Hello, I am a wife of a Trucker for 28yrs., and a mother of 4 adult children and 6 grandchildren.

I spend a lot of time at home. I have an in_home childcare to keep me busy. I used to travel with my husband until i realized i was doing it for him and not myself.

I have severe motion sickness that i tried to ignore for years. So I stay busy at home so i dont have to go, but every now and then my husband tries to steal me away, but to no avail because i cant leave the kids!!!

I like my husband being on the road, I always have because he went from spending three plus years in prison to truck driving, so i guess im used to the absence, space, and distance.

I have been with this man since i was thirteen years of age and while he was in prison or over the road i became very independent and pretty much grew out of him.

Now days we, I bicker a lot but once he leaves i'm fine. We dont believe in divorce so we stay together. But honestly i wish i knew how to spark his flame.

It seems that every thing he needs is in that truck. When he is home he catches up on sleep. When he is on the road we talk nicely on the phone< it is a greatttt!!!! distant relationship.

Sharing your story with BBC Worldwide NEW
by: Marshall James


We at BBC Worldwide Productions (makers of Dancing with the Stars & TopGear) are producing a documentary about couples and relationships, focusing on stories of how people make relationships work even in the face of challenges. I thought the unique situation of a spouse constantly on the road would offer interesting perspective in making a successful relationship.

I would love a chance to chat with you more; please write me at Marshall.James@bbcaproduction.com or by phone at 818-253-1602. I look forward to hearing your story!
