I was just talking to my sister about this. Apparently in her family, her husband goes to work, she is at home with baby all day and then evenings and weekends they spend at least half their time apart doing things on their own and with friends. Around here, my husband is home at 5:30 and he rarely goes out anywhere. I have a once-a-month thing with friends but otherwise my social stuff is done during the day. So pretty much all weekends and evenings we spend all together. He used to come home for lunch every day, but his new office is too far away. Still, today he had a meeting in town and popped in to see us. My sister says that's nuts and would drive her crazy.
What is your normal? Do you get sick of each other? I never seem to get sick of my husband and he's been around for almost 10 years now. Maybe we're just weirdos. I think my brother and his wife are the same though. So we're not the only ones.
It's not like we can't bear to be apart or something. He goes on business trips sometimes and it's fine. It just seems to be what we do and we always have fun.
