    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...

    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...

    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...

    I love my husband and I love the career he chose. At first it was very rough for me being young and not understanding all that was in front of me. I was a young woman with my first child when it all began and I suffered mentally. I really didn't know what to do with myself, being...

    20+ Years

    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...

    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...
