Does your spouse travel any with his work? How much does he travel? How do you cope without your spouse when he is gone? My husband used to travel some with his job before we had kids which wasnt too bad. But now that we have a child it is different. We found out a few days ago that starting in January my husband will be traveling to a different state for a project his company is working on. He was told he could travel up to 50% of the time which averages out to be 2 weeks out of a month....the least amount would be 25% depending on the needs of the project. This would last for a year until the project is completed. I am having so much anxiety about this situation because I am not used to my husband being gone and we have a very close relationship and also our son has ADHD so he has special needs. I am afraid my husband being gone will cause us to grow apart. I do not have family around to help me when I need it where I live...however I do have a church family that would be willing to help in time of need or emergency. I am afraid I will get lonely with my husband being gone. How do I cope with this? How do you manage the kids, household and everything else with your spouse being gone if he travels? How do you cope with the lonliness? Any advice is appreciated.
