Trucker Wife To Be

by Maria
(Mississippi )

My man and I have been together for two years. We've gotten through a lot of difficult times together and I know without a shadow of a doubt that I want to spend the rest of my life with him. We have made plans to get married in 2016 but are moving 10 hours away so I can pursue my own dreams.

He has always been supportive of my endeavors and is one of the most loving and caring men I've ever met. We are in the process of moving and he has recently told me that he wants to do this. He doesn't really have any other reason except it's good money and he could see the country..

My initial reaction is we had always talked about seeing the world together... Does he really want to do that without me? And If we are moving so far away from our families I don't want him to be gone all the time and leave me alone in an unfamiliar place where I know absolutely no one.

Granted, I can make friends, and I can stay busy.. But what's the point of a soul mate if half of you is always going to be gone? I hate the thought of it. I want to be supportive but I really don't know if I can be. Any advice?

Wow that last comment was harsh. I do have to say though that there are a lot of Infidelities on both sides husband and wife. I've had people tell me my Boyfriend probably has "Lot Lizards" every trip and damn that might be true but he claims no way that they are prostitutes and it is disgusting so I choose to believe and have trust in him. I am not going to even tell you that this is easy because every day has it's new challenges and I shed a lot of tears all the time. If you are not prepared to only see him maybe 34 hours per week on his reset (if that) then I suggest you open the lines of communication for possibly making a change in your life. I don't suggest going out and finding someone else until you are separated or better yet divorced - that isn't fair. Best of luck to you both!

Yeah leave! OTR truck drivers are gone 2-3 months or longer on the road before getting about 3-4 days home time! When the wheels stop rolling, the pay stops too! When the truck breaks down & it is in the shop for possibly close to a week you only get breakdown pay of $50.00 a day! I am fed up with the trucking lifestyle so I am doing what suits me to make myself happy & I am leaving my trucking husband! I am a nurse working in the ER & I have met another nurse in the ER & he makes me a hell of a lot happier than my trucking husband! Hey, they find women out there to talk to, etc, so what is good for the goose is good for the gander! Good luck!
