I'm 33 years old & my wife is a long haul trucker. We met 2 years ago a week before she left so our whole relationship has been long distance.
She is away 6 to 8 weeks at a time, and only home for one week. In the 2 years we've gotten married & got a house. I work 2 jobs to help best i can but she is the majority bread winner.
We have a great time when she's home, but somewhere around week 3 of being out we always seem to take out frustration on each other becoming defensive & arguing who has it worse in this life her or me.
She says things that hurt me because she is lonely & homesick. But the routine is wearing her down, but i suggest a local job & that's not an option due to the money being so good now.
She isolates herself & i must go on here at home best i can. I want to scream i can't handle this life anymore but i promised her i would support her.
It's getting tough though.
