In this video I respond to a post made about trucking being the worse career.
I do acknowledge that trucking gives opportunity and my affect the self esteem in ways that could negatively affect the relationship.

Of course, I also offer some suggestions on how to make a relationship work in trucking just like many couples have done.
I can tell you right now it starts with getting on the same page about the future of the relationship, family plans and how trucking plays a part.
For example, trucking doesn't have to be for a lifetime. You can plan to transition out of it.
No matter what plans you come up with together, it gives both of you something to work toward and also gives you an opportunity to bond and become even closer.
Kind of makes it hard to drift away from the relationship like that.
