Fiance is a fisherman, so there is really no such thing as weekends for us.  He works whenever the wind is not too crazy.  I’m in a program to get my bachelors that meets on Saturdays over an hour away, so I am gone from 5 A.M. to 8 P.M. on Saturdays.  Basically, if we luck out, we might be able to spend Sunday together.  We love to watch football and relax on Sundays, but it’s rare that we are able to!

Normally, the whole weekend together! 🙂  We are lucky and normally always have the weekends off together. We have a lot of the same interests, so it makes things easy. We don’t see each other a whole lot through the week, though… our weekends definitely make up for it.

Sometimes he’ll be out of town for the weekend or I will, but that’s only several times a year.

Fiance works at a firestation, so he has two days off and one day on. We typically spend 1/3 days together.

On the weekends, pretty much all of it.

He’s in school through the week though so we see each other late at night and thats it.  His mom laughed at us one friday night because I’d fallen Monday afternoon (this is an everyday thing, I’m clutzy) and scrapped my arm and he was just seeing it on Friday, she’s like don’t you live together, =)

I work Mon-Fri 7am to 4pm and Fiance is on call 24/7 365. He can get called out at any hour of the day or night and even during Christmas dinner.

If he’s off on the weekends then we spend the whole weekend together. We actually spend a lot of time together when we aren’t working because we know what its like to go months with no time together.

Well assuming we’re both home on the weekend and not entertaining anyone at our house (which feels like it doesn’t happen as often as it should)…. I’d say we spend about 50% of our time together. I’d say an “average” weekend for us looks like: 


9-12: get up, get breakfast, clean the house together

12-4: Fiance studies, I work on projects or hang out

4-bed: we have a “date” either in or out of the house


9-1: get up, work out, eat lunch, maybe run a few errands

1-9: Fiance studies/plays video games/watches sports, I do projects, go to the grocery, or hang out

9-bed: we hang out together unless Fiance is watching a night game during football season. 


I really like it bc I feel like we spend a lot of time together but I also have some alone time to just get what I want to get done done.

I work a crazy job where not only am I scheduled during the weekend most of the time but the time I’m not working I’m on call. So, we hardly ever get to see much of one another during the weekend. And when we are both home, we don’t feel like doing anything because our weeks are so hectic.

a lot usually, but it depends on how much school work i need to do (i’m in a phd program)…last weekend, we spent all saturday together, sunday morning, and then sunday afternoon i read while he watched football. it also depends on if we have plans with friends; normally we “socialize” together with friends, but the weekend before last i went to brunch with a friend by myself, and tomorrow night he’s going to a concert with friends. but we usually try to make at least some time for quality time together. we have a dog, so we try to take a really long walk and picnic to a park with him on weekends. when we used to live near his parents, we spend most sunday nights with his family too.

We live together, so basically all of the time we’re not working or doing our own thing with friends we are together. Most of the time we entertain at our home, so friends come to us haha we end up spending 99% of the weekends together.

We spend a lot of time together during the week, we car pool to work a lot, and both get out of work at 4 so we get a lot of bonding time during the week.

The weekends are more of a free for all lol! It usually ends up that on Sundays Darling Husband goes out for a couple of hours with the boys, since they don’t get to see each other during the week, and if we do it’s always guys/girls/kids ect. So they go hunting, target shooting, 4-wheeling ect… and I get to go do things with my girls! Saturdays we usually spend just him and I during the day and we tend to do group things at night. Like tonight we are hosting a pumpkin carving party with pumpkin themed food =) We love to be around our friends, either as a group or just the girls/just the guys!

We pretty much spend all weekend together! We both work regular 9-5 jobs, so it makes it easier, and we live together!

It depends on what season it is. If it’s summer, a.k.a. golf season, we spend almost no time together on the weekends. If it’s any of the other seasons we normally have one day where we go do something fun, like a day trip, or see a movie or something. The other day I usually hang out with my friends, and he watches football with his.
