Whether you're traveling to a meeting or convention in another state or working offshore for a prolonged period of time, working in the oil industry can often mean spending a lot of time away from your home in Duncan. When you have a family, it can be hard to spend days or even weeks without getting to see your children and your spouse.
The distance and time away can put strain on a marriage and increase your chances of a divorce, in some situations. Unfortunately, in a divorce, your work schedule could begin to pose issues for child custody arrangements. If you are gone for a long time, you won't be able to assert your parental rights. That could hurt your relationship with your kids and leave you feeling isolated and lonely.
