Hello! I have been married to my husband for 5 1/2 months, so we are newly weds. When my husband and I were engaged and dating we talked about how he would want to get his CDL. I knew that would consist of going OTR.

Hubby has been working dead end job(s) his whole life. I don’t want to hold him back from going OTR and getting his CDL because of my fears and worries. Maybe these concerns are dumb but I want to list them out because I want to know if I have any reason to be scared.

1. Lot Lizards...I trust my husband and I know he wouldn’t cheat on me. But the thought of prostitutes being around my husband makes me anxious and scared. Does this happen often? Should I really be worried?

2. Being separated...I do get lonely by myself and we just moved to Indiana at the end of November 2018. I don’t have any friends here yet, but I do work full time as a nanny and could keep myself busy with work. We don’t have kids, so I wouldn’t raise any children “on my own” but I’m just worried about being alone! How do women cope with that?

3. Is going OTR worth it to get your CDL? Or would we be better off paying for school out of pocket? I know he wants this so I want to make it possible either way.

This isn’t something my husband and I are for sure doing but I definitely think it’s headed in this direction! Can you please give me some insight? I would really appreciate it. I just want to be supportive of my hubby. :) thanks.
