Learning to be alone as a truckers wife
(Fowlerville, Mi, USA)
My husband and I
I love my husband and his job as a trucking is ruining our marriage. It feels like I am a widow who can never move on.
Sex is a major problem for me. My husband is gone 2-3 months and feels extremely uncomfortable with phone sex. So that leaves me to fend for myself.
I hate to admit that this means that I have kissed other men (not had sex with though) in an attempt to feel loved and wanted.
My husband and I have gotten past this, but still have difficulty showing our love to each over the long distances.
Plus I do everything around the house! Mow the lawn in the summer, shovel the drive in the winter, maintenance for the car, take care of the finances, you name it and I do it!
The worst is at nights when I am SOOOO lonely and miss his warmth against me.
This has been the most difficult time of my life. Still, I am proud of my husband for doing what he needs to do in order to take care of our family.
