  • I would try to figure out why you are happier when he is not at home and at least talk to him about it.

  • No. I would take it as a sign that I needed to work on my relationship with him so that I enjoyed his company more.

  • No. Sometimes I am happier when no one is home (including my kids) but that is just because I needed some alone time at home for myself. I think everyone would agree with this. We all need some alone time once in a while.

  • This used to be the case for me for a good few months, but then I really tried to look at the reasons for it and discussed it with him (maybe even too harshly). Guess what happened, he made a point to fix his behavior. I can't stand to have him not here now.

    That's just my case though, you can't always pin it on the guy and sometimes, even if it is their fault, they wont fix it. Its tough when that happens but really try to talk it out and be sure to make it clear to him that actions speak louder then words when you're trying to fix something.

  • Interesting you should post this today... DH was late getting home from work, and I found myself enjoying the time he wasn't here and hoping he'd be even later. But to answer your question, no, I am not and would not consider a divorce. I think it's good to enjoy our independent time. But in my case, there are some other issues that we need to work on too.
