need advice and suggestion about seperation via OTR trucking
I am a wife of a truck driver that is new at it & you all know that they go out on the road & are gone for long periods of time.
Well I was in a department store & applied for the store credit card & the clerk asked me marital status & I told her married & when she got to the part about what my husband did & I told her truck driver.
I was shocked at her answer which was Honey, you are not married, you are separated & I replied back yeah only due to the job & she then told me let me allow you on a little secret & that was, she said that I may be married but while these guys are on the road they are married in name only.
She told me she was the voice of experience because she was married to one & she told me that if my husband was to cheat, he won't tell me & I told her no one in their right mind is going to tell their spouse oh I am out there cheating on you.
But anyhow whoever I run into that I know ask me hey how is the single life & how does it feel to be alone & finally have time to yourself.
And they always say don't ever judge a book by its cover, well lately at the office my co-workers are telling me that my new status is making me look happier, that I should leave him permanently.
It's funny because mentally I am not feeling happy that he is gone but I adjust by keeping myself busy & we talk on the phone several times a day, tell each other we love each other & don't fight on the phone.
If there are wives out there that can tell me if they had this same situation & dealt with it, I am open to suggestions & advice.
