I have been married to a truck driver for nine years. It has been a living he'll. He has been a company driver in the past and came home a few days throughout the week.
It was horrible because he was tired and yelled at me after trying to wake him up for over an hour. Later down the road he became an owner operator and is only home two days a month.
I beg him to get off the road or already find a more balanced situation because I need him in my life more after having stillbirth.
He refused and I became psychotic features. He knew there was something wrong with me but did nothing but yell at me for not filling out a loan document for him while he was on the road.
I was on the edge of life and death while he hopped up in to his Peterbuilt said something about the best paying load ever and he was gone and so was my will to live this fake marriage to an absentee husband and father to our eight year old.
The job is worth it to get a family out of dire straights but choosing a career driver with workaholic traits will destroy your life as well as your children's lives.
