Hey I'm new to this site ... And I'm thankful I found it . My husband and I are going through a really rough time we've been together three years his position is operator / supervisor in the field and his current shift is 15/6 before it was 21/3 - I'm now pregnant with our first child his second and I feel alone and insecure and worried and all sorts of things and he can't tend to my emotional needs and doesn't feel he has to . I need advice I feel like our marriage is failing because of me ( may 2013 was when we married ) ... I just don't deserve his coldness as I don't know when I did wrong

Hi all!!! So I am brand new to this site and to the life of have having my guy gone for long periods. He is just starting his job out in Alberta ad his rotation starts as 28 gone 14 home but his fort stint is going to be 6 weeks gone. We have discussed all the pros and cons and have agreed that this is what we need for us financially right now. And I get that. But I'm so nervous about him being gone so long. He hasn't even left yet and I kiss him. Any tricks to make the time go fast or ways to not miss him so much? We have 2 boys 3 and 8 months so they will keep me busy. But nights and weekends I think I will struggle the most with him not here. So if anyone can give me some insight or just a friendly reply I think that may help. Thank you and I can't wait to discuss with all you women!! Xox

My husbands been doing this for 3 years now and loves being in south tx, I'm stuck in central Arkansas and lonely doesn't begin to describe what I'm feeling.

To all the 'newbies' of the O&G industry.  This is a tough life and it take tough men and WOMEN to keep holding the edges together. I was raised in the "roughneck world".  Former floorhand and welders' helper on the pipeline it can be boring, cold/hot and dangerous. I am the HSE/H2S Specialist on different rigs and pipeline. My new husband and children are hundred of miles away while I try to keep all your husbands, boyfriends and fathers safe. These men and women of the O&G do this work to keep everyone happy and make the money to pay for your first home or college for the children. Did I mention it's a tough life for everyone ?  Have faith, these men and women do what they do becouse you inspire them to work for more and work smarter so they can come back to you.

oh yea i dont go out, me and my friends just get together and let our kids play.we usually get together at my house to visit. i try to accomadate his schedule for when he is not on tour but expecting me to always be available when he is workinv i thibk is asking a little much. i have tried talkibg to him ab it but he just takes offense to it.

I wouldn't blame him for being as if you go out all the time. Family I do believe is different. And having some friends over for coffee but still incorporating his schedule might be a start? Just explain to him that you will talk to him when he is off work. A few friends and at your house is a safer feel, knowing you are safe at home so he doesn't have to worry about you. Would this sort of thing be an option?

I know I should cherish it and I'm glad he is thinking about us while he is out there and not going drinking with his buddies. I guess I just wish there was a happy medium. I only recently became a stay at home mom after having worked for 6 years and I guess just miss seeing people and feel like he expects me to do nothing but sit at home and be at his beck and call. I enjoy spending all our time together on his two weeks off and feel like my time to visit with my friends and family is for when he is at work but I don't ever get to bc I'm always on the phone. I see my parents now and after 40 years in the oilfield life my mother has no friends and does nothing but sit in the house and watch tv and play on the computer. I don't want to be that way. Just want him to know that I'm always thinking about him even though I may be visiting with friends.
