I hate every second of it. i am an OTR truckers wife. and its horrible.
Me and my husband agreed he could drive otr because i was told and PROMISED repeatedly that he would be home EVERY WEEKEND! SOOO not the freaking case.
So while he is out partying it up with family and friends all over the USA (He has friends all over this country and family) i am stuck here taking care of my son and my house and I am in the military so im fighting to find sitters for those drill weekends when i have to go away.
His family doesn't like me so since he's not here anymore EVER they wont freakin help me with him. i have a 3 week training period coming up and dont have a sitter because his family is full of jerk offs. excuse my french. my husband has told me 3 times he would be home this weekend and was suposed to be home yesterday and wasn't. then today. and isn't. then tomorrow morning and once again... is NOT going to be.
He claims he doesn't have enough available hours to drive to Ohio from Tn. which is total BULL. He told me he has 14 available hours. last time i checked it only took freakin 10 n a half hours MAYBE 11 to get here. so i'm assuming he either just doesn't wanna be home or he is cheating and gonna go get his road girlfriend. So my advice to girls who's bf's or husbands or WHATEVER the guy is to you, wants to be a trucker especially OTR tell him NOOOO because it will ruin your relationship.
I am only 21 he is only 22 and we did have a good relationship but now its nothing but fighting and hang ups on calls and frustration. we cant stand each other and i dont know if i even WANT to see him anymore.
he has also changed a lot. he is more of an ASS when he is here. always telling me what to do and that i should clean this or that and not appreciating any of the stuff i do around here. nothings EVER good enough. he is a different person and i def see divorce very soon. so FYI if you actually LIKE your relationship. i wouldn't do this. you probably wont last.
i supported him and supported and supported him some more. and i've got nothing but a slap in the face for doing it. its not worth it and you dont really get much money. he only makes about 500 or 600 a week no different from a stupid factory job. and your spouse will NEVER be home and you may as well consider yourself single or in my case a single married mom.
