You're right again, Greaser! I did have a booth and I made big bucks and drove an Altima and bragged about it.

The fact remains you are still a trashy, slutty, short, fat oompa that takes other womens rejects and you will never amount to anything.

Beauty comes from the inside out, ugly is as ugly does.

I will not be able to participate in our usual banter for the next month, my business is having a booth at the bridal fair this weekend then I have to finish up the details of my own wedding and then go on my honeymoon in San Augustine. Do enjoy your shallow, empty, pathetic (I notice by the times you post that you must be coming in from the bar scene, SAD) excuse for a life in your "nice" car and your glamorous job. Ta ta

Hello my fellow oilfield wives..we are not alone..comment on whatever is on your mind and we can help each other cope with our hard working loving husbands, being gone and missing them all the time.
every oil field distance worker cheats.. be it physically, or online. I know this cause I would hear from it from other oil field wives or from my then husband... my husband or I should say x husband of 30 years.. would tell me these stories of what men did against their marriage... Even showed me pictures of other oil field workers and there girl friends they would have in different state.. I acutally thought my marriage was special.. that we were Not going to be that statistic.. well to say the least I got egg on my face big time... 30 years of trusting down the drain.. it started with offshore rigs.. my x would get on these card games with groups on the internet... sounds innocent right? well its not, they have private chat rooms.. where your hubby is talking to some woman.. next thing you know they are meeting form drinks.. It got so bad, that my x had women in 5 states and believe it or not one in canada.. she was so bold she convinced my x to be with her for christmas.. and my x said he was working on a rig that week... wow .. I fell for it all... the money lies.. the driving lies about couldn't make it home, cause it would cost more for gas then him staying where he was in a motel room... sounded real.. but really he just didn't want to come home, wanted to cheat.. What realy makes me mad.. is how the oil field companies sends your hubbys checks through another company who writes the checks.. your husband can have his checks split to any amount.. with medicare, health federal taxes show it being paid for that amount... then the other check he split off goes to his girl friend or his other secret bank account.. where he pays his girlfriends cars and rent ect.. yep.. it all came out in the divorce.. and it hurt like a tone of bricks on your chest.. but you move on. my only advice to a WIFE of an oil field worker, is to believe only if you see.. and start hiding money from HIS checks for you and the kids.. cause its not WILL he cheat.. but When... and pray he doesn't give you a disease... and remember don't feel guilty for saving money he don't know about.. cause he sure as Heck is paying for his women friends...

Thankfully alot of things have changed in 30 yrs!

My husbands money goes straight into my bank account. I get text messages on everything.

My husband is a oilfield mechanic so if he does go out on location, its not for long.

I trust my husband...but as a women and as a wife, Im always on my toes and two steps ahead.

If all the wifes knew each other then we would hear our husbands talk then tell each other...They would get caught eventually.

Im sorry YOUR husband was like that. Im sorry he did that too you but NOT all men are like that.

Being a Drillers wife is one of the toughest things in the world. Gone for days, weeks and even months at a time. For those of you who say that you don't have to "worry" about your husband while they are gone proves your ignorance. At any given moment something could happen to those men. A line could snap, chains could tangle around someone and kill them instantly, a gas pocket could be hit under ground and within seconds the rig is on fire. If your husband or whoever is not in the oilfield then you have absolutely no right to critisize. Who knows tomorrow the oilfield could go under and none of those men could have a job. It is tough work your husbands come home and sleep for days after their hitch. Trying to raise a family so your children know their father is almost impossible. You never get to go on family vacations because anytime of the day or night the pusher could call and tell your husband he has an hour to get there. Get a life and quit trying to make eachother feel bad.

My daddy was a driller. Damn rig took his finger. I know exactly what your saying. Thankfully my husband hasnt been gone that long. He is a rig mechanic but my daddy was gone for months on end. Barely remember him in my childhood. Its definitly hard on everyone in the family!

I was a stripper for 10 years and I never had to suck a d!ck to make my money. A stipper charges for her time and conversation not to let some a$$ touch her. A stripper and a prostitute are NOT the same.
You seem very proud of being a prostitute.

I never said you have to prove anything to me. I also must CLEARLY be the ignorant one throwing out cuss words, it HELPS so much to get your point across :/
The fact that you have a job already further proves that you are that type of woman who feels she can't have a life while her husband is away. You are dependent on (maybe not money wise), but in other ways.
Let me break down what I was saying barney style:
When I said get a job, get out of the house & get your own life that is exactly what I ment.
I did not assume anything about education! That was out of your mouth.
Use the time apart from your husband to better yourself in some shape or form wether it be work, fitness, or education. Hang out with your friends or make new friends. There is no point in mopping around missing your husband it will do you no good.
Again like I said before just deal with it!
Lady it's like this... Our husbands/ boyfriends have a very dangerous job. They work long hours in excruciating heat, and they do risk their lives every day. We don't know how long they will be on one location, and we also don't know how far away their next location will be away from home. We are strong enough to be apart from them at months at a time however, don't you dare sit there behind that computer screen and act like It's not normal to miss the people you love. And for the record, most oilfield women/girlfriends do not care about the money, because we aren't gold diggers. Oilfield guys aren't uneducated lady, and neither are we. And just so you know.. I am in clinicals for occupational therapy, and I also work, and I have a social life, but that does not take the empty feeling away that I get when I lay my head down to go to sleep at night, and I don't know when the next time my boyfriend is going to call because he doesn't have any cell service on location, or when will he actually be off on a holiday, or if we have kids together, I wonder if he will be apart of their lives and be a coach to their little league team and what not. So I feel that YOU need to realize exactly who your talking to, we are independent women and we have to be because a lot of the time we are playing the role as a single mother regardless of how much money is involved.. money isn't everything. So YOU GET A LIFE!!!!!!

First things first hoe bag we do live like military wives. We always worry if that phone conversation is going to be the last. My husband has had many close calls.like him almost having blocks fall on him. His head getting blown off in the mud room do I need to go on. Not to mention he fights for his life out there I guess you don't talk to your husband because if You did you would know they get guns pulled on them, nasty wet backs breaking into their vehicles and stealing their shit. Your husband needs to set you straight quit watching black gold its fake.

I am just so tired of moving & ready to settle with our 13 month old son. I am currently in Central, AR. my husband worked here for several months, then the rig moved to Kansas. I am just tired of not knowing anyone & not having the support of family & friends.
It is very hard being a oil field wife, raising a little baby. He is gone 2 weeks at a time. I'd love to go back to work, but with my husbands schedule & daycare being mon-fri (8-5) & not knowing anyone where I live, I have no family or friends to help with the baby.

I grew up oilfield my grandpa worked to support his family was an honest god fearing man, my daddy an even better man has been on rigs for 20 years been married to my mother for 17 he adopted me and my brother and was an amazing father when he didn't have to be and my husband has been on a rig for a year... people wanna talk about oilfield wives like we are uneducated or ignorant how about you spend a month with one call a day from the person u would give anything for... my husband took this job to give me a better life and so when we have children they won't have to want, I'm a hard working woman I give 40-50 hours a wk as an er nurse and pray every day my phone rings his job is dangerous one wrong judgement call and he's gone so as politely as I can say I'm a oilfield granddaughter, daughter and wife kiss my ass if u have a problem with it...

Every bit of this is ridiculous, I am married to a man who works off shore he works six months out of the year and I never know when he will be able to call or if he will have to work over what he is supposed to. It isnt that we cant live our lives without them it is the fact that when you marry someone they are now a part of your life, you confide in them and at certain times it does get hard to be away from them. I still manage to live my life without him, & dont complain about it because that is his job and this ,is OUR life. however being at home isnt the same without him here and life is totally different when hes home, it isnt easy and alot of us do have to worry about our husband's LIFE while they are gone, one thing goes wrong on that rig and they are very likely to never come home. It isnt easy at times it takes a very strong woman to be able to live without their husband especially when deaths happen, you have a child, etc... while they are gone and you have to deal with everything when they are the only person that you want to be there, so in my opinion it is comparable to being a military wife, not as bad but COMPARABLE Like someone said above unless youve been there you shouldnt comment, not being childish or trying to start an argument or anything like that but I was in a way offended by the fact that some people on this are running others in the ground when they have no idea how they would deal with a situation unless they have been there!

I have to say I agree that is very hard, because like in my husbands case...he might be gone 3 or 4 weeks at a time and I get used to doing my thing and then he comes home and you have to adjust every single time! Sometimes we have lots of sex while he is home and if something stressful is going on it might be once. One thing I know is NOT to complain. You do that and they resent you for it. I know that it is stressful on them too. I think they all look at porn because they are gone! I dont find that bad unless they do it wen they are home too.

Do you women really title yourselves "oilfield wives" that is hilarous. I am sure it is so difficult! How do you cope with him having a job in this shitty economy, having some money in your bank accounts, having food on your table, and of course him being away for "DAYS" at a time.
You ladies just sound whiny & ingrateful.
We don't expect you to understand, as it appears that you probably have no job in this "crappy" economy. But let me tell you something....Our OILFIELD MEN work their butts off and the pay is good, but not great. Most of us live paycheck to paycheck and could use some extra help, but don't meet the guidelines and Our oilfield Men miss out on school functions,Holidays,Birthdays, "firsts" with their children,Anniversaries,Funeral s and most of the time a hot meal...just so jackwagons like yourself can have the pleasures of life..don't drive? well the bus/taxi/plane/train or whatever is powered by Our Oilfield Men/Women, wash your clothes..guess what the soap you use...oilfield product...heat or cool your house....oilfield product. When our Oilfield partners are away it's left up to US "Oilfield Wives" to be accountant,doctor,counselor,ma id,Momma and Daddy,mechanic (no if something goes wrong, we can't just call a repairman....we fix it ourselves),cook,taxi driver,mediator, yard worker, plumber,sometimes lawyer and many other things. Sometimes they're not gone for Days, they're gone for months, We are a Proud,Humble, God Fearing, Hard Working Loving, caring and compassionate family..seems dumbasses like you need to be put in your place, maybe you should find another thread to bully!
