My wife doesn't talk to me anymore

by Cam

I'm a new otr driver. I've been driving 48 for 9 months now. I drive for 4 weeks and I'm home for a few days (3-4). For the first few months my wife and I would chat every day. She would tell me how much she misses/loves me and vice versa. Buy phone or text depending on my signal strength, even Skype a couple of times.

The past month or two we've hardly spoken. I'll try to call and get the "your call has been forwarded to an automatic message system" I'll text and she'll say something like, "sorry my phone was in the other room." Or, "I'm about to get in the shower." Buy that's it. No attempt at calling or messaging me back.

I'll text her, or send a picture, usually of our dog I take with me doing something cute, or whatever, she'll reply with a"lol" or something, and that's it. I let it go for 2-3 days, without a single word. When I try to talk to her about it, she gets defensive and responds with, "it goes both ways." Funny my Lane seems to be the only one that's open. I don't know what happened.

This all started out of no where. I can trace back to the day. It wasn't gradual at all. She doesn't have a job, she says she's been looking and applying for work, but for some reason, I don't believe her anymore. The money I make is enough to pay our bills, but not much else.

She spends $200 a week on groceries, I'm usually left with $40-$60 sometimes I'm lucky enough to have $100, which she spends some of.

Any sound advice would be appreciated.

I'm making .35 per mile I'm getting a better job more than double the pay, and double the home time. Just waiting on my truck. And we're gonna have a long chat when I get home. Ultimatums will be set.
