edobbs87 : We aren’t married yet but so far we’ve spent every weekend together except two weekends in the early phases when each of us went on a day trip to see friends. But we hated that and decided we never want to go by ourselves again because we missed each other too much.

Literally never. Our schedules suck. Dh is in law enforcement and works rotating shifts and days of the week. I work per diem (make my own schedule) and work night shift when he is off (so one of us is always home with our baby and she doesn’t need to be in daycare). Occasionally he’ll take a personal day or I won’t pick up a shift, but it’s usually only one day, and not likely to be on a weekend.

Yes I can’t say exactly how much, but I would go with not super often. Most weekends, we have Friday date night whether that’s in or out. Saturday, as of late, I try to spend at least half the day with SO and leave whatever engagements or errands I have for later in the day. I often visit my family on Saturday afternoons and he somewhat regularly meets his friends for beers. Sunday’s we are typically home together and sort of cycle through spending time together and alone throughout the day.

Spending the entire weekend together is definitely something we do do, however. And it is really nice when we have the chance because as I said, it’s not an every week thing! He would absolutely love to do it more, but I am a bit of a busy body and like to be doing my thing! For reference, we are not married, live together, in our later 20’s, no kids.

Almost every weekend.  We spend most of our time not working together.

Every single weekend pretty much unless we are visiting his parents and it’s over a weekend and he is visiting his buds. We are both homebodies and like to spend time together so no big deal.

We spend most weekends together. When I go out with girlfriends it tends to be during the week. He sometimes does happy hour with coworkers on fridays but he’s still home pretty early.  Occasionally he goes out to watch a game on a Saturday or Sunday but not too frequently.

During fall and winter probably 2 weekends a month. During spring and summer not often as he likes to golf, he usually goes on Saturdays

We usually spend Friday night and Saturday together and will visit our families on Sundays, that’s a usual weekend for us unless something comes up such as a bridal/baby shower, or something of that sort.

Most weekends. Even when we have to take my kids places, we try to go together.

Almost never. He works weekends and has 2 days off during the week, while I work all week and am off on weekends. It kind of sucks, but it’s hopefully not forever.

I would say 1 or 2 weekends a month. Dh works some weekends and some nights he’ll go out with friends or I will. But I do feel like we see each other quite a bit and any free time we have we do spend together. Maybe if you plan a very specific night a week or a particular weekend during the month where you dedicate your time to spend together, you will have something to look forward to and you both can schedule the rest of your time to take care of other obligations.

We spend a decent amount of weekends together.  Sometimes we go through months where we are really busy and don’t see each other 2-3 weekends out of the month, but overall, we choose to spend our time together.

Now you have added your edit, I’d say every weekend. About 1 per month it’s just the 2 of us, no distractions but most weekends we will spend the whole weekend together and see family and friends together. I went through a period of time where I worked weekends and we both hated it so we really appreciate the fact that we now both work mon-fri. Occasionally we will have the odd activity which doesn’t include the other (girls night or a ticket to a football match) but this is rare as we have the same friends. 

It is important to have your own time/hobbies but I think you’re saying that you feel that you value spending time together more than your SO. I hope you can chat it through and make time to spend some quality time together. Try not to focus on ‘a whole weekend’ but make the time that you do spend, fun and happy.
