my husband has worked off shore since the night i graduated high school. we had been married all most a year then. it has been 9 yrs. since. i have 3 kids that have all been born since then. being a part time single mom has it blessings, hard ships, and learning experiences. so its not all bad good happy or sad. i am content with the life of an oilfield wife. it has its advantages and disadvantages.

Hi. My hubby works in oilfield in north Dakota. I stayed behind in tx due to no housing . But I think oil field in williston can be bad because men or up there with no wife's and. Strip clubs. I have heard terrible stories and now have to learn to trust again . He has moved out of that area and I moved from Texas to south Dakota but he is still not home much and I'm in s.d and he is 200 miles one way. And I know no one I'm so lonely ( how can I find oil field wife's in my area

yes it is nice to talk to others out there. i would't say i am jumping for joy that charles works off shore but it treats us well and pays the bills. i grew up poor and it is nice to not have to freak out about money like my parents had too. this job laying off scares me but not too much i can do either. yes i have become accustomed to being an oilfield wife too. sometimes it is like you are a part time wife and partime single with non of the benifits of the single life. you are mom and dad while they are gone. but ihave learned how to do things myself. whick is a blessing. i haven't figures out yet do they live on the rig or do they live at home. is it vacation at work or vacation at home. ha ha ah ha

Me and my husband have been married for two and a half years but have been together for eight years and he has worked offshore the whole time. I remember in the beginning how hard it was for me to watch him leave and how much I used to cry. It is still hard to watch him leave, but the tears do not fall as easily. I have become accustomed to the life of an oilfied wife, but I'm not sure that I would say that I am content in it. All of my friends say the the reason me and my husband have such a wonderful relationship is because we know what it is like to miss eachother and I guess that is true. Absence makes the heart grow fonder is what they say. It is so nice to find a place where you can talk to other people who know just how you feel.
