    I Love My Husband

    It takes a very special person to be married to a truck driver or anyone with a job that takes him/her away from their family for an extended amount of time. When I was a teen, my mother’s friend was married to a man in the Navy. Every time her husband was away for an extended...

    I am married to a truck driver he has just

    started a new job. So I do not know how long he will be out before I get to see him again but I assume it will be around 2 weeks. This times are hard for me I fight depression and PTSD on a normal basis without him gone but with him gone it is much worse.

    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.       ...
