I feel lost. I have been with my husband for 16 years but only married the last 5 years. I feel that we have lost alot between us for haveing 2 kids and for that fact I work days he works nights and he only getsmaybe 1 day a week mostly during the week which I have weekends off. He is a wonderful man and a great father. But lately we have no connection. He keeps making comments that love cant keep people together. I use to believe that love can surpass anything but lately I think he is right. Love cant be the only thing. Its just become that we never see each and never really talk. We never fight and we are open and upfront with each other. I guess I just feel lost. I see my friends go on dates withthere husbands and am like I can say I havent done that since having kids. We reallyhave no time. But fear if we dont start making the time or doing something we will really be done. So with that said am I the only one who is going though this and if not what are you doing to change things?

My DH and I are in a similar position. He works 6 days a week, 12 hours a day, and his job is far away. Because of this, we only have a couple nights a week and one day. He wants to spend time with the kids on his day off, I don't blame him. But I also want to be able to go out to a movie and dinner with him. The last time we did that was in 2007. My mom use to watch our kids so we could go out and be together, but now that she is dead, we never have any time. It's hard, and I am jealous of all of my friends. I would love to have a date night, and never get it. My DH thinks that a good date night is sex, but he isn't the one who has to nurse the baby or get up with any of the kids in the middle of the night. We really need some time for ourselves.
