An otherwise great man, person, and dad, but a it enough?

The title pretty much explains the whole situation...but his job is very demanding, we live in a place where its hard for me to make friends, should I just find my own hobbies an get over it or what?

  • Whatever you come up with, be careful to approach him with your concerns and ideas in a Loving way. Avoid sounding as though you are complaining at him, and focus on the real reason that this concerns you - your Love for him, and your desire for more time together.

  • Only you can decide whether it is enough for YOU. You say he is a great man, person and father... what more are you really looking for? Does his work fulfill him and make him happy or is he working that much in order to support your family? Or is the problem that you feel that he doesn't HAVE to work that much, but he chooses to spend his time working rather than spending it with you...
    Ask yourself these questions and figure out what it is that is REALY bothering you, and deal with that issue specifically. Try to seek solutions for yourself that will fill whatever the void is. Yes, you certainly should have your own interests seperate from him, but if you feel you need more time together, think of ways you can make that happen. Can he come home early one night a week? Take a day off once a month? Can you alter your own schedule to spend more of his free time with him?
