I'm not sure where to start. I met my truckin husband January of 2010 and married July of 2010, yes we only knew each other for 6 months before we married. I have an amazing relationship with him except the fact that he's otr for the most part.

We live in Illinois and I have to say this is one of the hardest things I've had to deal with in my entire life however; as crazy as it sounds I wouldn't trade it for anything. I'm here to chat with other people that understand the situation and maybe get some advice to making it easier. I have a facebook and if you want to add me my email is

I met my fiance on st patties day 2011, we are planning to be married in september. I really thought being a trucker's girlfriend/wife was going to be easy. But it's the hardest thing I've ever done! Does it ever get easier? Does the loneliness ever fade?? Just a little bit? Please feel free to email me at thank you soo much!!!!
