Home Forums Family & Parenting commuter marriage stories? Re: commuter marriage stories?


We don’t have a commuter marriage, but my husband travels quite a bit for work, sometimes over 50% of the time. I have to say the most difficult part is the transitions. I can manage fairly well without him, and like having him around, but the getting used to him being gone and to his return can cause a lot of conflict.

This is particularly true with children, because you get used to parenting one way, and then everything gets readjusted when the other parent comes home. And the kids are caught in the middle of any disagreement of how things should happen.

I wish it could be different for us, but it’s doable.
