I’m asking advice for those who have had to travel for their job that have a girlfriend/wife/significant other. How did it effect your relationship, if at all? Was it sustainable? I suppose it depends on the amount of traveling done. Here’s my situation and would like to hear other personal accounts and stories if you have ‘em.
I started a job a few months ago that will require me to travel 7-8 times a year (about twice a quarter) for 5-days at a time. To me, this really doesn’t sound like much. But, my girlfriend is having an incredibly hard time coping with this. She's afraid she won't be able to sustain this long term. I am not seeing it as a huge deal. A few days apart 7 or 8 times a year just doesn't seem that dire to me. We obviously feel different on the issue.
We’ve got a great relationship and are very compatible. Have been dating for about 9 months. I am a few years older than her.
Just curious if anybody has been in the same boat. Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks as always…
