Do you feel it is ok to go out with the girls even if it is 1 x every 2 months?

I don't mean getting drunk and staying out all night. I mean for dinner and a few drinks. Dancing a little, shopping or getting manicures then lunch.

  • I go out with my friends at least that often for dinner and drinks, and then we go to the beach every year for a long weekend. We don't go dancing, I'm just not into dancing with anyone but my husband, but we do shop, eat, and gossip. My husband doesn't mind - he knows the happier I am, the happier he is!

  • Absolutely, I think that makes you a healthier momma. You have to have relationship outside of SO and kids.

  • I think it is 100% reasonable, but as far as dancing and clubs go,, I only do that with my spouse or another couple,, just because it makes me feel odd to dance/and or be hit on by other guys.

  • Yes why wouldn't it be? You're a mom not a prisoner.

  • Of course. However make sure your hubby gets to go out with the guys just as often and that you can afford it. I think it's important for kids to know you have a life outside of them.

  • Why wouldn't it be? My husband and I agree that both of us should be able to go out with friends to let loose, despite being married with kids. He prefers his friends come over for a cookout and I like girls movie nights, dinner/drinks, etc. I'm still adult and like to have time away here and there.
