Rarely. We usually DO spend most of the weekend together but not really doing fun things. I’m a teacher and have 90min commute every day, so most of my grading and prep work is done Saturday and Sunday. We’re also both too tired to do chores during the week, so we go grocery shopping, clean the house, work in the garden etc. There are those rare weekends when I don’t have a lot of work to do and the chores can wait but then we often arrange to meet friends because we rarely see them. So weekends of 100% fun only really happens when we’re on holiday.

We pretty much spend every weekend together and rarely do things seperate.orth noting we don’t live in our home country so we don’t really have seperate friends, so when we do go out with friends it’s always together. But yeah unless it’s the occaisional 2 hour or so to get nails did, cut some hair, we tend to spend our entire weekend together.

We both work standard M-F jobs.

About once or twice a month, DH makes plans to go golf or fish. So we wind up spending the entire weekend together 2-3 weekends a month. Some months it’s more, some less. We both need a lot of Quality Time in a relationship, though, so it happens naturally.

On our feel weekends together, we usually spend one entire day working out, grocery shopping, and meal prepping, and the other doing chores, taking our dogs to the park, and/or something social with friends.

We actually have fridays off together, and usually spend the entire day together. Sometimes in the evening I work, maybe 1-2 times a month. We spend most Saturdays and Sundays together too, unless I’m working or he’s playing basketball with his friends for a few hours. If we hang out with friends, it’s almost always together.

Currently live separate from my husband as I am away for school. I drive home Friday’s after class, spend the half day with hubby. Saturday I’m home all day, he may or may not work and I study most of the day. Then Sunday morning I pack it back up and go back to school. Right now we are just in the unfortunate season where we hardly spend any time together 🙁

We never spend whole weekends together, unfortunately. My husband works Monday through Saturday. Sometimes he has to go out on Sundays too, either before or after church. So Sundays are our days together. I never make plans to go out to lunch with a girlfriend or even plan a phone date with an out of town friend on a Sunday.

If I was in your situation, I’d love to spend every weekend together. If he often went out and did things without inviting me to come along with him, I’d probably be hurt and feel left out.

edobbs87 :  oh man… 

like every weekend. Now i feel like im suffocating the dude LOL. 

It is pretty rare that only one of us has something to do on the weekend. It is usually me as i am in a dance group and I have forced him to go to enough shows, so I will go by myself. Or maybe the odd sports game with a friend for him or drinks with the girls for me. 

But id say 95% of weekends, it’s just us haha.

Personally, I like to spend as much time with him as possible. He works during the weekdays and is gone from 6am-4pm M-F and anytime outside of that we are together. If we hangout with friends we do so together. I can’t think of a situation where we aren’t together unless I want to go for a jog or something around the neighborhood. We even go to doctors appointments together if he’s not working lol. 

I understand that not everyone is like this. We’ve both kind of changed our hobbies to do things together instead of separate. I used to go to a rock climbing gym several times a week and I rarely do that anymore because he’s not into it and I don’t like going without him. He used to be a hardcore gamer and he hasn’t touched a console in 7 months. It doesn’t feel like a sacrifice because we chose this lifestyle.
