  • Yes, we do.

    We are separated right now so I was thinking tickets too a show. Something we can try to reconnect with.

    The kids wonder why mom and dad don't get anything from Santa. So, we always buy a little something.

  • If we have any money left over after we buy presents for the kids... then we go shopping together and buy one present that we both can use...

  • Just the kids. Last year he made me a home cooked dinner, with no kids. You can still do thoughtful things for Christmas. It doesn't have to cost anything.

  • When we have the money. This year we will have a couple small items to unwrap for the boys sake, but we are buying a 50 in flat screen right before, so that is our big gift to each other.

  • Of course. Marriage should be nourished and not taken for granted. It is the most important Earthly relationship we have and we should put our spouses first before our children in order to have a long lasting marriage that actually lasts until death do us part. The kids move out one day and then what? if conditioned and pruned just right you will enjoy the rest of your lives together... If you put all your energy all those years into just making sure the kids were happy, then when they're gone you're left with 2 miserable people who realize they don't really like each other and get divorced like my folks after 30 years. Take my advice trust me get each other something special each Christmas, birthday, anniversary, Valentine's day, mother's day, father's day.... etc etc..... even if its inexpensive. it's the thought
