Scared about the next two years - he'll be gone

by Rachel

I've been married for nine months and he's been a manager at Wendy's the whole time, but I knew he really wanted to be a trucker. He already had his CDL before I met him but he couldn't use it because he broke his back and no one would hire him.

He finally found someone who would hire him but he's going to be gone two years, only coming back on holidays. I'm terrified.

I've look around the internet a lot the past few days and I can't find anyone else in my position. Most trucker's wives are seeing their husbands at least once a month.

I've already been handling our finances because that's what I'm good at and we live in an apartment so I won't have to worry about fixing broken appliances, I'm just worried about the loneliness.

I don't know what to do to keep our brand-new marriage from falling apart. I 100% support him, I just don't know what to do.
