Hi, my husband has been struggling with finding work in our province so he has no choice but to resort to working out west in the Oil Fields. He will be gone for a month at a time. We have a house, two children and two dogs. I feel this is the hardest thing we will ever go through. I dont know why God is directing us in this path???Any other Oil wives out there that I can chat with?

Thanks for your support. This is a very tough time for us. I pray all the time asking if this is the right path for us. If it is meant to be then so be it. It will be hard and yes iit will be like a honeymoon every time he comes home:) I just hope this will not be too hard on the kids. My daughter is strong..my son not so much.Still praying something will come up before he has to leave and he can just stay home! So sad that he has to go out of province to work!

That is hard to have your husband gone when you need him for support with the kids and care of the dogs as well as companionship. Im not an oil wife but my husband used to be gone for a month at a time as a long distance truck driver when we had two young children. When he came home it was like a honeymoon everytime-was the positive. Eventually, he stopped working long haul and found a job in town. The economy was 1984 and it was a recession. Maybe not as bad as now. We praid for a good job for him and he got it. We also prayed for a good home and we were blessed with assistance from the farmers Home Association-and we owned our own home. PUSH-pray until something happens is what I learned. And make good use of a cheap cell phone company to call every day. Also you could learn to skype and talk to him and see him. The kids could also. And enjoy the honey moon when he comes home!
