If you are having a hard time making ends meet, would you tell him to cut back from going out with the boys? I cut back but it is not fair. Should I go out too?

Yup, I know when we had children we had to cut back every were. Going out was the first to go. If he hasn't come to this on her own, try some subtal persuasion. Going over the family budget and discussing how you can make it work might help. Maybe then he would see how much is being spent on "the boys" and he would volunteer it. Or the two of you agree on a set amount of fun money and you get it in cash, when it is gone it is gone for the month. Good luck, you both are entitled to some fun, but only if it is fair and you can afford it.

I would have to say yes. We have gotten use to saying that "we need to go and blow off steam" or "I need to have some time to myself". I don't think so. If our life gets crazy, we do things together and not apart. We use to get the tent and go. Now we get the motor home. We go to a ball game, we go to the beach, we go to the lake. We do something as a family. We rent a movie, pop some corn and relax. We build a fire in the back yard and roast some marshmallows. We do free stuff if even that is too much. We never did something without the other. I would hope we don't need a break from each other.
