Husband Became Mean After Becoming Truck Driver?

by Mariah

Hey guys, I don’t know who to really go to for this, as I don’t know any other trucker wives or really anyone related to the career at all.


He used to be pretty nice before he went into truck driving, now he’s downright mean. He snaps at me all the time, and will yell at me almost every time I ask him a question.

I’m a full time student and raising our kids, but he says that he does so much and makes it sound as if I do nothing at all.

He’s usually nice a majority of the time when he’s home, but that’s maybe one day a week.

I don’t know what to do, nor who to turn to. Anyone have any experience with this?

Mean husband
by: Marcy

If you can talk to him on a nice day and ask if he likes his job. He may not be happy trucking and is afraid to say anything. You know they must be strong etc.

Another thing he may not be getting enough sleep. He could also be depressed which may be the reason for his being nasty. Medication from family doctor could help with this.

You just need to try to get him to talk. Good Luck!

Video record his ridiculous behaviou
by: Hervy

Record his behavior until you have about 3 examples. Then have a conversation about how his attitude has changed and is not acceptable.

Of course talking to a marriage counselor about this could help as well if he will go.

If there is anyone that has witnessed his change of behavior then you can include them on the meeting about his behavior much like an intervention.

Best of luck with this
