Do you get mad at SO for going out afterwork?

Going out to happy hour or getting together with coworkers after work when s/he could be coming home to spend time with you and your family?

  • Yes i do! It is not fair that I am stuck in the house all day watching the kids and cooking and cleaning while he's at work all day doing adult things and then gets to go out after work too. I luckily have my husband trained enough that he knows better. He knows not to go out unless I have been able to go out that week or he will only go out if i am able to come with.

  • No, I wouldn't like it unless it was VERY occasional.

  • Yes if it was a once a week or more thing- and I am not given advanced notice : )
    No, if it is a once in a while and I know in advance.

  • i get upset when my hubby goes out every once in awhile but i know it's cause i never get to go out but that is really my fault so i try not to hold it against him. so i think your feeling upset about is dead on. i wouldn't like it during the week at all and if he did it like once a week i think that is to much. like maybe once a month. i wouldn't like my hubby drinking either for so many other issues that really bug me but not sure why. we don't drink anyway but he used too so if he did again that would not fly with me.

  • i wouldnt get mad. he works hard and deserves to have fun. in fact, i encourage him to go out more. and he is always more than happy to stay at home so i can go out. i dont have to "train" my husband. we have more respect for each other than that.

  • it bothers me very much, because he doesn't go out for just a normal happy hour. he tends to make a night of it. everytime he calls and says he's going out with friend and will be home around 9 or 10 it ends up being 3 or 4 in the morning.

  • My husband never goes out with friends or coworkers, and I wish he would. I get the chance to go out with friends on occassion and always feel guilty because he never goes out himself. I definitely wouldn't want it to be an everyday occurance, but once a week would be fine with me.
