We eat together about 6 days a week. One day he doesn’t have enough time to sit down for a meal so on that night we just graze separately. Of course our eating together consists of sitting on the couch watching tv with plates in our laps….we have no table…. but I am glad to spend the time together.

About five or six times a week we have dinner together and on the weekends we’ll usually have two meals together per day.

Maybe three times a week? We are not quite married (21 days!!), but I have late shifts and he has early ones for work….

Every day…twice a day…(we eat lunch at work).  We have similar work schedules, so it works out well for us.

We usually eat lunch and dinner together every day. It’s been nice for us to cook together and spend that time together, but eating man-meals has not been friendly to my waistline! Not quite like JennyBryde, we don’t work together, we both telecommute and meet for lunch.

We have similar work schedules and we probably eat dinner together 4-5 days a week most of the time?  And we take turns making breakfast on the weekend.

We ALWAYS eat together. If I have to work late he will wait for me, truly, no matter how late even though I insist that he eats.

It’s just one of the things we do, we eat dinner together. And we both love to cook so that’s a plus. Usually on the weekends we will make a nice meal together that we don’t have time to do so during the week.

We usually eat dinner together pretty much everyday of the week. If we don’t eat together at least once a day, I get sad.

It depends on the month!  FI is a phsyician and his schedule changes monthly.  Some months he is home at 6, some 8, some 12 and some in the middle of the night!  So, we eat dinner together whenever he is home at a reasonable hour.  This month we will eat together every night : )

Same goes for weekends – on the days he is home at a reasonable hour (or home at all) we eat together.

We eat together at least once every day. I get up with him in the morning and chat with him while he has his breafkast and coffee and then I go back to bed for an hour before I have to get up and get ready for work. We have dinner together practically every night and on the weekends we have breakfast together too, sometimes lunch- but I’m usually out and about by then.

We eat together twice a day on week days (breakfast and dinner) and three times a day on the weekend, usually. FI has an interesting schedule since he’s in college and working nearly full-time hours, so there are some nights when he doesn’t get home until 9:30. He has a gap between shifts, however, so we sneak in a quick supper earlier in the night. The nights when he gets home at 8 p.m., however, are a little hard for me – it’s difficult for me to resist eating supper earlier in the night.

We eat dinner together about 5 or 6 times a week.  The other 1 or 2 night one of us it out with friends.

We make sure there’s no TV, no radio, no distractions.  It’s really nice to be able to catch up and hear about his day.
