As truck companies are struggling to find qualified applicants to get behind the wheel, the industry is now seeking married couples as future truck drivers.

Older pre-retirement couples are being sought by the truck industry for their dependability and flexible schedules. Older couples are often empty-nesters, looking for a career that keeps them occupied after their children have grown up and moved out.

Jim and Eva Sisler, a truck-driving couple, are profiled on MSNBC.com. The Sislers started driving as a way to build up savings for retirement. They also enjoy the traveling life of truck driving.
