My husband use to travel all over the world to teach company courses. Sometimes, he would be gone for six weeks at a time; sometimes, more. We had four children. For me, it was about keeping a good attitude about it. I knew he was away because it was his job. He had that job when I met him, so I knew what I was getting into if I married him. If I started feeling like the weight of the household was on me, then I would start to get depressed. But, when I changed my attitude and realized that I, also had a job to do (which was keeping the household in tact), then I had better days. Plus, we talked every day no matter where he was. And, that did make things easier, too.
