My hubby is about to get his CDL and it looks like he's gonna have to drive over the road for a couple of years bcus all the local jobs want experienced drivers. I know it's good money but I'm not looking forward to this. We have had some issues in the past, lots of lying and and infidelity. I'm worried that our relationship is not ready for this, we never got the chance to go to counseling to work everything out. I just came back home and accepted his apology but he knows that if are anymore eff-ups then I'm gone for good. Does anyone out there have a SO who drives over the road for weeks at a time and how has it affected your relationship?Answer Question
Hubs drover OTR for 10 years. He now runs locally and is a volunteer fire fighter. Any questions about the trucking industry or family dynamic feel free to message me.
It is hard on the entire family. Even when you get used to it. If you have trust issues with infidelity they will get worse in this line of work. I am going to be up front about it.
