    Not Just a Job...

    Truck driving affects the whole family, not just the man or woman behind the wheel.  My husband was a truck driver when we met, and still is.  When we talked about our future together I told him I could handle him being away but I didn't want it to be that way...

    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...

    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...

    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.       ...

    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...
