    @Bunny_the_Bride:  We spend the majority of our time together, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

    My husband and I spend a good amt of time together, since u know, we live in the same place.  We usually do our own thing for a few hours on the weekend and spend the rest of the evening hanging out.  Now that I’m pregnant, he seems to hang out with me alot more, I’ve tried pushing him to hang with his friends but he says he wants to hang with his preggo wife.  Well, if you insist boo 🙂

    No, we’re still pretty independent. I would say our time together and time not together when we aren’t working is 50/50 depending on the week. We both have our separate interests and love spending time with our friends alone (him with the guys, me with the ladies). We do spend time ogether but not doing the same thing (but I count that as together in general). I’ll read or watch a movie and he’ll be on the computer or whatever. We like it!

    God no. I don’t think he wants to tag along when I hang out with my sister, my best friend or their daughters. Plus he works long retail hours.

    Pretty much, with the exception of work. We love spending time together, wouldn’t have it any other way! We hang out with other people too, but usually together. When I have to be away overnight for work he plays video games. It’s his solo hobby haha. I like to be crafty and do wedding stuff right now. But ven those things we do ‘together’ we just both do our own thing while we hang out.

    We’re not attached at the hip though. We both do things on out own when the need arises (we rarely shop together.. That’s because he rarely shops ever!) and I’m not opposed to hanging to with the girls (the few that I have…) he’s got a friend or two that he visits on his own. They play video games and that’s not my thing. Ah boys!

    I wouldn’t be marrying him if I didn’t want to spend most of my time with him!

    My husband and I are pretty much always together. We work together, so we’re basically near each other at all times. We get up and get ready for work together, drive to and from work together, do all our grocery shopping and errands together, work on the house together, cook and eat our meals together, and exercise together – we’re both runners and do all our runs together unless one of us is sick or injured. We both have a pretty good circle of friends who we see often, but we usually hang out as a group. That being said, when one of us does want to see family or friends without the other person or wants to do something for fun that the other doesn’t enjoy, we readily agree. We understand how important it is to have some independence.

    I need one hour of the day alone..but that is in the same house for those minutes when I first wake up. LOL. We are very much together all the time and I prefer it.

    We spend almost all of our time outside of work together. We love just sitting on the couch together watching Netflix or snacking and talking. He needs “me time” more than I do, so I normally do a girl’s night once a week so he can do whatever he wants (videogames, watch basketball, waste time online). It’s sort of his “charging” time where he can relax. He’s a teacher so he’s constantly being talked at and pulled here and there all day so he needs a little bit to unwind sometimes. I, on the other hand, want to be together all the time! Haha, so I make sure to have girl nights or whatever and I’m working on picking up hobbies that I can do in the same room, but separately.

    Other than weekly girl’s night and an occasional boy’s sports night, we always go out together. We’re friends with all the same people and I love hosting everyone with a game on. Besides my bachelorette, I don’t think I’ve ever been to a bar without him!

    @SarahCF:  That’s exactly how it is with my Fiance and I too. Most people don’t understand it and think we are crazy for working together – oh, but for us, replace “exercise together” with “sit on the couch and watch TV together with a bag of chips” lol

    My fiance and I will be together all the time once we’re married. We have been long distance the majority of our relationship, so it will be much needed time together.

    No, we don’t spend all of our time together; while I would venture to say that we spend most of our non-work hours together, we’re apart at least two if not three nights a week. Wednesday nights I volunteer and am not home, Friday nights he has a fighting game night at the university, and then usually he spends another evening with friends.

    Fiance is a classic extrovert and needs social interaction to be happy. I’m a classic introvert and require alone time to be happy. Therefore, he usually hangs out with friends once or twice a week, and I normally get my alone time. This works perfectly for us both.

    Heavens no! We share a house together and that’s enough. I couldn’t imagine dragging him around to go shopping with me or him dragging me around to watch football at the bar with him. I believe that you appreciate someone more when you have time apart.

    Most of our social time is spent together, yes.  We occasionally have solo time with friends, road trips, girls nights, etc, but it’s rare compared to the time we are together.

    Works for us.  He’s my favorite companion.

    We work apart and we both volunteer, so besides a 40 hour work week we are apart another 9ish hours for the volunteering. On Monday nights we do our own hobbies separately,vso while we are in the same house we aren’t “together”. We are together the rest of the time for the most part. I occasionally have a girls night with the ladies in my family, but only about once every three months. And he occasionally has an outside the house game night with his friends but again probably only every 4-5 months. 

    Generaly when we get home from work we will have dinner and then do our own thing (like I’ll go to the gym and he will take our son out somewhere, or I’ll play with our son in the backyard while he does laundry and works on his own small business. But after our son goes to bed, we spend it together.
