    I drive. Dear Fiance is a suck ass driver, in my never humble opinion.

    I hate driving and have always preferred my SO drive. Lately I’ve been driving more because SO had back surgery and needs to lay back in the car. I can’t wait to go back to him driving!

    @SouthernGirl:  I’ve had to take over some of the driving because Darling Husband is such a terrible driver. I hate it.

    SO freaks cuz he’s not in control when I’m driving. Also I dislike driving, so he drives I navigate. I do verbally correct his following distance on the freeway because if I don’t remind him he will tailgate 20ft behind people at 70mph. Other than the following thing he’s pretty safe. Though we drove my vehicle on a 400 mile roadtrip the other weekend and he almost hit someone in the first half four because he forgot that a minivan is WAY heavier than a small car and stops a lot slower. So him driving my car makes me nervous.

    It usually depends on which car we’re taking. If we’re taking my car, I’m more likely to drive, and vice versa. We’re both pretty good drivers but Fiance can get kind of pissy and a-holeish in traffic…I don’t care if he does it while he’s driving his truck, but I’ll yell at him if we’re in my car.

    We both love to drive… but I’d say he loves it more than I do.  We have two cars, and so at home either of us can go where and whenever we please without issue.

    For the Weekends, or Travelling he does the majority.  Sometimes when we go on a long road-trip I’ll do some, but more often than not, he likes to do it all.

    EDIT TO ADD – By The Way, I’ve never understood couples where only one person had a Driver’s License (by choice).  I think being able to drive is a necessary life skill… and can be imperative / a safety issue on occasion.

    It has varied through our relationship, but currently I do most of the driving. When we were very first dating it was more him, but his car SUCKED so quickly I started doing more. Then he got a new car and did most of the driving again. Then I got a new car and we started trading pretty evenly to the point of “I drove last time you have to this time” because we both hated it. But… then I kind of realized that I hate his car. I really love my car and I just think his car is uncomfortable (it is too low, my legs are straight out in front of me, I feel too short in it, and it started giving me a headache after i was used to my car). So now I drive like 75% of the time, and probably a good 15% of the time is when I make him drive my car because i dont want to drive but don’t want ot take his car either (which he doesn’t love bc he doesn’t like driving my car). So.. yea. I know some people do think it is weird I drive more, but mostly my hate for his car is just greater than my hate for driving.

    FH does  most of the driving, as he feels like he ‘should’ – but I am a much better driver 😉

    We don’t have a car of our own (doesn’t really make sense in Manhattan), but when we rent cars I tend to drive a bit more.  I just like driving!  We always split it for longer trips, though.
