How often do you and your SO spend the entire weekend together? Friday night-Sunday night just the two of you doing fun things together? It’s something that I do value, and while I wouldnt want to do it all time, I do like to have a weekend just to ourselves every once in awhile. Maybe once a month or even once every two months. My husband doesn’t seem to feel the same way, and he’s almost always off doing his own thing one day out of the weekend. Again, that it totally fine 80% of the time, and I enjoy doing my own thing too. But, there is just something special about us dedicating a weekend to us. Do you feel the same? How often does this happen for you?
Edit: I will add that I don’t just mean the two of us alone. I would count the two of us going to hang out with friends together into the “us” weekends. I guess I just mean weekends where you don’t spend time apart.

We try and schedule one weekend a month where it’s just us and no plans involving anybody else. That doesn’t mean we won’t have errands/chores to do, but it means that we can do them in our own time and aren’t committed to anything specific.
As much as anything, it’s to be sure that we get some downtime now and again. I find being on the go constantly quite hard work!

My FH and I work long hours Monday through Friday so we hold our weekends sacred. Going out to dinner on Friday evenings is our thing. We never miss it. We also spend every Sunday lounging around. Saturdays sometimes get a little messy with errands and family obligations but we typically try to spend those days together too. I suggest making one night a weekend your date night and stick to it!

Very rarely due to the fact that I work normal office hours and he works emergency services shifts. On the rare occasion that he has the weekend off we spend the whole time together, usually partially just us two and some time together with friends. We would like to spend a lot more spare time together but it’s just impossible at the moment. I feel jealous of couples that can regularly do that.

We spent Friday to Sunday night together most of the time. It is probably less than once a month that it is just us though, usually we see friends on Saturday afternoon and sometimes the night, and we go for a roast and some drinks on Sunday but our friends overlap so we are still together.

Most of the time. Do you live together? We both work long hours during the week so the weekend is our time to be together.

If I am not working, then we spend pretty much all weekend every weekend together. He might go grocery shopping without me, but that’s pretty much it.

We spend every weekend together. We have a lot of outdoor hobbies and projects we work on together and it’s just natural to do them with one another. We also work together during the week for half of the year.. so I think we spend more time together than most couples.

99% of all weekends. We usually have our kids part of the weekend. Sometimes he goes to work for 3-4 hours of OT on Sundays. Aside from that, we are together.
Either of us could go out alone anytime and occassionally we do. But honestly we are eachothers favorite people to hang out with so we usually go out together with friends or just the two of us.

Most of the time we spend all weekend with each other, but it’s rarely just the two of us. Friday nights we go out to karaoke and hang out with all our friends there. Saturday night we get together with friends, go out to karaoke again, or go out to a bar where we’re sure to run into people we know. We attend any weekend family events together. Sundays are often our one-on-one days where we’ll lounge around at home, run errands and do chores together, and/or watch movies together.
Every other Sunday afternoon FH gets together with friends to play Dungeons and Dragons, so I use that time to get cleaning or wedding stuff done. That’s the only weekend time we’re apart regularly. Sometimes he has a guys’ poker night or I have a girls’ night (I actually have one coming up in a couple weekends), but those are infrequent, and we usually miss each other when we’re apart anyway.

Every weekend, we spend 99% of our spare time together, we visit family and friends together too, occasionally I will go out for food with a couple of my friends without her, but that’s because she doesn’t really gel with them otherwise we would probably go together.

We live together and spend the majority of our weekends together, either just us two or going to events/etc. with friends, but it’s rare that we spend every single hour of the weekend together. Generally at least one of the two days (when we’re home & not traveling), I spend a 4-5 hour chunk of time by myself riding my horse and going to the gym.
A lot of the downtime we spend together, we’re each doing our own thing, too – like right now, my husband and I are in the same room, but he’s playing video games with a friend online, and I’m messing around on the computer.

We spend the majority of weekends together for basically the whole time. But we’re not always doing every activity together even though we’re in the same room. I might be drawing while he’s cooking, or I might pop out for a run while he does an errand.
I go out with my friends without him about once a month. Him maybe once every 2 months (he’s more of a homebody).
What’s your husband doing while he’s out? Do you guys just have different hobbies maybe?
