm one of the lucky ones because my trucker husband is home every night. He gets up at midnight and most nights gets home around 6pm, sometimes earlier, sometimes later. He's in bed by 7:30. I wonder sometimes if it would be easier if he was on the road for a couple...

    It's Been 4 Weeks Now

    And it looks like he won't be back for at least another couple weeks.  If I had to summarize how I'm feeling at this point it would be lonely, resentful, overwhelmed and depressed.  My ex-husband had strange hours where he works and was not home as much as I would've...
