Fed Up Being a Truckers Wife
My husband and I have been married for 15 years. He recently went through the schooling to become a trucker. Getting through the training and being on the road for 6-8 weeks straight was hard enough, but now that training is over and the real life of trucking has started it sucks!!
My husband is gone 4 -6 weeks at a time. I look forward to him coming home for 2 days and feel let down when he leaves to go back on the road. When he's home, it seems he prefers drinking more than anything (and he's never been a big drinker).
Then there has become a problem of no affection, sex, nothing!! He last came home on a Friday and was gone again on Monday morning. I received 1 hug and 1 kiss from him the entire time he was home. When I ask him about it, we end up fighting and nothing gets resolved.
I have 3 kids and one has fallen into a depression and has begun counseling to help her deal with all of this. I don't really think this is the life for me or my girls.
Any thought on this I would really appreciate it.
