    Location would help us give a more valid response.

    Also preferred type of freight/trailer, and what endorsements you may have will play into it.

    @Chinatown is one of out better folks to point you toward potential employers.

    If you and wife don't have minor children at home, you both can sign up for jobs on cruise ships. Free lodging and free meals and a paycheck.
    See the world and get paid for it.
    A few drivers on this forum did that with success.

    You can also sign up for re-training and a new career on the WIOA Program (your state), and get free training in the trades. No cost to you. You and the wife can both do this.
