"undefined dreams"

(Benton harbor mi)

My future husband wants me to go to trucking school so that we can be a husband and wife team. I have been thinking about it but i really have a lot of responsibility with my home.

He also wants us to start our own trucking business so we can make a lot of cash. thing is to me we are not spring chickens anymore and i love to come home everyday and enjoy my home. i love him very much but he doesn't seem to want to compromise.

I'm willing to drive a truck locally so i can still take care of the home front. i also don't see very well at night and the thought of waking up in a different state everyday is scary to me.I know he works hard and i admire him for that. I told him we should do our research before we just jump into that.

I know there is money to be made but i also know trucks aren't cheap and the overhead could possibly overwhelming. point is, his dream is not my dream but I am willing to work with him if he will do the same what should i do?

Unless you are an owner/operator, there is no money to be made in trucking! They get paid PENNIES a mile & cost them DOLLARS to survive out there on the road! This is the worst job to have!

Hi, Smokie,

I responded in full to your question on this page of our site:

If you decide to become a professional truck driver, my husband Mike and I wish you safe travels and lots of money saving opportunities on the road.

Best regards,
Vicki Simons
