Every Woman Deserves to Be Treated Like a Queen

by Angel

Look just because your husband is a trucker doesn't mean you have to deal with the bull.

Go back to work, get a sitter. Get some time off and pamper yourself. No woman should be in a relationship like this.

We are 21 century woman. Why are you gonna live like this? Dump his butt and move on to a better life.

Every woman deserves to be treated like a queen. Just because he is a trucker doesn't mean you have to do all this back home.

About the person, not a trucker or spouse
by: Anonymous

Like or hate what I have to say but sometimes I think we're blaming all truckers or all their spouses when really we need to look at each individually.

Sometimes people change when a long term relationship is established. My husband, who just happens to be a trucker has obsessive compulsive personality disorder, not to be confused with obsessive compulsive disorder. I had no clue. We were in a relationship several years before it started coming out. It has come out big now. He has control of all the finances. I am not on his bank accounts.

My life is controlled down to how to water the plants. I'm not going down fighting but people have to understand some of the spouses may not have the financial means or even self esteem to get away or even get out to get a job. Maybe they have children or a relative with disabilities they care for.

These are just scenarios to think about. Not everyone is financially able to get out, not everyone of us at home are sitting around doing nothing, looking terrible and complaining about it. I bust my butt here and still try to look my best when he gets home, if I didn't it would be hell to pay. Maybe "they" aren't doing what it takes to keep "us", maybe they are.

What I'm trying to say is unless you know the person's situation. Don't be so quick to judge. Some of us fell in love with someone many years ago only to find out they were hiding something inside. We love them or we wouldn't bother venting about it, we'd just leave.

Marriage and trucking
by: Jodi

Wow! Act like a lady and you will be treated like one. My late husband was a trucker for over 25 years, several years we drove team and when I stayed home he still valued the things I did. I think for the most part gals that write into these sites are just looking to vent. If you married a
trucker, figure out how to make your marriage work. It's not an easy life on the road, I know because I have been there. And right now I would love to have that life back with a man I love.

My 2 Cents About It
by: Hervy

Thanks for chiming in. I agree with some of what you're saying.

I feel at home spouses should find a way to develop healthy relationships, earn income and communicate your desires for trucker's contribution to homemaking.

Unfortunately if you've not been this person for a long time, becoming this person could be challenging and they will wonder what the changes are about.

My suggestion is to respond with....Something like.....

"I have decided to take a journey of personal development and invite you to come with me. I want a stronger relationship with you and better life. It requires these changes or...improvement in these areas."

Don't sit around disqusted holding it all in. Wondering when things will change. Do something different to effect change.

If you are reading this, then there are things that you can do. There is not an excuse you can give me that I wont have a comeback to.

You CAN work on improving your situation in some way. At least a little each day.

What if spouse is uninterested? Do what you can on your side. Work on yourself and the trucker will either wake up or back off. You have to judge your next step after that based on conditions on the ground.

That or keep living how you're living. Have to choose. Might be tough but it already is right?

So focus on creating a better life.
