What It Is Really Like To Be a Truckers Wife
I was a military wife, he got out, now I am a trucker wife. He has been a trucker for about twelve years. I seemed to raise our daughters on my own. This was the life I signed up for so you learn to adjust.
Going into this you have to understand that you will not always be celebrating birthdays, Christmas, Thanksgiving, anniversaries, etc...,you learn to understand this.
I know I have a caring, loving husband. We have been married for over thirty-three years. I treasure the days he is home off the road. He hauls chemicals and his company he works for will not allow the spouse to ride with the truck.
Don't go into this career thinking you will get rich. My husband thought that at first. By the time you make the truck payment, insurance, and repairs it does not leave much. My husband likes the fact that he does not have somebody standing over his shoulder checking his work. He enjoys seeing the country. He drives coast to coast and has been in all of states.
Ladies you have to learn to be a strong woman to be a truckers wife. Hope you have what it takes, mainly lots of prayers for safety.
