1st and foremost I'm a mother of 4 boy's. Been in a relationship off & on for 8yrs. We've had issues with him cheating in the past. But be honest ladies do u ever worry that your guy will cheat or that things will go south with you being gone so much. I love him dearly & I know he does too but sometimes it's hard to let go of past burns. But I just have to keep in mind that no matter what happens he so far is my biggest supporter in me joining this industry. And also that my kids are all the reason I need to succeed because with or without him we got each other& I am mom& dad lol. But like I said just curious on how u guys handle it. Ok I'm done sorry if I'm a little long winded

Lena, welcome to Trucking Truth! Frankly if a man is going to cheat he will do it whether his partner is around or not. I was a stay at home mom for 12 years and my ex cheated on me several times. I don't think your presence or absence is going to be the deciding factor on what he chooses to do. Please don't ever take responsibility for his bad behavior as we all have the free will to do the right or wrong thing. Best of luck to you and know you found a great site in Trucking Truth!


When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I don't know about that man of yours. But if trucking is what you need to do, you have to be fully into the responsibilities it entails. You say you have 4 boys. What kind of trucking are you undertaking with them all living at home and you needing to be as you say, both mother and father? Which is impossible by the way. You're the mom. The single mom cannot also be a dad. Hopefully, they do see their dad. Back twenty years ago, my truck-driver brother yelled at me that I had to be both mother and father. I'm sorry, but the father jumped ship and left me to be a single mother. Now as far as earning a living, we did have to do that, right, single ladies? My daughter is grown now and she's my advocate in all this new adventure. I just learned the account I wanted is not all it was made out to be. I'll have to find another account hopefully that will allow me to go home every weekend or so. I want to be fairly close to my home state and stay east of the Mississippi for family responsibilities. (Aging mother, and about to get a place with adult daughter who needs mom again). My training, however, will take me to any number of the 48 contiguous. I'm excited and looking to see what I can see for these upcoming weeks of company training.

Just be sure to do your homework on getting the company and the account that will work for you and your family. Best of luck to you. Let us know what you decide.

Honestly u both are right I can't worry about what my boy friend is or isn't going to do. And to December I would think as a single mother you would understand the meaning of being both mom& dad. My kids father also jumped ship & unlike u with one daughter I do have 4 boy's guess what true enough I'm mom not dad I think the physicals of that is obvious but with boys I have to be the one who does the sports & the haircuts & talk about girls & teach them how to be good men & not end up a statistic of how allot of bits from single moms are supposedly pre destined to turn out. Now as my boy friend goes he helps but it's still not his responsibility when it comes down to it and thankfully I have family that is willing to help as far as when I leave to be on the road which won't be more than a year then I can get a local position u asked what kind of trucking I would be ur answer is I'll be a awesome trucker and just like u had to overcome hurdles so do I thanks for your input it makes me want this more
