How often do you see your husband or SO?

My husband works around 15-18 hours a day so I only really see him in the morning when I wake him up and the 3 days that he's off. It kills me not to see him that often but I also think it makes our relationship stronger cause when I do see him there isn't much arguing.

  • I see my DH everyday about 6 hours a day(not including 6 hours sleep)and all day on Sat and Sun. Well, that still doesn't make our marriage stronger. I thought it really depends on the couple because I know many of my friends don't see their spouses that much but they still have a very strong relationship. Sometimes I wonder maybe the space/distance does the trick. I remember when I was dating my DH, we had a long distance relationship, only met once a month. Our relationship grew stronger and our hearts were closer. Not like now...he is watching some volience movie which I hate very much and I'm sitting 2 seats away from him. We're not talking and enjoy our own quiet time since kids are in bed. It's up to you to find ways to connect with your DH. I can tell that you have desire to do that and I know you can do it...

  • it depends on where he's at. if he's not deployed or on work ups, every day for about 2 hours to 10 hrs (depends on how far away from a deployment they are the closer to leaving the more work hours closer to just getting home less hours) he deploys for 6 months every 9 months, he just got back last month will be gone again around aprilish so yup thats our life.

  • i see him every day
    he has 2 days off so we spend those days together typically and the other 5 days he works either 12-9p or 4-1a so we spend a lot of time together. We dont argue that much though even though we spend so much time together because we're always doing something fun, or errands, or an activity so theres no time to argue...but it does happen sometimes i guess...lol mostly since ive been pregnant, i havent had much patience

  • I see my husband often. He usually works at our business in the evening...let's say from 5-10 on average, and usually takes two days off. It's nice to see him during the day!
