This just popped in my mind so I thought I’d see where you all stand on the issue.
Recently, I’ve noticed a lot of people that we hang out with talking about how they get “annoyed” when they’re around their spouse for too long. They turn to me, expecting me to commiserate, and seem almost disappointed when I don’t complain about my husband. Then, inevitably, this line comes: “Well, you’ve only been married 6 months. Just wait. It’ll happen.”
Yes, we’ve been married six months, but we’ve been together for nearly 5 years. Our relationship timeline didn’t reset itself on our wedding day. And we’re still not sick of each other.
Maybe it’s because we work such different schedules. He is off on Wednesdays and I am off on Sundays so we really only have two half-days during the week when we spend time together. Maybe it’s because we’re so compatible that we just don’t annoy each other. Or maybe it’s because we purposely avoid doing things that would bother the other because we aren’t assholes? (Lol!)
So what do you ladies and gents think? Do you get more annoyed with your man/woman as time goes on? Or do you always cherish the time you have together?

noo those people are bitter! FI and i have been together over 9 years, lived together for over 2 now. we’ll get married next march. we spend soooo much time together. in fact, i’ve started working out 2 days during the week, which puts me getting home at 7pm, and he gets upset i’m not home enough lol we wend all our weekends together and never get sick of each other. i have a best friend whos personality is very similar to FIs. she and i can bicker and probably get sick of each other- but the way i put the difference between them is- i cant have sex with my friend to make things better hahah! No such thing as being sick of my FI!

SO and I don’t spend crazy amounts of time together because we are both super busy! I want to spend as much of my time with him as possible! I could see getting sick of him if I worked with him and saw him 24 hrs a day, but that’s not the case and I love seeing him when I get to see him

I wish I saw FI more, actually. Darn jobs :p
If I don’t want to be around him, it’s bad. Like, ‘leave me alone with the cats and some ice cream’ bad. He’s usually the exception to my antisocial moods.

I work in the same office as my husband, though he’s on the other side of the building and we don’t actually interact much during the day except for lunch and our coffee break. I have a chat open with him all day long (though it’s not like we’re consistently talking throughout – but it’s there). We drive to work together and drive home together. We spend the evenings relaxing together. It’s been this way nearly 4 years now.
I’m still not sick of him. I love the ever-living crap out of him, and if there’s one person that I wish I could be around all the time, it would be him.

We work for the same company, and although we’re not in the same department I can see his desk from mine. We carpool to work and spend pretty much every evening together. Haven’t gotten sick of him yet and I think we’ll be going on 10 years this year…lol.

We’ve been married 6 months but have lived together for almost 2 years… and so far so good. I have gotten sick of friends in the past when I was in school- seeing friends every lunch hour, every day, studying during breaks, etc. But I have never gotten sick of being around DH.

Thanks for your replies! I’m glad I’m not the only one!

s2bmrscook: I was married before and I was one of those people. Or more extreme. It was a very bad relationship so I didn’t have much, if anything, good to say. Now I’m in a great relationship and have finally joined the group of people who are HAPPY with their SOs! WooT!

I think it’s a matter of personalities, perhaps?
DH and I have been together 10 years, and I can say, the only time I was really finding myself annoyed and not being around him, was when we had other issues going on in the relationship…we fixed those, and that was it. We generally get along really really well, communicate well and argue seldomly.
Sometimes I am too tired to deal with his silly boy humour, but I can’t say I really ever get annoyed by him or sick of him and thus don’t want to be around him…

We have been together 4 years and married for 1. I never get sick of him! I hate how peple are always like “oh you will see its only been so and so long” If we didnt like ach other or got sick of each other then I doubt we would have gotten married! Our personalitites are very compatable and we enjoy each others company. We really only have one day a week to spend together so I really enjoy that day because even though we live together we only just come home and eat and go to bed every other day!

s2bmrscook: I don’t! I wish we could spend more time together, and we’ve been together for almost 8 years, and living together for over 6 years.
There is a small sidenote on this though: At one point during our relationship I would get annoyed with him. And this lasted a loooong time. And it was all 100% my fault. At the time, I thought it was all him. But once I realized it was me, and admitted that I needed help things were (and still are amazing). Now our relationship is better than ever. And I always encourage everyone to get help if they think they need it. It may not be the same type of help I needed, but get the help! It’ll make a world of difference!

Nope! And I get similar comments, “Wait until the honeymoon is over” and “Just wait- everything he does will drive you nuts”… I take them with a grain of salt as I run out of the office door and happily back home to him! 😀
