Could you be with your spouse 24/7 (just for fun)?



Question: Could you be with your spouse all the time?


Yes! Isn't that what it's all about?

No way! Absence makes the heart grow fonder

I love my husband to death, I truly do, but since he's been laid off he's been driving me nuts, and I'm sure he feels the same way about me!

My husband and I are opposites in every way; I'm an introvert, he's an extrovert. He is go, go, go, I am stay, stay, stay. He is persnickety, I am relaxed and easygoing. This typically works, but since he's been home we're driving each other up the wall. The majority of the day he runs around like a chicken with he head cut off saying, 'I'm bored! I need a project! This is boring!'

He has a FOURTH interview with the same company on Monday, so fingers crossed! 

So how do you feel? All the time or sometimes?

We could do it, and have actually.  I remember one year we got snowed in for 28 days straight.  It's good for people to have a little time on their own though.   I think when someone is laid off, things tend to be a bit more nervewracking anyway so it's easy to get on each other's nerves.

I could. DH was laid off this winter. So he was here 24/7 for 3 months straight. Lol. We even had one person make a comment to someone else about us always being together. Cause we grocery shop and run errands together. DH was like.. She knows we're married, right? I thought it was funny.

Yes, I could. He was unable to work for a while so we were both pretty home bound for a few months. Every once in a while we'd pick at each other and someone would have to go watch tv in another room or something but for the most part we cherished it.

Ummm no. I need space and time for myself

I love my husband and I love spending time with him, but we both need a little time apart (even if it is just doing things in separate rooms in the house) from time to time so that we can appreciate our time together more.

I love spending time with my DH, but sometimes I just need some time to myself or with gal pals.

Nope, we like to irritate each too much. Its fun in small doses.

I am with my husband 24 hours a day, and most days I'm good with it.  Today, after he screwed my phone up just trying to buy a sng that I just love, moved videos from storage on to the main screen and generally messed up everything, then blamed it on me....meh, love him, just not real happy right now.
