A new life as a trucker's wife

My husband and I have been together two years now, and the last two years have been so hard. I never thought I could handle being a wife of a truck driver.

I have lived on the road with him for six months til we finally got a house. I'm still learning myself how too deal with me missing him so much, but it does get easier as time goes on.

I just want to also so a big thank you too all the truckers out there, men and women.

I know how you feel. My husband went from just being gone m-f and home on the weekends to OTR driver out of MT.....we live in NYS. In the beginning it was really hard as he was out for 4-6 weeks at a time, Once he was out for 2 whole months. It got easier though thank God! one of the things we do faithfully is talk at least 2-4 hours a day. He calls me when I get home from work and before I go to work. This has made it easier for me to adjust. we got marries in May of 2008 and he began the MT job (Montana) in Sept of 2008......sooner than I thought it would be. Took a lot of getting used to but all is good now. Hang in there and just keep communicating with each other
