How is your dh time divided? I mean how much time would you say he spends at work, with family, and friends?

I guess I'm just trying to figure out what would be consider normal. Tks.

  • My husband can be gone to work anywhere from 3 in the morning up to 7 or 8 at night but that's the military for ya...
    We spend time together as much as we can. On the weekends we might visit with friends or do whatever to enjoy the weekend.

  • My dh works 8-5 everyday. Weekends off. My dh only works 40 hours/week. He is salary so no overtime. :) He gets home everyday at 6 and we eat, play outside with our son,etc. until 8 pm.(son gets bath and goes to bed). We see family on Sundays.

  • My husband is at work from 7am-7pm most weekdays and at least 5 hours on Saturday. If he doesn't have a meeting or something in the evening he is home, but he often brings work home. He spends maybe 2 hours a night with the family on the weekdays. On he is around Saturday for about 6 hrs or so. We always get him all day on Sunday!

  • around 50 hours working. The rest he spends with me alone or with me & DD. I can't remember the last time he went out with his friends. They come over for a BBQ every once in a while. But he would just rather be with me.
