My husband and I have started watching the full Sopranos seasons starting with 1 and going through it all. It is our time together that we look forward to all the time. We have Netflix so we have to wait between disks but we look forward to cuddling on the couch with tea or a glass of wine and watching the Sopranos. We also like playing Wii together or working out together. We have a gym at our apartment complex so we try and go together during the week.

We do have our seperate time where he plays video games and I watch trashy reality TV or other shows he is not into that much.

Does working count?   Because we work on things together everyday.

My husband and I actually do a fair amount together.  We have lots of DVDs and TV shows we like to watch together.  We do errands together.  We also like to ice skate, snow shoe, hike, and take bike rides together.  Once in a while we’ll visit an art museum or see a speaker.  For us, doing activities together is important — it’s good to feel like once in a while we’re just having fun!

My fiancee and I are going to start taking dance lessons together, and we absolutely love to cook and watch movies. We’re big time amateur food critics and movie reviewers. ๐Ÿ™‚ We love love love talking about films and food! ๐Ÿ™‚

We enjoy most of the same TV shows, so we’ll watch DVDs together (no cable). We’ll cook together. He’s definitely the sous chef though ๐Ÿ™‚ 

We occasionally video game together, same with poker. We game with a group of friends at least once a week. We snowboard together in the winter and bike/take walks together in the summer. 

We do most errands/chores together as well. Grocery shop, clean etc.

My fiance and I go bowling, play board games, or play Nintendo (yes, the original NES!).  We have Dr. Mario competitions!

We spend a lot of our free time together and usually enjoy the same activities.  Like others, we watch a lot of shows on DVD.  We also attend sporting events, go wine-tasting, plan day trips to do something "touristy" in our area (museum, park, ferry ride, tours, etc)…and we want to start working out together.  When the weather gets nicer we want to go camping and maybe start running outdoors or explore the various bike trails nearby.  I look forward to other comments so I can get some ideas on other fun new activities we can try…

My fiance and I were both into mountain biking and other outdoor activities before we met.  We go on bike rides together, though he’s way more into it than I am so he goes alone often as well.  We also go on hikes with our dogs several times a week, cook together much of the time, watch netflix together several times a week, and do weekend errands together.  Right now we’re also taking dancing lessons together, but he hates it so I don’t really consider it good couple time. ๐Ÿ™‚

We work out together at the gym. We started doing this after we were together for a few years. We also cook, watch movies and take dance lessons too.

We spend a lot of time together.  

We work out together most days of the week. In the evenings we either play video games,( i will only play corporative games, i would recommend civilization.)

We also run errands, shop etc.

On the weekends we do as many outdoor activities as possible, hiking, camping, fishing, which i never did before I met him but now enjoy. Or we visit with friends and family.

He also will sometimes scrapbook with me and occasionally watch certain tv shows

We like to do just about everything together.  This is surprising to me because I lived alone for 7 years before getting married and always considered myself a very independent person!

We took ballroom dancing lessons for the first few months we were married.  This was a continuation from taking private dance lessons for our first dance.  Dancing was fun for a while but I could tell my hubby just wasn’t that into it — he was doing it for me more than him.

 He likes to plan impromptu trips.  Whenever we have a free weekend he finds a place to get away.  We like to explore new places and discover new restaurants.

We have a dog, so we take her for walks together whenever we can.

We like going to the movies- but recently there hasn’t been much we can agree on seeing.

We watch Law and Order and Battlestar Gallactica together.

He got me a Wii for my birthday and we used to play it together frequently until he started playing on his own and got so much better for me that I actually wanted to box him.  So we don’t do that much anymore (too competitive).

Gee- writing it here, I’m wondering what we do with all our time?

In the evening we generall do our own thing- he’s on his computer and I’m on mine (in front of the TV).  But we always eat dinner together- at the dinner table- with no TV.

We commute to work together and nearly always run errands together, which gives us a lot of time together (and makes it a lot more fun).

We also cook and do the dishes together. On weeknights, it seems like all we have time for after work is making, eating, and cleaning up dinner before it’s time for bed, so it’s nice to do it together.

We limit our tv and computer time, since we’ve found that it doesn’t really feel like we actually spent time together. So we do our best to not eat dinner in front of the tv so that we’re actually talking over dinner. Aside from a couple of shows that we both enjoy, we don’t watch tv at night. Instead, we play board games (maily cribbage and scrabble).

We also do projects around the house together on the weekends, like fixing things, painting, etc. And we try to still have dates. Like the other week we went to the art museum and got pizza afterwards. We find we have to have a date night every once in a while.
