Long distance love -vent

My husband and I have been together for two years and just got married in March. Since last June he has been on the road working and I know he wants to come home, I can hear the frustration in his voice but it's good money and he likes what he does. My frustration is that I am so tired of missing him and feel so lonely when I shouldn't! I'm married! No loneliness! And now we are TTC and how am I going to conceive with him only home every other weekend?!?

I know a lot of people have it worse, especially military wives but I am just so tired of it.

Thanks for listening to my vent!!!!!!!

You have every right to vent and to be frustrated with him being gone all the time. It doesn't matter what line of work he's in, it's still hard.
My husband has been in the Army since before I met him. We have been together for 6 years, married for 5. We have spent more time apart than we have together. We've only been together for 1 (!!!!!) anniversary, a couple of birthdays, and 2 Christmases. He almost missed the birth of our son, missed our daughter's 1st birthday, and all those amazing "firsts" that the kids go through.
It's hard, I won't lie. But just because my husband is military and yours isn't, doesn't mean I miss mine any more than you miss yours. It doesn't mean you don't have the right to miss him or to complain about him being gone, etc.

I'm sorry he's gone so much, and I hope you are able to get preggo soon. Just stay busy while he's gone, that's the best way to pass the time.

You're allowed to miss your dh and vent about it, regardless of his job. And even though money isn't a good enough reason to stay with a job you hate, it's a lot harder to walk away when you like the job and the money is good. Is being on the road a temporary thing? Is there any way of him maybe changing jobs (I know it's not that simple, just asking if its even a possibility). It must be hard ttc when you never see him. I agree though, stay busy, it's the best way to pass the time...

 good luck

hope you get your BFP soon!

I know how you feel my hubby moved back up to va to find a better job (which he found)but bella and I stayed behind in fl till we are able to save $ so we could move up there with him.he has been gone close to 3 months and it hasent gotten any easier.
Like pp said try keeping busy and time should fly for you.
Good luck on ttc.

Does he travel to different places or just going to one location? When my husband and I were dating he traveled for his job. Every other weekend I went to visit him where ever he was and then the other weekends he came to see me.

Quoting LML1:

For the most part he's in one place but stays at his moms and not only do I not feel like snuggling in his childhood bed but we don't get a lot of time together when I'm there. It's also more of a hassle because we have so many animals it gets costly to board them.

But we try and that's all we can do until the right job comes up in town.

Just an update. My amazing dh is home! They sent him home to work Sunday. Which, by chance is our fertile week. I couldn't be happier!!!!
